It's Open season up north. Hope to capture this beautiful trophy on the James this week.
As you may of noticed, we added this blog recently to capture moments from fans, anglers, and B.A.S.S. staff from the Opens events. Below this post are pictures and events from the previous Open event, the Southern Open #3 on Logan Martin Lake in Pell City Alabama. Everything above this is (or will be!) from the James River. Check out Mark Hicks' preview gallery of the James river to get ready for this event.
