The 2024 Bassmaster Elite Series season is right around the corner, which means it’s time for a new season of Rapala Bassmaster Fantasy Fishing. You can head over to bassmasterfantasy.com and set your roster for the first Bassmaster Elite Series event at Toledo Bend to be held Feb. 22-25.

“We’re happy to launch the games early this year to give players more time to choose their teams,” said B.A.S.S. Digital VP Jim Sexton. “With 103 Elites anglers in the 2024 field, including 11 new Elites, we all need time to research our choices.”

In case you missed it during the last two seasons, you can now sign up for text alerts to remind you about the deadline for each tournament. And, you can now see how your team is performing in real-time, during the tournament, on your Fantasy pages.

Fantasy Fishing participants will be playing for a stellar lineup of prizes once again in 2024. The Rapala Bassmaster Fantasy Fishing winner of each individual tournament will receive a prize package that is worth $4,000 or $4,500 depending whether or not the winner is a B.A.S.S. Member. In other words, it pays to be a B.A.S.S. Member!

The grand prize winner will take home a $15,000 Bass Pro Shops Gift Card, $5,000 cash, a Rapala package and an expenses paid trip to the 2025 Bassmaster Classic.

Playing Fantasy Fishing is a blast, and it’s also worth noting that it is FREE to play!
