Louisiana's Tyler Carriere will miss the remainder of the 2021 Bassmaster Elite Series season.

Bassmaster Elite Series pro Tyler Carriere will miss the remainder of the 2021 Elite Series season. The South Louisiana pro is dealing with personal family matters that will require his full attention.

“Right now, I just need to be there for the family more than anything,” said Carriere. “I’ve tried to make it work for the last few events, and it just hasn’t worked.”

Unfortunately, Carriere’s situation does not qualify for a medical hardship, but he fully intends on getting back on track in 2022 to try to requalify for the Elite Series.

“I’m going to take this time as a reset and come out next year and fish all the Opens and try to get back in there,” he stated. “Everything happens for a reason. This is what God has planned right now, and I just have to go with it.”

Carriere began his fifth year on the Bassmaster Elite Series in 2021 after qualifying in 2016 through the Bassmaster Central Opens. The Louisianan has notched six Top 30 finishes and has over $115,000 in tournament earnings with B.A.S.S.
