2017 A.R.E. Truck Caps Bassmaster Elite at Lake Okeechobee
The Elite pros will get a second Classic warm-up, Feb. 23-26, when the schedule shifts to Florida’s famed Lake Okeechobee. That fishery, nationally known for producing gigantic Florida-strain largemouth bass, last hosted an Elite Series event in 2012, when California pro Ish Monroe won with a four-day weight of 108 pounds, 5 ounces — the fifth-largest catch in trail history. The Okeechobee Tourist Development Council and the Board of County Commissioners are hosts.
