Fishsens – Brandon Card previews the 2015 Bassmaster Elite Series: Part two

By Brandon Card on April 20, 2015

bcard_preview_two-300x336The second half of the 2015 Bassmaster Elite Series really has me excited. We will be going to a place I am really familiar with and then three stops up north that are known for giant bass. It is going to be a great end to a season that takes us from coast to coast and showcases what the nation has to offer. This year’s schedule is a good mixture of different kinds of fisheries, and whoever wins the Angler of the Year title has proven that they can compete anywhere. Here’s my breakdown for each of the final four events and my predictions for both the winning weight and the patterns I believe will win each event.

BASSfest Kentucky Lake: June 3-7

Kentucky Lake has always been one of my favorites. I went to college at the University of Kentucky in Lexington and although it was a few hours away, I fished several big events there for college fishing and when I was fishing the B.A.S.S. Nation. It is one of my favorite lakes because it is really where I learned to fish offshore, which has become one of my strongest techniques over the last few years. When we go there, it is going to be prime for ledge fishing and I can’t wait.

This event is also unique because it is BASSfest, where anglers from the Bassmaster Opens will be fishing alongside the Elite Series anglers. It’s really a cool event and like the name says it is a festival, with vendors and tons of fans there. We will have a day off after two days, which we call half time. Those who don’t make the cut have another chance to fish on nearby Lake Barkley to get back into the main event. It’s a cool format, and I loved it last year at Chickamauga. I really enjoyed spending time with fans and talking bass fishing. If you are in the area, come by and say hi.
