BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — The 2014 Bassmaster Elite Series promises to be one for the history books. The 100 or so Elite Series anglers who compete on the nation’s premier bass tournament circuit will visit rivers, reservoirs and natural lakes in 11 states as they vie for fame, fortune and a berth in the 2015 Bassmaster Classic.

Several of the fisheries are steeped in B.A.S.S. lore, and the others soon will be.

“We’ve just finished an Elite Series season that saw record attendance, record Internet traffic and record media coverage,” said B.A.S.S. CEO Bruce Akin, “but we’re already looking forward to all that 2014 will hold.”

The Elite Series, which has included eight events for the past five years, will grow to nine tournaments next year, he added, and one of them will include a fan-attracting “BASSfest” reminiscent of the old summertime Bassmaster Classics and with a $1,000,000 prize purse.

And for the first time in Bassmaster tournament history, the ninth and final event of the Elite Series will be the Toyota Bassmaster Angler of the Year Championship in which the Top 50 Elite anglers will compete for a share of the $900,000 AOY payout, along with Bassmaster Classic berths and what many of the pros consider the ultimate prize, the Toyota Bassmaster Angler of the Year trophy.
