Officials announced a schedule change today for the 2020 Basspro.com Bassmaster Eastern Open on Lake Hartwell in Anderson, S.C. This three-day event has been moved to Sept. 23-25 to accommodate the Clemson University football schedule, which was released last week.
The Eastern Division points race and the Elite Series berths that go with it will be on the line when anglers launch onto the storied waters of Lake Hartwell in Anderson, S.C. — site of three previous Bassmaster Classics and six major B.A.S.S. events.
"The decision to move dates, while not easy, was made in the best interest of the anglers," said Neil Paul, Executive Director of Visit Anderson, which is hosting the Basspro.com Bassmaster Eastern Open on Lake Hartwell. "Our commitment is to provide the best experience for the competitors and their families during their time in our community, and this change will allow us to provide that experience."
