Bassmaster Opens gives co-anglers and pros shot at top prizes

Some anglers are signing up in hopes of winning a coveted berth in the Bassmaster Classic. Others want to qualify for the Bassmaster Elite Series. And still others simply want to pocket prizes while making a name for themselves on the national tournament scene.

Whatever the motivation, pro angler rosters are filling up for the nine-event Bass Pro Shops Bassmaster Opens Series for 2013, which kicks off Jan. 31 at Florida’s Kissimmee Chain of Lakes.

Co-anglers, who fish alongside the pros and compete for a separate prize purse, have their own reasons for signing up for the nonboater division. Most hope to win a tournament-ready bass boat rig, as well as cash prizes, while many are just happy for the chance to share a boat and learn tournament tactics from some of the nation’s best fishermen — Elite Series pros like Gerald Swindle, Ish Monroe and Michael Iaconelli.
