Lake Seminole Online Open Series Winner Announced
The 2022 Lake Seminole Open Series has come to a climactic close! Over 1,800 competitors took part in the event, and we saw the highest number of players take part across all thee rounds - making this the most competitive event to date! Let’s remind ourselves of what went down across the intense 3 rounds of competition in the Lake Seminole Online Open Series! Round 1: Let the battle commence! Round 1 and we had some impressive limits coming in. SATYATEX was leading the way through most of the first round only to be beaten out at the last minute by DUSTALL6696. SATYATEX and BuCkEyEBoRn were right up there though, ready for a big Round 2! Round 2: All change at the top! An intense Round 2 completed, and the top 10 is now looking very different. We have new names coming up after some HUGE bags from BassingDreams and HarryStankfoot launching them both into the top 3 but it’s SATYATEX who takes the top spot in Round 2 with DUSTALL6696 dropping down to a still very respectable 6th place. It was all to play for in Round 3! Round 3: Championship Weekend shakes things up! Round 3, Championship Weekend, and the pressure was on. It was anyone’s to win and lose with the top of the leaderboard being so evenly matched going into the final round. Here are the Super Six (the top 6 anglers) at the end of our first ever Online Open Series! A MASSIVE congratulations to HarryStankfoot, our 2022 Lake Seminole Open Series Champion! An amazing effort considering in Round 1 HarryStankfoot was in 23rd place, what a comeback! That’s back-to-back wins now for HarryStankfoot having also won the Lake Chickamauga Online Elite Series [http://live.dovetailgames.com/live/bassmaster-fishing/articles/article/the-2022-online-chickamauga-elite-winner-announced] in April. Can he make it 3 in a row, or will we see a new name gracing the top of the leaderboard? Monster Bag A new feature for this event is the MONSTER BAG! This is the angler who had the biggest bag from across all 3 rounds of the competition. Congratulations to Baseballman1313 on an ENORMOUS 77lb 15oz limit in Round 2!

Angler Spotlight: Sw1fty_8_6_TTV
**Welcome to our first Anglers Spotlight. Today we have an interview with a player many of you in the community already know and if you don’t, he’s our 2022 Online Bassmaster Classic Champion Sw1fty_8_6_TTV [http://www.twitch.tv/sw1fty_8_6_ttv]. ** We talk with Sw1fty about how he prepares for online tournaments, adapting to changing conditions, and what winning the 2022 Online Bassmaster Classic meant to him. Let’s get stuck into it. Benjamin - Thank you for taking some time to talk with us and congratulations on your win at our debut online event, the 2022 Online Bassmaster Classic at Lake Hartwell, and for coming third in our most recent event, the 2022 Online Chickamauga Elite! How long have you been playing Dovetail Games fishing titles? Sw1fty - I started playing Euro Fishing back in 2015 and since then have played Fishing Sim World: Pro Tour and The Catch: Carp & Coarse. I compete in the monthly Dovetail Fishing League on Fishing Sim World which is a bit like the tournaments in Bassmaster Fishing 2022 and I’m pretty consistently top 3 every month. I think the Dovetail Fishing League has probably helped in some small ways but tournaments in Bassmaster are a lot more fun especially when you spot a lunker in the underwater camera. Will it or won’t it bite!? Benjamin - How do you prepare for online tournaments? Sw1fty - I prepare for online tournaments by spending as much time as I can out on the lake the event is being held on. I spend this time looking for hotspots, named legendary fish and trying to work out what setup is going work best once I find a location I like. I also will speak to other players in the community that do well on the game for their feedback and trade information. *Benjamin - What did winning the 2022 Online Bassmaster Classic mean to you? * Sw1fty - It meant a lot to me as it was the first online cross-platform tournament held on the game. That's special as there will only ever be one first tournament. Benjamin - During the events if things aren’t going well, what do you do to adapt and start catching lunkers? Sw1fty - It’s simple really I have a number of hotspots I use that are usually close together, I'll just move to a new spot until I land a big fish. There is no point sticking to one spot hoping it will get better if you aren’t catching fish. Benjamin - What’s your go-to loadout for big bass? Sw1fty - I always use a size 4/0 hook on a Jighead, drop-shot or any other hook type that allows for soft-plastics. The lures I use are the Jenko Fishing 7-inch Tremor Shad and the 8-inch Booty Shaker. Big lures catch big bass! Benjamin - What advice would you give someone thinking about taking part in a tournament for the first time? Sw1fty - Just give it a go. Don’t be worried and just have fun. Also as I stated earlier, don't be afraid to ask others for help, get onto Twitch and other streaming platforms, watch how people tackle the event, and learn from them. Benjamin - What advice would you give to players who have their sights set on winning one of our online tournaments? Sw1fty - Make sure you put the hours in before the tournament, the more the better. But don't be disheartened if you don't win, just have fun and aim for a top 25% finish that's still an awesome achievement. Benjamin - You live stream all your attempts on Twitch, where can people tune in to watch and learn? Sw1fty - You can find me on Twitch by searching for Sw1fty_8_6_TTV. Hope to see you there, tight lines to you all, and good luck in your fishing journey. Benjamin - Thanks for your time Sw1fty and good luck in the Lake Seminole Open Series Event taking place between May 6 - 23.

Lake Seminole Open Series Event: May 6 - 23
It's time for the first Online Open Series event at Lake Seminole! The Open Series has started and ends after a Championship Weekend on May 23. Do you have what it takes to be crowned the first Online Open Series winner? There’s only one way to find out and that’s out on the water. What is Lake Seminole Online Open Series? Today, May 6 players across all platforms will be competing against each other in a 3-round tournament to see who will be crowned the first Lake Seminole Online Open Series winner! The competition follows official Bassmaster rules, meaning the combined weight of your top 5 weight bass (Largemouth and Spotted) will be added to the leader board. Round 1 has started and will run till May 12. Round 2 will kick off at 00:00 PST/08:00 UTC May 13 to May 19 Round 3, like the other rounds, will start at 00:00 PST/08:00 UTC on May 20 and will end on May 23 00:00 PST/08:00 UTC. As Lake Seminole is a DLC venue that comes included in the Bass Lake Bundle, all players who own the Bass Lake Bundle will be eligible for 3 attempts per round. If you do not own the Bass Lake Bundle you can still take part and will have 1 attempt per round to post the highest total weight possible. Eeach attempt gives you 60 minutes out on the water, so use that time wisely! Your attempt will end when the timer hits 0:00. If you need to/want to you can suspend your attempt and return to it later, you can do this via the pause menu. Hit “Submit”, then “Pause Attempt”. Just make sure you complete your attempts before the round ends. The winner will be the player who has the highest total weight over the 3 rounds. An update has gone live to bring some changes to Lake Seminole for the competition, these changes are as follows: * The population of Largemouth Bass and Spotted Bass has been increased. * Balancing to the chances of catching BIG bass has reduced while the chance of catching small to medium size bass has been increased. * The population of Black Crappie, White Crappie, Bluegill, Blue Catfish, Flathead Catfish, Channel Catfish, Chain Pickerel, and Longnose Gar has been reduced. To compete in the event from the main menu click on Bassmaster Online. How is the Online Open Series different from the Online Elite events? Firstly, they run for longer! Our Elite events last 10 days with Round 1 being 7 days, Round 2 being 2 days and Round 3 being 1 day – whilst our Open Series events run for 17 days with Rounds 1 and 2 lasting 7 days, and the final round giving players 3 days to complete their attempts. Whereas with the Online Elite events, we want to encapsulate the intensity and fierce competition of the real-world Bassmaster Elite, including culminating in a Championship Sunday, the Open Series events are less time-pressured, which allow for you to manage your attempts more easily. This doesn't mean that it's any more relaxed though! The overall format is the same between the competitions, and winning will feel just as sweet! Rewards The only other difference is the in-game reward structure. Open Series events will have 2 rewards up for grabs. A participation jersey and a winner’s jersey. Keep scrolling for a look at them! The Lake Seminole Online Open Series event has started, get out there, find your hot spots, and fine-tune your load-outs to tackle the competition! See you on the lake, anglers!
