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.

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!


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!
