Tavares, Fla. — The Bassmaster Classic, Feb. 24-26, is only about a month away, but the 2012 Bassmaster Tournament Trail actually kicks off in Jan. 19-21 with the first Bass Pro Shops Bassmaster Southern Open of the year. It should be a good one, too, as anglers from as far away as Italy gather in Tavares, Fla., to cure their cabin fever at the Harris Chain of Lakes.




The Harris Chain is made up of nine lakes connected by a system of canals and covering around 80,000 surface acres. Lakes Harris, Eustis and Griffin are the largest of the waters, but anglers often find as much success in the canals as in the lakes themselves. Just ask Shaw Grigsby, who mined one particular canal to the tune of a six-figure Elite Series payday last March.




Elite Series pro Chris Lane believes that canals can be a factor in this Open, too, but doesn’t expect weights to be on par with the spawn-heavy Elite event.




“I think this thing is going to be wide open,” Lane said. “This time around it’ll be more prespawn, but there may be a few fish on beds. However, the cold weather and early (not full) moon may have them holding off. Eustis, Harris and the canals will be the big players lake-wise, I think.”



It’s hard to imagine a better way to kick off the new season.
