Kenora's Jeff Gustafson is in day one of the Dovetail Games Bassmaster Elite at Sabine River in Texas.

He enters the tournament after a tough go in March in the Guaranteed Rate Bassmaster Elite at Pickwick Lake, where he placed 86th. Before that, Gussy won his first ever career Elite Series victory in February at the  2021 Guaranteed Rate Bassmaster Elite Series event at Tennessee River. 

Weighs ins for today will take place at 3:00 p.m. CST, with the tournament wrapping up Sunday afternoon.

The Bassmaster Elite Series is the highest level of professional bass fishing tournaments. Competitors must qualify for the series through the Bass Pro Shops Bassmaster Opens or the B.A.S.S. Nation, and anglers who are already on the Elite Series must re-qualify each year by maintaining enough points throughout the season. The pro anglers compete all season for the opportunity to win points toward the Toyota Bassmaster Angler of the Year award and to qualify for the Bassmaster Classic in Lake Ray Roberts in Fort Worth Texas on June 11, 2021.
