Takahiro Omori led Days 2, 3 and 4 to win the first Bassmaster Elite Series event of 2018. With 59 pounds, 8 ounces he wins the Bassmaster Elite Series presented by Econolodge at Lake Martin.
The 2018 Bassmaster Elite Series season started at Lake Martin and it featured numerous milestones. Jason Christie hit $1 million in BASS earnings, Takahiro won his 7th event and surpassed $2 million and Gary Klein fished his 400th Bass event.
At Lake Martin numerous anglers caught fish that bit right beside the boat. A good lesson during the year when fish are feeding heavily (prespawn, shad spawn, topwater, fall) is to fish your bait all the way to the boat before calling it quits.
