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.
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.
