Dec. 17. The 2021 Bassmaster Opens comes back in 2021, a little later than usual, but back nevertheless. Lake Norman is on deck Sept. 23-25.

Since the 2020 schedule was pushed back by the COVID-19 pandemic, it didn’t finish until the first week of December. As a result, the 2021 schedule begins in March instead of the traditional January start date.
