Due to impending hurricane conditions and in the best interest of all concerned, BASS has rescheduled the CITGO Bassmaster Southern Open on Lake Tohopekaliga in Kissimmee, Fla., originally scheduled for Oct. 27-29.
The event now is planned for Nov. 17-19 at the same location.
Hurricane Wilma is expected to significantly impact the state of Florida, home to many of the anglers fishing the Southern Open. Lake Toho is in Central Florida.
Any anglers who cannot fish the rescheduled tournament will be refunded their entry fees if requested by close of business Friday, Oct. 28.
Lake Tohopekaliga is the site of the 2006 CITGO Bassmaster Classic, Feb.24-26, 2006. Because of the Southern Open rescheduling, the lake will now be off limits to Classic anglers beginning Nov. 21.
