The Bassmaster Elite Series has added Anderson's Green Pond Landing on Hartwell Lake to their tournament list next Spring.

The Green Pond event, set for April 4-7, is new for the Elite Series slate, but very familiar to many anglers on the circuit. Hartwell has hosted five major B.A.S.S. events, including three Classics. This year’s Classic was held on the lake in mid-March and drew more than 143,000 fans — a record for the "Super Bowl of Bass Fishing."

“We are beyond excited here in Anderson County to be hosting the Bassmaster Elite Series at Lake Hartwell and Green Pond Landing,” said Neil Paul, executive director of Visit Anderson. “To be able to host the Elite Series on the heels of the most-attended Bassmaster Classic of all time is a tremendous honor for our community. We look forward to providing a great experience to the best anglers in the world, the team at B.A.S.S. and the multitude of passionate fans of bass fishing.”
