BASS' history on Lake Amistad is a short but glorious one. Elite Series pros will be looking forward to the Battle on the Border, April 10-13. Ish Monroe won the first Elite Series event ever on Amistad in 2006 with an astounding 104-8. That tournament not only kicked off BASS' new tournament series with a bang but added Monroe and Fred Roumbanis to the 100-pound-club that previously was the exclusive province of Dean Rojas.
A year later, four more Elite anglers joined the Century Club, including Derek Remitz, who won with 111-7. Whereas Monroe caught many of his best bass by sight fishing, Remitz worked deep water with a jig for his catch. In 2007, the bass were mostly prespawners. Next year, the spawn could be at its peak or mostly over.
