BASS' history on Lake Amistad is a short but glorious one. Elite Series pros will be looking forward to this Battle on the Border. Ish Monroe won the first Elite Series event ever on Amistad in 2006 with an astounding 104 pounds, 8 ounces. 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.
High winds and rough water cut the 2008 event short by a day and prevented any 100-pound catches, but the century mark should be back within reach now.
