The 2018 Bassmaster Elite Series went to a brand new stop, Lake Oahe in South Dakota. The Berkley Bassmaster Elite presented by Abu Garcia was the 7th stop of the 2018 season.
Mark Daniels Jr. took a two-pronged approach to catching Lake Oahe's smallmouth. One was a dropshot and the other was a ned rig.
Mark Daniels Jr. led Days 2, 3 &4 at Lake Oahe and took the title after four days of competition in South Dakota with 69 lbs, 9 ounces.
Josh Bertrand and Justin Lucas break down the key baits they used to dropshot in the Berkley Bassmaster Elite presented by Abu Garcia at Lake Oahe.
Josh Bertrand knew his fish hadn't left his areas and after experimentation he hooked up with a big fish on a spy bait on his first cast with it.
Josh Bertrand landed a four pounder after numerous smaller keepers and made an important upgrade.
Casey Ashley landed his first fish of Day 3 and it was a 5 pound smallmouth.
