Pipkens Makes “Weekend Cut” at Palatka

Pipkens Makes “Weekend Cut” at Palatka

The first Elite Series event got off to a rough start with days 1 and 2 getting postponed due to high winds and a small craft advisory. This left the anglers to fish full field on Saturday and Sunday and top 20 would fish on Monday. Although bummed that they didn’t start on time, Pipkens had a positive attitude. “I made my first weekend cut!” he said jokingly, since everyone would be fishing the weekend versus top 40 on day 3 and top 12 on day 4. On his off days, Pipkens spent time with family and fishing on a nearby lake that was not connected to tournament waters.

Pipkens Kicks Off 2020: Eastern Open at Lake Toho

Let the fishing begin! Off season came and went, and the 2020 fishing season is already upon us. For some, it won’t start until the beginning of February, but the Bassmaster Opens had its first tournament mid January (15th to 17th) in which Pipkens is competing. This tournament, a part of the Eastern Opens series, took place at the Kissimmee Chain, specifically Lake Toho, in Florida. Pipkens is competing in all four of the Bassmaster Eastern Opens this year, as well as the Bassmaster Elite Series which begins at the beginning of February back in Florida.
