CENTRAL MISSISSIPPI — The Ross Barnett Reservoir will be the first stop on the Bass Anglers Sportsman Society’s Central Open Series in 2015.

The tournament dates are March 12-14 and the event is expected to draw in excess of 300 professional anglers and amateurs.

A Bassmasters tournament was held the Barnett Reservoir in 2013.

BASS officials say the Barnett Reservoir has a long history with the organization including a 1978 Bassmaster Classic won by Bobby Murray and most recently, Randall Tharp won the 2013 Central Open 3.
