Exposed Season 3 Release Dates

the toughest tournament the Elite Series has ever been to

The first three episodes in the series follow professional anglers Dennis Tietje, Charlie Hartley, and Bassmaster Classic World Champion Takahiro Omori during the official practice days leading up to last year's Bassmaster Elite Series Sabine River Challenge. The three pros reveal their secrets and strategies as they study and dissect the patterns on the 510 mile Sabine River. The 2013 Sabine River Challenge was the first professional tournament B.A.S.S. ever held on the Sabine River, a waterway that makes up much of the Texas and Louisiana border.

The first of the three episodes of Exposed Season 3 follows Louisiana native Dennis Tietje, who came back to pro action after taking a year off due to a back injury. The pro, who also has worn the hat of crawfish farmer and local river guide, takes fans along as he studies and explains waters that he calls home. Familiar with these waters, Tietje predicted that the Sabine River Challenge would be “the toughest tournament the Elite Series has ever been to.”

In the second episode of Season 3 of Exposed, pro angler Charlie Hartley teaches “location, location, location,” using his pre-scouting to narrow down a few good locations he could study intensively during practice days. Hartley spent day two of practice with his hooks covered, feeling out bites and estimating the size of bass that bit by how the fish attacked the bait. While Hartley explains that this skill comes from fishing on a daily basis, he does offer several key secrets for estimating the size of bass without having to hook the bass and bring the catch into the boat.

In the third episode of Season 3 of Exposed, world champion Takahiro Omori, who was working under the time pressure of the final practice day of the tournament, explains, “The number one key to finding fish is you got to keep moving. Never stop, never slow down until you find the fish.” As much as Omori wanted to shake off many of his bites during the final practice day, he chose to pull in several to check their size. In the end, he explained that a successful tournament would mean he would need approach some of his tournament time on the move, as if he were still on practice days.

All three professional anglers, who are making their first Exposed appearances with the Season 3 debut, employed varying techniques and tactics that ultimately resulted in successful competition. All three pros placed high enough at the Sabine River Challenge to make the cut and bring home cash prizes.
