Bassmaster Elite Event at St. Johns River Updates Key Details

Apr 03, 2024

MAXAM Tire, a global leader in specialty tire manufacturing, has signed on as the title sponsor for the final event of the 2024 Elite season’s Sunshine State swing. The 2024 MAXAM Tire Bassmaster Elite at St. Johns River will be held April 18-21 in Palatka, Fla.

“We are absolutely thrilled to enter into the exciting world of Bassmaster as a title sponsor in 2024,” said Jimmy McDonnell, VP of Sales & Marketing at MAXAM Tire. “At MAXAM Tire, we are excited to align ourselves with a sport that holds a special place in the hearts of so many hardworking individuals, especially our valued customers. Just like anglers who tirelessly pursue their passion on the water, we are dedicated to delivering top-notch performance and reliability in our products. This partnership is not just about supporting an incredible sport, but also celebrating the dedication and determination that reflect our core values.”

2024 will mark the 25th time a major B.A.S.S. event has been held on the St. Johns River — a quintessential Florida fishery that features vast shoreline cover, big Florida-strain largemouth and breathtaking scenery with Spanish moss-covered trees, alligators and manatees. When the Elites last visited the St. Johns in 2022, veteran angler John Crews claimed his second blue trophy with a four-day total of 75 pounds, 4 ounces.

Live coverage of all four days of the MAXAM Tire Bassmaster Elite at St. Johns River starts Thursday, April 18 on, Tubi and the FOX Sports digital platforms. FS1 will also broadcast live with the tournament leaders beginning at 7:30 a.m. ET Saturday and 8 a.m. Sunday.
