I would like to make a statement to BASS, my sponsors Waterfront Bay, Lakeland Limited, Triton Boats, Mercury Marine, Motorguide, St. Croix Rods, Humminbird, Power Pole, Hydrowave, Amphibia eyewear, Optimum Baits, Reins tungsten, Ima Lures, Hog Farmer Tackle, Bass Mafia, and Omega Custom Tackle and my fans that I will not be returning to the elite series in 2016. I have experienced many highlight during my 8 years with BASS and appreciate the opportunity I've had to fish the elite series. I'm proud of my accomplishments over the past 8 years but feel that its time for me to pursue other opportunities in fishing including my guide business on lake Guntersville. I'll still be involved in tournament fishing and possibly try to return to the elite series if the opportunity would arise, but for now I feel its time to go a different direction. My biggest thanks go out to my family, friends and fans for supporting and cheering me on during my career with the elites. You can still follow me on face book, instagram and my website ( to keep up with what I'm doing or book a trip on lake Guntersville for some of the best bass fishing in the country! My sincere thanks and good fishing to all.

Derek Remitz laughs when he says he’d like to see the Bassmaster Elite Series begin each year on Watts Bar Lake and then hop-scotch down through the Tennessee River fisheries before finally finishing on Kentucky Lake.

He laughs, but he’s only half joking. >> read more

Derek Remitz Fishing

Just got back from the first Bassmaster Elite Series tournament of the season at the Sabine River in Orange, TX. It was a tough tournament with crazy fishing and crazy weather. But I managed to finish 42nd and start the season off on the right foot. Looking forward to another week off and then go hit the water hard on my home lake for the second stop of the year on Lake Guntersville.
