Mullins makes the Elite Series cut

MOUNT CARMEL —  Mount Carmel bass pro David Mullins has qualified for the 2014 Bassmaster Elite Series.

 Mullins punched his ticket to the prestigious bass fishing series with his fifth-place finish in the  2013 Bass Pro Shops  Bassmaster Southern Open Series.

The top five pros from each of the three BPS series  —  which also includes the Northern and Central  — are eligible for the Elite field the following year.

Mullins, who had 468 points for the three-event 2013 season, took second in the Southern Open event on Douglas Lake in April. A win there  would have cemented an appearance in the 2014 Bassmaster Classic.
