Event Info

The Hobie Bass Open Series is a national kayak fishing tournament series that provides a platform for anglers to compete in an elite 2-day event in one of several locations across the USA targeting bass. Anglers fish for large cash payouts, sponsored prizes, and Angler of the Year points which all culminate at the Tournament of Champions at the end of the season where 50 anglers battle it out for large cash payouts! Events are open to any angler aged 16 years or older and all brands of kayaks are welcome. Aside from the competition, each Hobie Bass Open Series event is fun and the comradery between anglers is part of what makes our community great. We encourage you to come out and fish with us and we hope to see YOU on top of the winners podium this year.

This stop of the Hobie BOS takes us to the central region of the country and into the Natural State.  The famed section of the Arkansas River is known as Lake Dardanelle and is host to many top professional tournaments each season.  A diverse fishery where current and vegetation will play, anglers will have their work cut out for them as we begin the transition from summer to fall patterns.  Anglers will be competing for a cash payout of 10% of the field, and the top 3 non- qualified anglers will earn their spot in our Tournament of Champions this November in Knoxville, TN.  Many random giveaway prizes will be awarded as well.

The winners of Hobie BOS – Lake Dardanelle Anchored by Power-Pole Total Boat Control
For the first time we have a tie for 1st place between Drew Gregory and Eric Siddiqi; Hobie BOS rules state that the tie breaker is the largest fish. Drew nabbed two of the largest fish in the tournament including the Bassin Magazine Big Bass of the tournament a 21.00″. What a finale!
Amongst the top spots in 3rd is Jody Queen who has now overtaken the lead in the Angler of the Year race! Only to jump one step of Rus Snyders who ended in 4th. You could not make have a crazier end to the season. There is only one more main event left on the Coosa River and there is so much more on the line.
In 5th place Justin Patrick brought in a 159.25″ two day limit to raise himself up from 7th. Consistency was the name of the name as others fell down the leaderboard, Justin stuck to the fish that gave him a coveted spot at the Tournament of Champions.
