Event Info

The Hobie Bass Open once again returns for its seventh straight year to Kentucky Lake! This is where it all started for the series as a single annual event, and we’re excited to bring the series back to crown a new champion of Kentucky Lake! Following tradition, this year’s champion will qualify to compete in the most prestigious international kayak fishing tournament in the world, the Hobie Fishing Worlds 10, plus take home a large check and some awesome prizes Cash and prizes from our amazing sponsors will be awarded to many anglers, whether it’s in the form of a top finish or out of pure luck in our raffle.

Kentucky and Barkley Lakes are the culmination of two of the biggest and most notable river systems in the southeast offering deep and shallow water fishing opportunities for anglers, especially this time of year. Anglers can catch Largemouth, Smallmouth and Kentucky Spotted Bass on both fisheries with plenty of opportunities to catch personal best trophies.

This year, due to COVID-19 and the threat of the coronavirus, the logistics of the event will be different compared previous years. For the safety of our competitors, and everyone involved with the event, we will have no official meetings or gatherings, but instead everything will be run digitally. We ask that anglers do not gather in large groups after hours and respect the precautions we as a community are having to take in order to allow this event to happen. We will have more information and guidelines for how we have to operate during this time coming soon, including a mandatory COVID-19 waiver that all participants will need to read and sign. This event will be a model for how events will be run during this pandemic and we are relying on staff, volunteers, and our anglers to showcase that we CAN still have these events all over the country, within our format.

We can’t wait to crown a new champion, qualify another angler for Hobie Worlds and most importantly get back to hosting competitive events for our amazing anglers.
