Event Info

Visit Anderson SC

The 5th stop of the Hobie Bass Open Series Anchored by Power-Pole, takes us to Anderson, South Carolina on Lake Hartwell.  A perennial powerhouse of a fishery with an amazing host; this is a destination of tournament and recreational anglers from all over the country. A Blueback Herring lake full of big Largemouth and Spotted bass, anglers can expect to see plenty of fish action and potential for big limits. This time of year we expect great water conditions and even better weather making this event one you won’t want to miss.

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 on Lake Eufaula in Eufaula, AL.  Many random giveaway prizes will be awarded as well.

Event Headquarters: Hilton Garden Inn Anderson; 115 Destination Blvd Anderson, SC 29621

Event Boundaries:

The entire lake will be eligible for this event, Georgia and South Carolina waters are in play.  Dams will be considered the physical boundaries up all three tributaries (Chattooga River below Yonah dam, Keowee River and Little River below the Keowee Dam) down to Hartwell dam. Anglers must launch at a legal and public access.

Portaging is not legal.  Anglers must be able to pedal/ paddle in and out of an area at all water levels for the area to be considered legal.

For questions on legal areas, launches and boundaries we ask you to utilize the Farwide App.  A free app that is your gateway to the outdoors and your best source for learning access on a waterway.

South Carolina and Georgia have a reciprocal agreement on Lake Hartwell and the Chattooga River.  Anglers must have a valid fishing license in the waters they are fishing to be legal for this event.

We will be sharing the water with the Queen City Kayak Bass Fishing club.  They are hosting a single day event on Saturday and have mirrored BOS rules for simplicity to encourage many anglers to double dip.  Please check out their Facebook and event page for more details.

Hobie BOS uses Metal Ketch Board Only. Boards will be checked at the Drive- thru.

Please register early so we can communicate with you on any updates and changes for the event as we get closer.
