Hobie Bass Open Series 2024

 

The 6th season of the Hobie Bass Open Series in on!  Lets GO!!!

Round 3 of the Hobie BOS will visit one of the most versatile fisheries in Alabama; Lake Logan Martin! This Coosa River chain is known for its unique fishing offerings and native black bass species, the Coosa Spot.   Not to be outdone, the Largemouth have been known to be major players on this fishery as well.  Mixing ample cover, docks, current and a time of year where fish move shallow, this one is bound to be a shootout and should be a fun and refreshing visit back to Alabama at this new to our series, lake and community!

We encourage anglers to check, maintain and prepare their equipment prior to arriving.  There are many dealers on the way that you can check with.  If you are on-site and need anything, contact Dugout Bait and Tackle or Bucks Island and they should be able to take care of you with any products you may need for a wide range of brands/ products.

Our event Hobie parts will arrive later on Thursday.  We are limited on what we will have. In addition, Hobie staff will no longer be able to offer any repairs tournament week, only supplies to help get you back on the water.
