Event Info


The 6th season of the Hobie Bass Open Series in on!  Let’s GO!!!

Round 6 of the Hobie BOS will take us back to the Finger Lakes region of New York of Cayuga Lake.  A visit last year saw awesome catches and totals.  Anglers expressed a high desire to return, and we heard you!  A few weeks earlier this year should allow the smallmouth bass fishing to really be showcased as last year the largemouth really stole the show. With ample shoreline, emerging vegetation and world- class pedigree, this event is one you will not want to miss!  Let’s show off in the Northeast!
