Hobie Bass Open Series 2022

Wolf and Fox Rivers, Appleton WI

The eighth stop of the Hobie Bass Open Series Anchored by Power-Pole, takes us to brand new river systems in a familiar state to our series.  The Wolf and Fox rivers are prominent rivers in Wisconsin, that flow in and out of the state’s most notable lakes and bays.  Our anglers will be able to spread out over many miles of these rivers, navigating new waters and working towards the culmination of the 2022 season. Anglers should prepare to fish in a variety of different ways, as these systems and boundaries have a wide variety of opportunities and both largemouth and smallmouth present.

A maximum capacity of 200 Anglers will be competing for a cash payout to 10% of the field, and the top 3 non- qualified anglers will earn their spot in the 2022 Tournament of Champions (TOC) on Caddo Lake Nov 11-13 in Shreveport- Bossier City, LA.

The TOC is a 3- day, 50 Angler championship with a $100,000 payout guarantee.

If maximum capacity is reached anglers can email BOS@Hobie.com to get on the official wait list.

All anglers entering will have a chance to win a 2022 Hobie Outback in custom Orange and Black ‘BOS Camo’ color way. In addition to the Outback, every angler registered will be eligible to win a Torqeedo 1103 Ultralight motor.  Along with many other prizes that will be randomly given away from our sponsors.
