Hobie Bass Open & Fishing Festival



The Hobie Bass Open is a catch, photograph and release (CPR) tournament where anglers measure and photograph their top three bass during each of the two days, to be scored by total aggregate length. Eligible species include largemouth, spotted and smallmouth bass on human powered kayaks. 100% of entry fees are paid out with a ratio of one place for every 10 entrants. There will be raffles and prizes as well as other awards including one for the biggest bass each day. In addition, the 1st and 2nd place finishers will qualify for the 6th Hobie Fishing World Championship. Along with the prize money, the winner will have their airfare, accommodations and entry fee covered courtesy of Kentucky Dam Village and Hobie Cat Company. A Hobie Fun Fest consumer event will be held simultaneously off the Kentucky Dam beach. Hobie invites all competitors as well as the general public to bring their family and friends and join in the festivities that will be held Saturday and Sunday, June 4-5, 2016. Fun seekers will have the opportunity to demo Hobie Islands, kayaks and SUP’s.
