Notice: Tournament Rescheduled for July 17, 18, and 19th

The Arkansas Big Bass Bonanza, the state’s largest amateur big bass tournament, has been rescheduled for the weekend of July 17-19, tournament officials announced today, citing excessive water flows on the Arkansas River.

The on-line registration will end at midnight Wednesday, July 15th. This will ensure your official tournament weigh in card will be with the weigh master at the pool you choose.

Friday July 10th will be the last day we mail the official registration/weigh card packages out to people who register on-line. Your registration/weigh in card will be with the weighmaster at the pool you have chosen. You may pick it up before you go out or when you come to weigh in your first fish. 

Remember you may register on tournament days at official weigh-in sites. Only cash payments will be accepted at weigh-in sites.
