Oceanside, Calif. – The third event in Hobie’s new elite-level kayak tournament trail, the Hobie Bass Open Series (B.O.S.), on Kentucky Lake, Saturday, May 18 and Sunday, May 19, was a success on many levels. Sponsored by the Kentucky Lake Convention and Visitors Bureau and Calvert City and hosted by Kentucky Dam Village, the event saw participants catch an extraordinary number of bass during the two days.

“Anytime in a kayak tournament when you have over 100 anglers it really elevates the payout, the notoriety of the event, and there’s obviously a higher level of competition. With so many incredible anglers in this event a top ten finish was a respected, difficult feat,” says tournament director, AJ McWhorter.
