RIDGEDALE, Mo. (May 24, 2017) – The 6th annual Toyota Bonus Bucks Owners event will return to the unparalleled rustic elegance of the Bass Pro Outdoor Academy and Long Creek Marina at Table Rock Lake in Southwest Missouri on Oct. 14-15, 2017.
Saturday evening’s registration meeting and free dinner will take place again at the Bass Pro Outdoor Academy, with launch and weigh-in a very short distance down Missouri’s Highway 86 at Long Creek Marina and Boat Ramp.
Fast becoming one of the most popular customer appreciation bass tournaments in America, teams travel from a wide variety of states ranging from Arizona to Maine, to the sprawling 41,000-acre reservoir near Branson that offers a wide variety of fishing patterns in late October.
The husband and wife team of Michael and Shana Perez traveled only one hour from their Missouri home, but had one of the more memorable times.
“We had just purchased our 2016 Tundra weeks before the tournament,” says Michael. “When we heard the event was coming to Table Rock, we signed up just before the deadline, and while we didn’t catch enough for a tournament paycheck, we won $500 in a random drawing and were made to feel really part of the Toyota fishing family.”
All eligible registered Bonus Bucks participants are invited to participate and register a team for the Owners Tournament, with the exception of Bassmaster Elite Series and Walmart FLW Tour pros. Only one of the team members must be registered in the Bonus Bucks Program to be eligible to compete.
The top 30 teams are guaranteed a paycheck. A free gift bag will be given to the first 200 anglers to sign up for the tournament, and all teams will have a chance to visit with Team Toyota and Bassmaster Elite Series pros who will be on hand to help with the event.
Anglers are required to pre-register by Oct. 6, 2017. B.A.S.S. tournament staff will conduct the tournament, and be on-site Saturday afternoon October 14 at 4:00 p.m. CDT for official angler check-in at Bass Pro Shops Outdoor Academy near Big Cedar Resort in Ridgedale, Mo.
Participants are encouraged to sign up as soon as possible for this fellowship-filled, prize-rich event. Limited space is available. To register, visit toyotafishing.com. You can also call Kendell at (918) 742-6424, or email: [email protected].
