“Doing something different” mattered big-time at the Hobie® Bass Open Series on Lake Shasta

Oceanside, CA (March 13, 2019) – The second tournament of their new elite-level kayak series, the Hobie Bass Open Series (B.O.S.), on Lake Shasta, California, this past Saturday, March 9, and Sunday, March 10, was a success on many levels. Sponsored by Headwaters Adventures, the local Hobie dealer in Redding, California, and the U.S. Forest Service, the event saw participants catch an extraordinary number of spotted, largemouth, and smallmouth bass during the two days. The event was an equal opportunity event operated under special use permit with the Shasta-Trinity National Forest.

“Of 64 registered anglers all 64 fished the event. It was a two-day tournament and and anglers were allowed five fish each day, any combination of largemouth, smallmouth, and spotted bass, and iAngler was facilitated the leaderboard, judging, etc. for the real-time tournament,” says Lake Shasta Bass Hobie Open Series tournament director, Bryan Rusk.


Tournament winner Greg Blanchard says he caught every single fish of the tournament on a jig — “something a little different from what everyone else was doing” Photo by Steve Carrell.
