Entry fees for pro-anglers is $500 and for co-anglers is $250. Entry deadline to avoid late fee is August 15, 2017. This event is hosted by the Russellville Tourism and Visitor’s Center.

This two day pro/am event will have pro-anglers will be competing to bring in the heaviest 5 fish limit comprised of any combination of largemouth, smallmouth, or spotted bass.

One angler will also be awarded a $500 Big Bass cash prize for the biggest bass of the tournament. Cash payouts in each division will be paid to every 1 in 5 anglers registering for the tournament.
