The Lady Bass Anglers Association will return during the 2017 season to Russellville, Arkansas’ beautiful Lake Dardanelle for the WILDCARD event. Two anglers in each division who are the highest finshing anglers not yet qualified for the Lady Bass Classic will qualify from this event to the Lady Bass Classic! 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.

The angler in each division with the largest combined two day weight will be awarded the top cash prize for her division. 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.
