Bass Pro Shops Big Bass Tour, the nations premier amateur big bass tournament series, returns to Smith Mountain Lake on April 26th -28 th.
Enjoy an exciting weekend of angling on beautiful Smith Mountain Lake "Jewel of the Blue Ridge" featuring over 500 miles of shoreline and 22,000 acres of water. Unlike traditional bass fishing tournaments where anglers weigh in five bass at the end of the day, the Bass Pro Shops/Cabela’s Big Bass Tour provides amateur anglers from all skill levels the opportunity to win multiple cash payouts each day during the hourly weigh-ins. Each tournament day features seven hourly weigh-ins that pay ten cash payouts each hour. That means each three day event offers a total of 210 hourly cash payouts. The angler with the overall biggest bass of the event will also win the Grand Prize of a brand new, fully rigged Nitro Z19 powered by Mercury 200HP. Anglers may only enter one bass per hourly weigh-in.
