2014 Lake Erie Open Bass Tournament - Nov 8Th


Recommended Posts

As the Niagara Open will no longer be run we are excited to announce that the St. Catharines Bassmasters will be starting an open event on lake Erie to fill this void.

The tournament is open to all, not just OBN members.

Please note that blast off will be in the order that entry form and payments are received. Payment secures you spot, not just the entry form. As we are capping the field to 40 boats we encourage all to sign up in advance. Deadline for payment via check is Oct 24th, all entries after this date must be paid via cash. A list of entrants will be kept up to date on BigFatBass.

Tournament date is set for Saturday November 8th, if the lake is blown off it will be moved to Sunday November 9th. “IF” the lake is blown off again on November 9th as determined by the tournament director,then the event will be moved to the Upper Niagara River (Launch site TBC) and the Lake will be determined closed or open and boundaries set. Safety of boaters will be priority. If due to extreme weather conditions the entire event must be cancelled, full refunds will be given to competitors paid in full prior to the event.

Looking forward to seeing everyone there.
