Oakley Back on Big Bass Tour
The Oakley Big Bass Tour fall schedule kicks off in Texas with the Kelly Jordon Big Bass Classic on Lake Conroe, September 22nd and 23rd. Drought conditions earlier in the year kept the tour from visiting Conroe but the lake has recovered well and the fall fishing is starting to heat up. Look for some big fish to cross the scales at Papas on the Lake and don't be surprised if it takes a double digit bass to win this event.
From Texas the Tour heads east to Lake Murray in South Carolina, September 27th and 28th for the Jason Williamson Big Bass Classic. This is the Tour's first visit to the "Jewel of South Carolina" and the lake shouldn't disappoint. Early registration for this event has been strong and anglers from 6 different states have already made plans to compete on Lake Murray.
The Tour takes a week off after the Lake Murray event and heads to one of the nation's best bass fisheries for the 2nd Annual Gerald Swindle Big Bass Classic on Lake Guntersville, October 13th and 14th. Last year's tournament saw anglers from 10 different states converge on Guntersville to take their shot at the Toyota Tundra grand prize. The frog bite should be on in mid-October and the weigh in stage at the State Park should feature some big fish.
Up next is the Rusty Wallace Big Bass Classic on Douglas Lake, October 20th and 21st. This first annual event named for the NASCAR legend and long-time Oakley athlete promises to be one of the best of the fall. Bass Pro Shops in Sevierville will host a meet and greet with Rusty Wallace on Thursday October 18th and the tournament will be held at The Point Resort and Marina in Dandridge.
The final fall event of the 2012 season is the Georgia Big Bass Classic, October 27th and 28th on Clarks Hill. Fall fishing should be strong on this 71,000 acre monster. Look for the bass to be schooling and the topwater bite to come into play as anglers will compete for the Nitro Z7 grand prize.
The Oakley Big Bass Tour is the nation's premier open big bass tournament series designed exclusively for amateur anglers. We provide anglers of all skill levels an exciting tournament format and event experience on some of the nation's best bass fisheries.
