The 5th Annual no-entry-fee Toyota Bonus Bucks Owners Tournament will be held October 22 & 23, 2016 at one of bass fishing’s most tradition rich reservoirs, Table Rock Lake, surrounded by autumn’s stellar colors in the gorgeous Ozark Mountains of Southwestern Missouri.
The rustic elegance of the Bass Pro Outdoor Academy near Big Cedar Lodge will serve as registration headquarters, with launch and weigh-in taking place nearby at Long Creek Boat Ramp.
Fast becoming one of the most popular customer appreciation bass tournaments in America, this centrally located edition of the Bonus Bucks Team Event is sure to attract passionate bass anglers from a wide variety of states to the sprawling 41,000 acre reservoir near Branson that will offer a wide variety of fishing patterns in late October.
Bonus Bucks members Wayne and Lyn England provided greatest proof of the event’s goodness last year when they drove 34 hours from their home in New England to Toledo Bend Reservoir. Four less-than-weighty bass later, the Englands enjoyed a trip across the B.A.S.S. stage, ate a free lunch courtesy of Toyota, and began the 34-hour trek from Louisiana back to New Hampshire.
“It was a blast. The tournament was so well run, the pros were awesome to talk to, it was all great,” says Wayne. “I’d drive that far all over again to attend another Bonus Bucks Tournament.”
All eligible registered Bonus Bucks participants are invited to participate and register a team for the Owners Tournament, with the exception of Bassmaster Elite Series and Walmart FLW Tour pros. Only one of the team members must be registered in the Bonus Bucks Program to be eligible to compete.
The top 30 teams are guaranteed a paycheck. A free gift bag will be given to the first 200 anglers to sign up for the tournament, and all teams will have a chance to visit with Team Toyota and Bassmaster Elite Series pros who will be on hand to help with the event.
Anglers are required to pre-register by October 17, 2016. B.A.S.S. tournament staff will conduct the tournament, and be onsite Saturday afternoon October 22nd at 4:00 p.m. for official angler check-in at Bass Pro Shops Outdoor Academy near Big Cedar Resort in Ridgedale, MO.
Participants are encouraged to sign up as soon as possible for this fellowship-filled, prize-rich event. Limited space is available. To register, please call Kendell at (918) 742-6424, or email: [email protected]. Online registration will also be coming soon at toyotafishing.com.
