Alhonna Buddy Bass Fishing Tournament

October 26-27, 2024

Twice a year, Alhonna Resort is host to an “open buddy bass” tournament. The Early Bird Tournament, held the last full weekend in March, offers a great way to start a new fishing season at Lake of the Ozarks and often occurs during the bass’s natural spawning period. Six and seven pound fish are not uncommon in this early spring tournament. 

The Fall Classic, held the last Saturday and Sunday in October, gives anglers the chance to enjoy brilliant autumn colors and fantastic fall fishing at our great Lake. Both tournaments include a separate Big Bass pot. 

Payback of tournament fees is always 100%
