Alhonna’s Bass Fishing Tournaments

Twice a year, Alhonna Resort is host to an “open buddy bass” tournament. The Early Bird Tournament, held usually the last 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. Seven and eight pound fish are not uncommon in this early spring tournament. The Fall Classic, normally held 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%
