Alhonna's Bass 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 100%
Take off is scheduled at 7:00 AM on Saturday and Sunday. Weigh-ins are at 4:00 PM on Saturday and 2:00 PM on Sunday. The cash prizes are given out following the weigh-in on Sunday. Guest rooms are available at Alhonna Resort. Accommodations include motel and kitchenette units for 2 to 12 people. Some units have fireplaces. All rooms include one covered, electrified boat slip and ramp fees for the first boat. Additional boats are $10.00 per night. Ramp, overnight slip and trailer parking fees are not included for tournament participants not staying at Alhonna.
Bobbers Restaurant at Alhonna offers a complimentary pre-take off breakfast and coffee starting at 6:00AM on Saturday and Sunday morning. Alhonna also offers the following amenities…indoor heated pool, 2 hot tubs, full service gas dock, boat rentals, bait, ice and fishing license.
