Open Tournaments?

Recommended Posts

Anyone know of any good open tournaments to fish throughout the summer. I'm not able to fish in my club this year due to busy schedule so I wouldn't mind just fishing a couple open tournaments during the summer fall. I know classic bass will list the tournaments but I'm not sure which ones are open to anyone. I also don't want to pay $200 for a team either. Wouldn't mind keeping it $100 or less per team. Any info would be great.

The Thorne Bros mystery tournaments were fun last year. Highly suggest them

PM has been emptied.

Also I just realized there was something posted about open tournaments in the last couple weeks. Sorry for the new post.

I'd highly recommend bdawg23's events. Small entry, laid back, well run and good competition. Very similar to Thorne Bros mystery events - which I'd also recommend.

Do the bdawg ones have a HSOforum?

I'm also looking around for a club/league or opens located in the west metro area if anyone has any to clue me in on that would be great...a lot harder to find online than it seems it would be.

The GreenHorn Bass Tour has spots available for any angler. There is the GreenHorn Sunday and Wednesday series for beginner/intermediate and weekend warriors as well as the Advanced Sunday series for advanced (or any) anglers. There are still spots available in all three series. These tournaments are intended on helping anglers learn from eachother while keeping a competitive spirit alive. These are low cost, low stress events for a good time.

    • My slicer works well yet at 130 and it's not almost fully cooked.
    • Thanks for some of the tips. I will try it in the next couple of weeks when i have time. I have read to smoke till about 150 internal temp does it make a diffrence if it goes to 130 or 150?
    • that makes 2 of us. Not sure what the deal is but going back and looking at old posts its doing the same to those pics as well. and there were no issues with those prior.   maybe has to do with the site being down over the weekend and some changes were made? @Rick
    • Looks good to me rundrave.  Is it just me or my phone, but the pics are on roids and I need glasses to read what's typed all of a sudden...
    • I've done both wet and dry brines with much better results with the dry. As grainbelt stated you can mix up whatever sweetness you like. Here's a simple one but pretty good. Its ALL per pound of meat.   1- Tbsp of tenderquick  1.5 Tbsp brown sugar  1/4 tsp black pepper  1 tsp garlic powder ( optional) Mix all the spices together and coat the belly , depending on the size you might have to cut it in half,  this is when you do that and stuff em in two 2 gallon ziplocs.   You can add some maple syrup to the bags as well,flip them  every day for 6 or 7 days then rinse them off real well,  put them on a wire rack and place back in the fridge uncovered. Next day smoke , and like grainbelt said your target internal temp is around 130, let them cool off and wrap up in plastic wrap for the next day of slicing. It might sound a lot of steps but its not that bad, with great results!! Good luck.    
    • If anyone here is in the market for an electric smoker, give me an IM. I will soon be listing my MES 40 that has only been used 1 time. It is barely even seasoned!
    • Not yet, but I have been thinking of trying one....
    • I figure any fish that doesn't get into my boat was a wall-hanger for sure. 😀
    • I've never bought a car/truck over $15K, so yeah.  It would take a powerball jackpot before I was in the market for a dealer showroom boat.
