The Arkansas BASS Federation sponsors several bass fishing tournaments every single year. Some of them are only for local clubs and others are for anyone to take part in. Some of them require you to win lower level tournaments to gain entry into the higher up ones. Every October they host a two day state champion’s tournament. This takes place as the Lake Hamilton Hot Springs.

They also host a two day event in April of each year called the ARKIE Cup Tournament. You can find out the rules and how to enter on their website. These are some of the best bass fishing events around so you don’t want to miss out on being a part of them! You will also find plenty of great fishermen there that you can meet and that makes these tournaments even more special.

The Arkansas BASS Federation realizes the value of getting children involved with fishing at an early age. They offer some great tournaments for them as well. They offer two age groups – 7 to 10 and 11 to 14. Every June they host what is considered to be the largest fishing tournament for children with some great prices and lots of fun to be shared by every child that participates. This is a great opportunity for children to learn more about bass fishing and to really be a big part of a unique event just for them.

Each year in February there is a bass fishing tournament at the Lake Greers Ferry, Devils Fork ramp area. This is open to the public and it is a fundraiser for the Central Arkansas Travelers Benefit. This is a traveling youth baseball team in the area. The entry fee is only $20 per person and the day is going to be amazing.

There are a couple of boat only bass fishing tournaments in Arkansas that occur every year too along the Arkansas River. One of them is in March at the Pine Bluff Regional Park. It is open to the public and the cost is $110 per boat. In June there is another one that takes place at the Verizon Ramp which is also open to the public. It is a two day event, and the entry fee is $80 for one day or $140 for both days per person.

The biggest event of all though takes place every October. It is the Mr. Bass of Arkansas tournament. There are divisions for both pros and amateurs. You have to be invited to this particular event, and it is limited to 150 anglers. You get invited by winning smaller tournaments throughout the year in Arkansas. The Mr. Bass of Arkansas is a three day event.
