OCEANSIDE, Calif. (July 27, 2021) - The Hobie Bass Open Series (B.O.S.) Anchored by Power-Pole® rolls into Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, late this month where an elite field of kayak anglers plan to mine the Susquehanna River’s world-class smallmouth bass fishery in the hopes of striking gold. This famed stretch of rocky river boasts one of the most productive bronzeback fisheries in the country as it weaves its way through scenic hills, and the bass here are renowned for their willingness to feed ravenously throughout the day on the 40-plus mile stretch within newly expanded tournament boundaries.
“If the fishing is anything like last year this is going to be a highly competitive event – and a ton of fun,” says tournament director, A.J. McWhorter. “As an avid river angler myself, there’s nothing that gets me more excited than cool flowing water in the middle of summer paired with an aggressive smallmouth bite. The anglers making this trip are going to have an incredible time on the Susquehanna River. We’ve expanded the boundaries a bit this year to give everyone more room to spread out, especially those who may be a little intimidated by shallow, fast-flowing water. They’re going to be able to find a few deeper pools a bit downriver that hold some grass and presents significant largemouth opportunities that could come into play. We’ve also opened-up a stretch of the Juniata River that will allow anglers access to an area with less flow than the main river while still offering terrific fishing potential.”
