Hobie BOS - Tournament of Champions

Knoxville, TN
November 14th 7:00 am - November 15th 4:30 pm 2020,  Eastern • Multi-Day Tournament


The most prestigious Championship in Competitive Kayak Fishing comes to Knoxville, TN.  50 Anglers from all over the country have earned their opportunity to fish in this exclusive event. The Top Ten placing anglers will be paid out a minimum of $60,000 in cash and the top placing angler will earn a spot on Team USA for the 10th Hobie Fishing Worlds. A large championship class fishery with unlimited options for our anglers is going to produce an amazing show as the kayak fishing world watches and a new Grand Champion is crowned. 

Only the 50 qualified anglers will be eligible to enter this event.

Boundaries: The Holston River below Lake Cherokee dam. The French- Broad River below Douglas Lake will begin the eligible waters. Anglers must launch from public access or ramps. Wading and/ or portaging is not legal. River conditions can fluctuate drastically each day.  Please exercise extreme caution and awareness on these flows.

These rivers come together just outside Knoxville creating the Tennessee River and the first lake on the famous chain.  Anglers can launch at any public access or ramp on Lake Ft. Loudon. The boundary will be Ft. Loudon Dam. Connected by a canal near the dam is Lake Tellico. Anglers can launch at any public access or ramp on Lake Tellico, for reference this is also labeled on google maps as Little Tennessee River. The Chilhowee Dam is the physical boundary in the river. The Fairview Boat ramp will be considered a Launch boundary up the Tellico River arm.  Anglers CAN'T launch up -stream from this ramp, but they are allowed to fish above it.

As with all our events this year, anglers must launch at a public access or ramp. If an angler can pedal or paddle through an area it is legal.  If they can't that is considered a boundary. Portaging is illegal. Wading is illegal.

Event Headquarters: Farragut Community Center; 239 Jamestowne Blvd Suite 201, Knoxville, TN 37934
