The Hobie Bass Open Series takes it back to Lake Dardanelle for stop 4 of the 2021 season. Expect to see some big limits submitted on Tourney X from this one. Hobie is hitting the lake at one of the best times of the year, with the water warming, the bass are on the move to the shallows. Moving baits will most likely be big players here as the fish will be in transition, but I suspect somebody may get on a good flipping bite if the water levels are right. Some sight fishing may be a factor depending on water clarity, and you can't completely throw out the possibility of an offshore bite coming in to play. The Lines In crew will be on site at Dardanelle for this one!
124 anglers took to Dardanelle for the 4th stop of the Hobie Bass Open Series on April 17-18. Lake Dardanelle is known for being a shallow water fishery and with the spawn lurking this event was sure to be a slugfest. The event began Saturday morning with a cool morning welcome as temperatures dropped into the 40s overnight. The water levels dropped over 1 ft. as well throwing in another curveball for the competitors to contend with. Typical tournament day fashion. Despite the changing conditions the bass seemed to stay shallow for the most part hanging around hard cover and vegetation and were targeted with chatterbaits, spinnerbaits, and texas rigged soft plastics.
