• Thousand Islands Open

    Renegade Bass, the leader in live release bass tournament fishing in Canada, is pleased to announce the launch of the Thousand Islands Open presented by Hookset.com. This team tournament will take place on the St. Lawrence River July 30- August 1, 2015 in Rockport, Ontario Canada.

    Ed Huck Marina will play host for this exciting 3-day event which will be open to a maximum of 100 teams competing for $100,000 in guaranteed prize money plus a Ranger Bass Boat powered by Evinrude BR and the title of Thousand Islands Open Champions. The event will also feature a unique, first of its kind way to win the Ranger Bass Boat powered by Evinrude BRP. The field will be cut in half on the final day.

    Every team making the final cut-off on the last day of the tournament will receive a Ranger boat key. Only one key will start the Evinrude BRP Motor. This means any of the teams making the final day cut will have the chance to win the boat and motor package with a turn of the key.
