***Pre fishing ends 6 hours before Captains meeting***
The only way to get a permit on Tournament day is to purchase it at the Captains meeting. As always, Lake Rangers will not be issuing permits for Anglers on Saturday. Anglers fishing without a permit will be disqualified. If you are a member of the POA, you must show your valid photo ID at the Captains meeting check in.

Fish It Forward hosted another Bella Vista event but this time with guests from Natural State Kayak Anglers.

Justin Phillips took first place with a 5 bass limit measuring 74.75” and taking home $335 in cash and a $200 gift certificate towards the purchase of a Torqeedo motor bringing his total winnings to $535.

The second payout goes to David Byrd for showing up with the smallest limit with 63.75” and took home $201 and some Pepps Custom Baits.

The wildcard payout was for 17th place and that went to Patricia Henderson taking home $135 and some Pepps Custom Baits.

Shout out to Nick and Aaron at Hook Line & Sinker Outdoors for providing the tournament HQ.

As always we appreciate Rick Echols with Bella Vista Property Owners Association for allowing Fish It Forward to host kayak tournaments on these beautiful lakes.

Big thank you to Jeff Little who stopped by to bring us Torqeedo gift certificates and to show off the new prototype that will be released at iCast next week. Can’t wait to see the video he got of anglers on the water.

The Fish It Forward Kayak Fishing Series (02) event number 2 is in the books, with bad weather being forecast for the day, and a big charity tournament in Oklahoma pulling away anglers (for a very good cause) we had just 7 anglers this time. The weather turned out to be very bearable, with only a light rain in the last couple of hours, and the cooler temperatures didn't seem to hurt fishing. As always we'd like to thank Hook Line & Sinker Outdoors for allowing us to use their facility to host our events, as well as sponsoring the Big Bass prize. If you are in the area of any of their locations please stop by and give them a look, we promise you'll find something you need!

Dwain Batey - Kayak Bass Fishing caught 74.75 inches of fish to bring home 1st place, including an 18 incher to also win the Hook Line & Sinker Outdoors Big Bass prize. He reported fishing a Zoom Fluke in the morning, and a Skirmish Baits M9 squarebill in the afternoon when the rain started. Dwain fished 2 of the Bella Vista Property Owners Association lakes, Rayburn and Brittany for the event. He was not targeting bedding fish, but reported seeing plenty of beds, but blind fishing in those areas.

Jason Adams was a close second place with 71.75 inches of bass on the board. His two best fish came on a Skirmish Baits Crevice Critter crankbait, and the rest on a drop shot.

Third place was Chad Warford who took home a prize package from Pepps Custom Baits.

Last place with fish was Mike Fohner with 3 for 41.75

We look forward to seeing everyone at our next event, and thank you do the anglers who braved the cold and rain with us this time.

The first Fish It Forward event of 2019 is in the books. We had a great turnout with 24 anglers competing on their choice of the 7 Bella Vista Lakes. The fishing was a little slow, but someone always figures them out and in the end Brian Rosencutter took the win with 75.25 inches, Jason Kincy was a close second with 74.75 inches,
and Dwain Batey took 3rd with 57.75 inches. Jason Kincy also won Big Bass honors with a 16.5" bass. 4th place Marc Coats won a $50 lurenet.com gift card, and 5th place Justin Phillips won 3 bags of Pepps Custom Baits soft plastics.

We'd like to thank Hook Line & Sinker Outdoors for opening up their Bentonville location on Sunday to let us use their store for the host site. and for being the headline sponsor for the event. They have a great tackle store with a very good selection, and we had many anglers finding what they needed for the day before they headed out on the water. If you've never been to their Bentonville location give them a look, you won't be disappointed.

We would also like to thank Bella Vista Property Owners Association and Rick Echols for allowing us to have these events on the Bella Vista Lakes.

We'd also like to thank every angler who came and participated in the event with us.

The next event will be held on April 13th and will be all of the Bella Vista Lakes except Loch Lomond.
