The 30th Annual Sturgeon Bay Open Bass Tournament (SBOBT) presented by Mercury and Ranger Boats, originally slated for May 15-16 it was forced to be rescheduled. The event was combined with the annual fall event and will be held in Sturgeon Bay out of Sawyer Park. All prizes including early bird registration prizes, a new Ranger boat powered by Mercury Outboard Motor and all entry fees/registrations was transferred to the new dates of September 11-12, 2020.
The new dates are combined with our annual fall event that was scheduled for that time frame but will now expand into a two-day event, with added features and a new location making it a bigger better event for all anglers as well as our host community in Door County.
Teams who previously registered for the spring dates will automatically have their registration moved to the new dates.
“The SBOBT Committee and NABC is dedicated to the Sturgeon Bay/Door County area in these difficult times. We are committed to bring revenue into the community that has made the Sturgeon Bay Open Bass Tournament a success for the past 30 years” said SBOBT Committee President Wendy Heim. “We look forward to seeing the anglers and their families in Sturgeon Bay September 11-12 along with the spectators from the Sturgeon Bay area.”
