The 2nd annual California Open at Clear Lake figures to be the biggest and most prestigious bass tournament in California this year. This tournament is held each year at Clear Lake, which is a lake that many consider to be the best bass fishery in our state. It is also held during the apex time of the year for catching lots of big bass at Clear Lake, and it spans a full 3 days for each angler. Every day there will be significant paybacks for big bass and big stingers, so nobody is eliminated from a payday during the tournament.
A tremendous effort has been made to bring in the sponsors necessary to make this event succeed and to grow going forward, and the response to this effort has been to date incredible. Reactor Watches has for instance stepped up and will give away $800.00 (each) engraved Nucleus watches to our winning Pro and AAA anglers, and will also award three $600.00 Newtron watches in our early bird drawing, which closes Mon March 28, 2014. so get your entry in now!

Our title sponsors, Nitro Boats and Mercury Outboards have stepped up with a Nitro Z-7 Boat, equipped with a 150 HP Optimax motor for the winner, who will not only get the boat package but also a boat-load of cash to go with it. Unlike many other circuits the boat does not require you to drive that model boat or to purchase a tournament package to be eligible to win it. It is in addition to cash payback.
In addition there are many other major WON BASS sponsors jumping in and lending their support with products, and here is just a sampling of our sponsors who will be directly participating at the California Open at Clear Lake championships.
