PONHOOK LAKE, QUEENS COUNTY
JULY 17TH & 18TH, 2021
Atlantic Bass Open postponed until 2021!!!
The ABO is a premiere event here in Nova Scotia and has set itself to run at a very high standard for our competitive anglers. As a result and in complying with current restrictions, we are saddened to say that we must delay our event this year and come back strong in 2021.
We face site access restrictions, delays in the tournament season that will clearly go past our scheduled date, prizing restrictions (companies are cutting way back this season) and restrictions on gatherings themselves. Remember, the ABO has 80 to 90 angler's as well as a very large spectator crowd that we must consider.
Accordingly, we must acknowledge these shortcomings and in order to maintain our status as a premiere event, we need to hold off until 2021. Anything other than our usual top shelf event and stage show would be a detriment to the ABO brand.
Thanks everyone for your consideration and we really look forward to seeing at the ABO in 2021.
Stay safe, good fishing and have a great season.
