(May. 13, 2010 - Mountain Home, AR)... Bass Cat Boat Owners from across the country have converged on Mountain Home, Arkansas this week to attend the Bass Cat Owners Invitational. This two day tournament is open to all owners of Bass Cat Boats from our 1971 models to the newest 2010 models. The Pierce Family has provided family oriented fun, great prizes, and a challenging fishing tournament which has been a tradition since 1987.

The Pierce family and Bass Cat employees welcome their customers with southern hospitality and some challenging fishing on Lake Norfork. 481 Owners accepted the Invitation and launched this morning in typical Invitational an overcast morning ... threatening forecast. Sure can’t dampen the hopes of taking home the grand prize, a 2010 Bass Cat Pantera II, rigged with a new Mercury 200 OptiMax. Great prizes
including vast assortment of Strike King products ... as well as those from many other sponsors are at stake during this two day tournament.

Our first day leaders, Stephen and Gerald Mitchell of Rhinehart, LA weighed in 5 nice Bass weighing 15.66 pounds, they were very tight lipped on stage as the looked out at the first place prize, a Pantera II sparkling in the distance.Second place team of Doug Osmera and Pat Hayes of Omaha, NE followed at a slight distance with 14.75 ... knowing they have to be on their game prior to Friday’s final weigh-in.

Big Bass today was a healthy 5.30 lunker brought to the scales by the second place team of Doug Osmera and Pat Hayes.

The cloudy skies might predict a similar day tomorrow for the final weigh-in.
