The Arkansas Big Bass Shootout was created by a fishing family for fishing families. In hopes of bringing out the joys of being in the great outdoors, we brought you the first ever Big Bass Shootout 2018 right here in Little Rock, AR. The Big Bass Shootout is a boat and tackle expo filled with everything you need to start or advance your fishing experience. We have everything from boats to tackle to gear you can't live without. 


    The boat and tackle expo is accompanied by a two-day tournament presented by Mr. Bass of Arkansas. Weigh-in for the tournament is live on the main stage at the Big Bass Shootout. The 2019 show will bring you a two day tournament, boat and tackle expo, AND a LIVE drive-Thru Weigh-In right in the center of Barton Coliseum at The Arkansas State Fair Grounds. Weigh-ins will begin at 4:00pm both days. This is a show you don't want to miss.

     During the expo, we have many events to watch and be a part of. The Flippin' Competition held by Fish'n Stuff, will put your under-handed casting skills to the test. This event will take place during both days of the expo with a chance to win $1,000. Winner will be announced at the final, live weigh-in on February 17th at 4:00pm. This event will be held in the center of Barton Coliseum in the heart of the event, so you won't miss a thing! Baggo is another favorite sport of ours.  The Baggo Shootout Tournament 2019 will be held February 17th during the expo. This is an exciting team tournament fit for any competitor. More information about these events can be found under our "EVENTS" tab here on our website.


    Bring the kids out to experience the fun! We offer many free kids activities. Our friends from the 4-H Center, Game and Fish, and Smokey The Bear come together to visit with your kiddos about getting outside and exploring nature.  Kids 5 & under get in the gates free. We have goodies that will be handed out throughout the show (while supplies last) to our little ones. Our goal is to get your family outside and we provide the tools and information to help you succeed!

Come see us for the 2019 Arkansas Big Bass Shootout February 16th and 17th, for some big prizes and give-aways!
