U.S. OPEN champs U.S. OPEN Champions Rich Tauber and Aaron Martens at the 2009 U.S. OPEN

The U.S. Open made history back in 1981 with the first ever professional bass tournament offering over $150,000 in prizes payouts. Back then, tournament fishing was still in its infancy, and nothing like the U.S. Open had ever been offered to a national audience.  

Winning the U.S. Open has paved the way for many anglers since the inaugural event when Greg Hines captured the title. The U.S. Open has produced xxx different champions along the way--the list is a virtual who’s who in the bass industry. Names such as three-time winners Mike Folkestad and Aaron Martens; two-time winners Clifford Pirch, Byron Velvick, John Murray; and of course, none other than Mr. Bass Pro Shops himself, Rick Clunn, have earned the title of champion during the 30-year history of the U.S. Open.
