Biggest Bass Kayak Fishing Award

Nam Nguyen – 21.0 Inches

Here’s my first bass entry for the contest. I caught this big largemouth at Thole Lake near Shakopee. The bass slammed my topwater popper. We measured the fish and it was just a tad over 21″. Gary caught a few smaller bass but he’s waiting for one over 20 inches to submit. We fished Lake Ann on Sunday and caught a few there too.

Jay Suhsen – 20.875 Inches

From Jay: Hopefully you can tell that this is the right verification image. It’ s very unfortunate that it slipped down with all the thrashing around. From Ron Strauss: Tony is the Tournament Director and will make the call on this. My opinion is you have enough of the unique image in the photo to assure me it is original. From Tony: this entry is accepted.

Entry #1 19.5″. It’s great to be back on the river again!

The bite in the morning was slow but we did really well late this afternoon. Attached are a few photos. We pinched the mouth together and it looks like around 20.75″ or so.

Eric Paulson 19.5 Inch Bass

Matthew Nyquist – 17.5 Inches

Not sure if I’ll get out again this weekend so wanted to get this in now (heading to Canada this week for my annual Walleye trip). I don’t think 17.5″ will do it, but worth a shot! Thanks again for getting all this set up. The association tournaments have been awesome.
