On Sunday 05/22/2016, 23 KBL Green Club Anglers and the lone Orange Club angler descended upon Banner Marsh – Johnson Lake to take part in Kayak Bass League (KBL) Club Classic Tour Green Tournament #2.
The weather was beautiful and the day started bright and early at 4:30AM for check-in and pre-tournament meeting. Johnson Lake is a very good fishery of roughly 600 Acres, providing anglers many different types of structure, water depth and vegetation to sift through to find the biggest bass in these post spawn conditions.
At the end of the day, 18 anglers caught bass with only 3 fulfilling the limit and here are the KBL superstars of the day.
Tony Lam – Big Bass 19.75
KBL Orange Club Pro-Staffer Tony “The Toffee Dealer” Lam caught the biggest bass of the day and of the tour so far with a 4lb – 19.75″ bass. Tony took home the $120.00 big bass pot and the $25 Tackle Trap Big Bass Gift Certificate.
