After a great tournament for the Orange Club, Yellowstone Lake was primed for another great event for the Green Club. The morning started with a cool light breeze and overcast sky, and with anglers arriving on time and ready to go, the tournament was shaping up to be a good one.
Then, Mother Nature threw us a curve ball. Winds picked up, clouds rolled in, and lightning flashing all around us. Finally, with a loud crack of thunder, the anglers were called in to await further instructions. After 40 minutes of delay, the KBL staff decided to call the live event and continue the tournament in the online format in the best interest of the angler’s safety. The difficult decision was made after consulting the weather radar and the entire KBL team.
The online continuation was a 2 weeks event hosted on TourneyX. Anglers were allowed to fish Illinois and Wisconsin waters during this period and submit them via TourneyX. Anglers are also allowed to submit their fish from the live event prior to the delay. For 2 weeks, the participating anglers caught some great fish and the tournament came down to the wire.
Susie Magarity wins the tournament with 4 fish totaling 75.75 inches as well as the 20 inch big bass. With this sweep Susie takes home the Tackle Trap and Rocktown Adventure certificates as well as the prize money.
Josh Bennett finished closely behind with 74 inches while Atif Goodman picks up 3rd place with 71 inches.
Since we were not going to do the raffle on site due to the weather, the KBL staff drop the names into the digital raffle drum and came away with the following winners!
Stankx Bait – Kyle Carlson
Karu Lure – Kamran Rasheed
YakAttack – Ricky Compton
KBL T-shirt – Horace Bennett
Bending Branches – Paul Gula
YakAddicts Certificate – Ricky Santiago
Ram Mounts Certificate – Atif Goodman
Once again we like to thank our sponsors and partners for supporting the KBL.
We also want to thank and congratulate all the anglers on a great tournament and thank you for growing with us.
