2020 Open Bay Bass Tournament Results

Open Bay Bass Tournament

Tournament Date–Jan 25, 2020


To Bryan Davis and Whitney Uyeda for winning this years event. They brought in a beautiful sack of sandbass (10.43 pounds) topped by a nice 5 pound fish. The win earned them $1500 from Fishermans Landing tackle, $250 for largest bass (Seaforth Boat Rentals) and the jackpot of $1450. Rumor has it they caught their fish on Ring Hammer made by Big Hammer lures.
