Over the course of the six official one hour daily weigh in periods, anglers will compete for 5 big fish prizes each hour. The competitor with the largest bass weighed in during each of the hourly periods will win $500*. The twelve lucky anglers weighing in the biggest bass during each period of the event will be eligible to participate in the grand prize drawing for a chance to win $10,000*. In addition, $3,000* will be awarded for the overall big fish of the event.
The Yamamoto Big Bass Challenge is affordable fishing fun. Anglers can elect to fish both days or just one. The entry fee is $150 per angler for both days or $100 for the single day option. No membership fee is required and anglers of all ages and skill levels are eligible to compete. In addition a special Kid's division is open to all anglers 15 years of age and younger.
Competitors may use only Yamamoto or Kinami baits Over the course of the event's history, one bait, the Senko has dominated the tournament leader board. Last year, the Senko accounted for an astounding 70 percent of the 60 hourly cash awards.
With the recent introduction of a full lineup of premium Yamamoto hard baits, this year's event may write a very different storyline. Competitors can select the Tate pencil or the Shibuki popper for topwater action. The Tenkuu jerkbait and the Chikara crankbait give anglers new options for targeting the California Delta's population of giant largemouth bass.
So join us for a weekend of fun at the 4th Annual Yamamoto Big Bass Challenge.
