Canadian Smallmouth Bass Record Smashed

Canadian Smallmouth Bass Record Smashed

Over 100 teams hit the waters of Lake Simcoe this morning around 7:00 am.  They were out to catch the big one.  This is Canada's premier bass tournament, each team is allowed to bring 5 bass back and have them weighed by 3:00 pm.

A guaranteed $25,000 is up for grabs, with a chance to double that with other various prizes.  A brand new Toyota Truck and Tracker boat worth about $100,000 is standing by for the team that can break the Ontario record for smallmouth bass.  The current record for total weight of not more than 5 bass sits at 30.35 lbs.

Today the record was smashed when a team stepped up to the scales and showed off their 5 bass that weighed in at 31.55 lbs.  A new Canadian record.

Lake Simcoe is an hours drive north of Toronto, Ontario and is known for the big smallmouth bass.  A must fish event has fishermen coming from all over the country.

All of the fish caught in the event are checked, tagged and released back into the water.  The teams will be back next year looking for them, hoping they are a little fatter, giving them a chance to break this new Canadian record.
