Getting Ready for Ice

Finally some cold weather in the forecast! As fast as Mother Nature can make it we will be there to test it. First stop will be Potters Creek which we expect to be before Jan. 8th. It is a little later than last year but better late than never.

Potters First Ice 2015

2015 Annual Quinte Bass Champs on Bass Opener 20 June 2015.
$1000 for big fish EVERY HOUR
$500 for 2nd big fish EVERY HOUR

One of the most exciting and fun trends in tournament fishing these days is hourly weigh-in. This format adds a level of strategy beyond simply weighing in 5 big fish. With hourly weigh-ins you can choose the time interval to weigh in your biggest fish. If you think your fish will be the biggest on any given weigh-in interval you can take your chances and that no one else has caught a bigger fish that hour.

Quinte Bass Champs has put it all together and after only 4 years has become the most attended opening week tournament of the year. For more information check out www.quintebassanglers.ca

Trophy hunters from around the globe converge on Picton and surrounding area for a chance to have their picture with one of these spectacular fish.
