I was fishing the 3rd annual Anchor Bay Kayak (CPR) Fishing Tournament and caught 8 of these 20+ inch smallmouth bass. It was about a 4 mile paddle one way to reach this spot from the nearest launch location but by efforts pay off well. This one was not the largest SMB that I caught that day but the largest I was able to hold still long enough so I could snap the photo and release it safely. Needless to say I won the Bass division of the tournament with this one fish and had a great day on the water.


**(The weight was not recorded and is an est becuase this was a catch photograph and release event)
