These 5 anglers have qualified for the 2021 Bassmaster B.A.S.S. Nation Kayak Champioship to be held in conjunction with the 2021 Academy Sports + Outdoors Bassmaster Classic March 19- 21, 2021 Lake Ray Roberts, Fort Worth, TX. The kayak tournament host water has yet to be determined by B.A.S.S.

Several anglers competed in the very first Maine B.A.S.S. Nation Kayak State Championship and with high winds predicted for the Sunday event a short day was inevitable. With just 2 1/2 hours left the anglers were called in. After all the tallying the day was won by Brady Ouellette who topped the yak anglers with 91.25" of bass. Brady caught his fish by punching 1-2 oz weighted D-Bombs in thick patches of weeds, as well as catching a few bass under pads.

Special thanks to Old Town Canoe, and Lakeside Lodging & Marina for hosting the event.
