July 27, 2019

2nd Half of the Season Begins on Center

The fourth tourney of the year represents the crossing over the halfway point of the 2019 season! This Sunday we will be going back to North and South Center presented by Onyx Outdoors. Previous stops here were back in June of 2016 and July of 2013.

So far this season, we have had quite a representation of Team of the Year leaders and various teams that have placed in the money over the first 3 tournaments. The results speak for themselves in that our Team of the Year race is all but assured for Minnesota Bass Tour members! Coming off a 3rd place finish on Lake Washington, Team Shake N’ Bake’s Lucas Matzke and Derek Born are hoping to keep up their consistent play on The Center Lakes and maintain their 5 point lead on the rest of the field. Here’s the rest of the details for this Tourney #4!

Other Tourney Notes

Weigh-In Procedures: With the warmer water and potential stress on fish, we are taking steps to minimize any mortality during the weigh-in. We will be having no more than three bags of bass out of the live wells at one time. Similar to last tournament, we will also be asking a few boats to stay in the water to release these bass away from the public access area where water is muddier and shallow.

No Wake Zones: Please be aware of unmarked shallow water areas and the channel between the two lakes.

Good Luck on North & South Center presented by Onyx Ourdoors!
