With the exception of a few hiccups in the morning logistically, everything went smoothly for the first ever large scale tournament going out of this ramp. But once the day got going I am certain that the anglers enjoyed everything about the tournament. There were shuttle golf carts, sandwiches for lunch available and a awesome dinner provided to the teams once they weighed-in their fish.

I for one want to say THANK YOU to the anglers for their patience at the ramp in the morning. There was a slight learning curve to get things done orderly and it was accomplished. We will be improving for the next event. We will be back as the City has committed to MonsterQuest for another 3 years!!!! That was due in a large part by the support of the anglers attending the event and the spectators that showed up for the free hot dog and raffle.

Dont forget the Cash for Bass Tour starts THIS Saturday June 29th at Harley Ensign. See you at 5:00am for registration.

There are also two Thursday Night events going on. One on St Clair and one on Union Lake. Check Facebook Events for details!!!!

Pictures will be posted on the Cash for Bass Facebook page soon!

Wow! I didn't understand that they committed to 3 MORE years!! I really like to see this kind of involvement. It sends a message (my personal interest for helping a longtime challenge). It is really good to see people partnering together to do something many people can enjoy, while building interest in bass fishing, fishing, Lake St. Clair and boosting our very important natural resources economy!! Great job people!!

And thanks for posting the results and information on here Mini! Why didn't you guys get this posted Saturday within 30 minutes of the weigh in?!? ;D Just kidding of course. This is actually pretty fast for all volunteers, I just enjoyed reading the posts on the other site. Still don't know why people want to run tournaments but I'm glad they do and say thank you.

The best one was the guy that asked at 6:07pm the day of. The money was still being passed out @ the event!

We will keep you informed Dan. As always you are welcome to any or all of our events. Maybe even get that camera guy to fish one or two with you :)

You can always do the Thursday evening ones so you dont have to get up early :)
