Twenty-One Fishing Pro’s and Champions teamed with twenty-one amateur co-anglers this past weekend with a combined fishing and golf tournament at Lake of the Ozraks. The unique style tournament format, included two days of fishing as a team (Pro – Amateur) and nine holes of scramble golf to win a pot of the $15,325.00.
Old Kinderhook and Bassing Bob were hosting this first year event, with an impressive pot that was fully funded by the amateur co-anglers who put-up a $500.00 registration fee and added to that initial pot by bidding in an auction style to fish with the Pro of their choice.
