SEGKBF kicked off the 2021 Kayak Bass Fishing Season with Evans County PFA Tournament.
We had a total of 14 anglers battling it for the top spot in the season opener.
This is our first year as a club here in Southeast Georgia. We will be fishing five trail events. Trail events are being held at different Georgia Public Fishing Areas throughout the Southeast.
Start of the Morning
The Evans County PFA Tournament was the first event of the year. The morning started cool and windy. All the anglers had to battle 11-15 mph winds all day on the lakes. All the anglers were excited and immediately hit the water.
Just after about an hour into the tournament A.J. Balbo was the leader netting just a little over 30 inches. This included the biggest fish of the tournament at 18.50 inches.
As the morning went on, more anglers began catching fish. Right after noontime, the leaderboard changed. Ron Champion jumped into the lead with 53.75 inches.
Closely in second place was Troy Morgan with 48.75 inches. Troy was on fish and made a move with time running out.
Coming to an End
The day was coming to an end and we had a battle for the top spot. Sitting on the dock watching this come to an end it was getting exciting. This being my first ever true kayak bass tournament as a Tournament Director, I was rooting everyone on.
Anglers started making the way back to the boat landing at 2:30. With all fish submitted and having a few more to judge, overall it was a great first tournament for Southeast Georgia Kayak Bass Fishing.
Overall, everyone thought the tournament was a success. The final results were in and it was time to reveal them to all the anglers.
Ron Champion took first place, Troy Morgan took second place, and A.J. Balbo took third place.
Total fish caught for the today where 19 fish, totaling a whooping 252.50 inches.
SEGKBF would like to thank Kioti Outfitters, Solar Bat Sunglasses, and Knee Deep Tackle for their support of the third-place prize packets for 2021.
A.J. Balbo also took home the Bass Patrol Nation Big Bass Bucks.
Next Trail Series
Next on the series is Hugh M. Gillis PFA. It is a 109-acre lake located just outside Dublin, Georgia. It is known for some big bass, so it will be a great fishery to get the angler on. Come follow us on Tourney X Live Leaderboard for this one.Evans-County-PFA-2021-Club-Standings
