For the second year in a row, YakAngler.com was invited to attend the Hobie Bass Open at Kentucky Lake. This was the second annual Bass Open that Hobie has hosted here, giving anglers a chance to win a spot in the Hobie Fishing World Championship at Shang Lake in China.

Coming out on top was Lexington, KY’s Tyson Peterson. Tyson caught his way to a $3,000 check and a trip to China. Tyson and his fishing partner Jay Wallen (who took third place) battled two days of tough fishing conditions working ledges. Their dedication to sticking to their plan proved to be a winning strategy.

Finishing in second was New Jersey’s Tom Michael, who collected a hefty $2,000 check for his success. Another Kentuckian took third as Jay Wallen took home a very nice $1,000 check for his finish.

Tournament Results

Tyson Peterson – 116”

Tom Michael – 109.75”

Jay Wallen – 109.25”

Overall, Hobie put on a great event. They really treated the YakAngler crew well, even giving us a five-time Pro Bowler, five-time All-Pro and Hall of Fame tight end to captain the video boat we worked to cover the event.

 

 

Be sure to stay tuned to YakAngler.com in the upcoming weeks for our video recap of the event.

After fishing the KBF Open in March I really wanted to try and make this event.
