With one full year under their belts, Bluegrass Yakmasters are back and ready to start their tournament series once again with a big bass showdown at Cedar Creek Lake in Stanford, KY. Last year it took well over 50” to crack the Top Five at Cedar. If that doesn’t get you excited enough, then maybe the chance to win a raffled kayak from HOOK1 will do the trick!

Long Run Park is located in Jefferson County, KY. The lake is big enough to yield 5lb - 6lblargemouth bass, but small enough to fool most boat anglers into passing it up. This makes it an ideal place for an evening kayak fishing adventure.
