Summer Slam

Online Event

​July 26-July28th

Summer Slam 2013

Summary & Results

The BKFT held its first ever online tournament of the year the weekend of July 26-28th.  It was a bass only tournament that counted the top 3 bass for each angler.  There were also bonus trail points for any angler that caught an 'Ohio Slam' (16"+ bass, 18"+ catfish, and 12"+ crappie).....more on that later.

As with any BKFT trail event weather just HAD to play a major role.  The tournament weekend had a major rain system move across most of Ohio early Saturday morning and into the early afternoon.  The rain was then followed by cooler temperatures Saturday afternoon into Sunday.   Even the abnormally low temperatures were not enough to keep the anglers from hooking up with some very impressive catches.  Ten anglers were able to exceed a 50" total for 3 bass and 5 bass exceeded 20" in length.  

Some anglers tried for the 'Ohio Slam' and were able to catch a qualifying catfish and bass, but could not find the elusive 12" crappie needed.  

In all, there was $440 to be awarded and it seemed fitting that everyone in the top 10 receive money since they were the only ones that posted 50"+.
