The big fish pot will be $10.00 per team for both days. The big fish pot is not optional and it will be spit evenly both days. Local anglers Matt Palmer, one of the men who came up with the idea of the tournament three years ago, and his partner Wendell Hall will be one of the Bainbridge teams in the tournament.

“We appreciate Matt Palmer and all the others who have made the tournament possible,” Adrienne Harrison of the Convention and Visitors Bureau said..

Palmer said he could not take credit for solely coming up with the idea of the tournament.

“Bainbridge City manager Chris Hobby, former city of Bainbridge employee Tommy King and other members of the bass committee and I all got together and jointly came up with the tournament idea,” Palmer said.
