It was another action packed year for the KBI, and from start to finish, the event was nothing less than exciting. Competitors from across North America came to Kenora, Ontario to target the heaviest largemouth and smallmouth bass they could find, and claim the cash prize for $25,000.
This year we were proud to have two boats flying the FXR banner. Josh Peacock and teammate in one, and Matt Peters with Dustin Byfuglien in the other.
Both teams fought the extreme elements on the first two days, with team Matt and Dustin landing themselves in the top 3 on day one.
Weights were slightly down on day two, however Josh Peacock, with his special skill in targeting heavy Largemouth to thank, crushed a tank at 5.26 pounds and cashed a check for biggest bass.
