What does a BBZ1 RAT 50, a kayak and a little big bass contest on Table Rock Lake have in common?
The Rat 50's first tournament victory.
Richy Laughery was able to utilize online tools, lake map app and the BBZ mantra to locate fish on Table Rock Lake.
"Fishing out of a kayak, you try to narrow down areas with the greatest potential for fish so that you don't burn up time paddling around" Richy says.
He ended up catching a 18.75 inch smallmouth on the Rat 50, that took home the Big Bass honor and $90 cash, winning Ozarks Extreme Outdoor's "Friday Night Fish Off". Not a major tournament, but when a few friends, 5 of the guys were in the top 6 in Angler of the Year point of the Mo-Yak Fishing Series, comes out to fish against each other, it's serious competition.
Keep it in the BBZ!
