FISHING: Bemidji pair wins Kenora Bass Invitational
KENORA, Man. -- Scott Andersen and Craig Peterson of Bemidji took first place at the Kenora Bass Invitational fishing tournament, which was held Aug. 9-11 on the north end of Lake of the Woods.
The duo’s three-day haul of 55.28 pounds of fish was enough to top the rest of the 128-team field, finishing just over two pounds more than second place Bill Godin and Leroy Wilson.
Godin and Wilson, who were reigning champions after winning the tournament in 2017, were on the hot seat until Andersen and Peterson came in as the last boat of the day to unseat them.
The winning pair took in 18.53 pounds on day one, 18.9 on day two and 17.85 on day three.
