Tournament Winners

Event #4 at Black Canyon Reservoir is over and what a day it was. The weather was near perfect, yet some midweek weather really changed the bite. This made it a grind for all with some anglers finding the right pattern and putting up some nice fish!

Dan Zimmerschied found the bite and finished with 79” taking the win, $631.50 and he also qualifies for the KFNW Kayak Bass Classic! Congratulations Dan!

Picking up second place with 75.75” was Jed Rivera who took home $263.13 for his efforts. Third & fourth places were a tie at 67.25” with Jeremy Miller taking third with the larger big fish tiebreaker. Jeremy took home $157.88. Fourth place went to Ethan Mason, great job on a strong finish.


  1. Dan Zimmerschied – 79″ – $631.50
  2. Jed Rivera – 75.75″ – $263.13
  3. Jeremy Miller – 67.25″ – $157.88


The Idaho River Sports Big Bass went to Dan Zimmerschied and his 19.75” pig of a LMB. Dan took home an additional $261.50 for that big fish ($161.50 cash plus a $100 Idaho River Sports gift certificate).
