The 5th Annual Big Bass Bash brought to you by KNUE and Raising Cane's Chicken Fingers is finally in the books. The checks have been written and the keys to the grand prize boat are in the hands of its new owner.

We had a great time at Lake Palestine Resort with over 350 anglers and can't wait for next year's event on April 28-29 in 2018.
