Lake St Helen August 21st



The Humminbird & Minn Kota Open

August 21, 2021 on Lake St. Helen


On August 21st, Top Bass, held it’s seventh tournament of the season on Lake St. Helen. This event, was named “The Humminbird & Minn Kota Open”, after one of our great sponsors.

The weather for this tournament was HOT and humid, with temps in the upper 80’s and light winds.

The fishing was much better, than the last time we fished it, and also last year. We had a total of 16 limits come to weigh-in, with another 8 having 3-4 fish. Only 4 anglers did not weigh-in.

Top Bass, wants to THANK, Mercury Marine, for their continued sponsorship.

Third Place went to Mike Callas, from Midland with 12.71#. Steve Bigelow, from Gladwin held down Fourth Place, with 12.56#. Big Bass for the tournament went to Kevin Vida, from Clare with 4.33#.
