The BASS Angler of the Year tournament was held on Mille Lacs for an unprecedented two years in a row in 2017 and 2018. The nations top 50 anglers got to experience first hand what we have known for many years. Mille Lacs is truly a world class trophy smallmouth bass lake. Both years Mille Lacs didn’t disappoint and 20 pound five fish limits were common. In 2017 Minnesota native Seth Feider top the field with 15 fish that weighed over 75 pounds….pretty impressive…but wait….over the 3 day tournament there were 77, 5 fish bags that weighed over 20 pounds!
