Another Basstacular Sapp & Bass in the Books

Josee Gentry | Monday May 22, 2023

On May 13, Emery Sapp & Sons (ESS) hosted our second-ever Sapp and Bass fishing tournament at Table Rock Lake. A huge shoutout to our incredible partners and the angler community for making this event a success for The ESS Foundation. In case you missed it, you can catch a sneak peek below!

We couldn’t have asked for a better start to the weekend. On Friday evening, dozens of our industry partners gathered for the highly-anticipated pre-tournament Bait & Booze party. With live music, yard games, and cold beverages, what more could you ask for?

Bright and early Saturday morning, nearly 100 boats dropped their lines in the water with their eyes set on the grand prize: a SeaArk BC 210 powered by a Yamaha 250 SHO. Seven hours later, the boats made their way to Long Creek Marina for weigh-in as a crowd of onlookers eagerly welcomed them.

We want to extend a huge thank you to our employee-owners, industry partners, and sponsors for helping us make this tournament a great success! Congratulations to the lucky anglers who took home the big prizes! Check out the results here.
