The Grand Lake Extravaganza, sponsored by the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, is in it’s 4th week, with over 60 prize winning tagged bass already having been caught.

But here’s the good news…that means there are still over 400 prize winning bass swimming around in Grand Lake just waiting to make you a winner!

According to Tad Jones, Executive Director of the Grand Lake Association, “Monday morning the last few weeks have been extremely busy as people who have caught tagged bass over the weekend will call in the first thing Monday to see what they’ve won.”

And, there are likely to be a many, many more winners by this coming Monday morning as the 2014 National Bass Anglers Association National Championship has brought hundreds of anglers to Grand Lake from all over the country for their Spring Classic running from April 22nd through the 26th out of Wolf Creek Park in Grove.

A few people have caught multiple winners, proving the age old saying that it ‘pays to go fishing’.

And, there have been several tagged fish caught where the ‘catcher’ had not previously registered for the Extravaganza. So, make sure you are registered if your going to be fishing at Grand Lake.

Some of the latest winners include:

  • Curtis Warren who won a Patricia Island Golf and Gaming package worth $250
  • Thomas Canady has now caught 3-tagged bass – wait, WHAT? – with prizes from Indigo Sky and Hard Rock Hotel and Casino
  • Elven Mitchell won $100 from the Grand Lake Radio Network, $50 from Midwest Loans and $100 from Edward Jones Investments, Nathan Horn and Mike Vaughn
