There are two youth fundraisers this summer with the Bracket Bash in association with Cashion Rods they are May 4th Sodus Bay and May 18th Oneida Lake. There is also an addition this year of the high school team trail with two events on May 11th on Cayuga Lake and May 25th on Sodus Bay. The youth also have their state championships on June 1st on Cayuga Lake for the junior state Championship and June 2nd for the High School State Championship on Cayuga Lake
With the great schedule that we have I believe the weight record will be broken for sure. The smallmouth bite will be amazing on the river and the harbor. I hope that you come out this summer and support the NEW YORK BASS NATION in full force.
