The 2017 Strike King Open was held on Long Lake out of Willow Bay. The fishing was excellent and some giant largemouth were brought to the scales. This tournament requires the use of Strike King lures only and this year’s event had 34 teams competing. 

All teams entered were given a great bag of products, hats and stickers from Strike King. They were also generous in offering an additional $1,000 to go towards the payouts. The Spokane Bass Club would like to thank Strike King and Greg Mccowan for the support this year.
