Troy Norman of Fort Frances and Jay Samsal of Kenora blasted down Rainy Lake this morning as part of the Day 1 boat launch that kicked off the 25th-annual Fort Frances Canadian Bass Championship at the Sorting Gap Marina. The 2016 and 2017 champs are part of a 98-team field that will be vying for the $25,000 winners’ cheque over the next three days. Weigh-ins go at 3:30 p.m. both today and tomorrow but will start at 3 p.m. on Saturday. Make sure to get down to the Sorting Gap to cheer all of the anglers on!
