A new bass tournament series will start this year on Lake St. Clair. It will be called Cash For Bass. The series is the brain child of Terry Melvin of Lunch Money Lures and Steve Eisenmenger. It is planned to be a small 5 tournament schedule with a championship tournament at the end of the season. One of the title sponsors and founders is KD Outdoors. The group put together the Cash For Bass tournaments to offer more of a low key and fun tournament experience as opposed to the high pressure, and at times high temper tournaments that exist.
