The Fishing Finale: Yamaha Turkey Bass Smash 2018

Brackettville, Texas (June 18, 2018) – Did you catch Part 1 of the 2018 Yamaha Turkey Bass Smash last week?  If you missed all the shenanigans and laughter, you can watch it from anywhere right HERE on Outdoor Action TV!

Now that you’re caught up and the turkey hunting challenge was completed in last week’s episode, Team Middleton has the lead going into the fishing challenge, but right on his team’s heels are two of the best bass anglers in the nation.  Watch here to find out how Brandon Palaniuk feels going into this part of the Smash in third place!

With all three teams at the ramp on Lake Amistad with their bass boats in tow to start the final round of competition. There was plenty of boat ramp smack talk going on about who would catch the most and largest, but once again it was high winds that were going to play havoc on the day and cause the teams to be limited to fishing certain areas on the famed Lake Amistad.

This event was a great example of sportsmanship, comradery, and showcased the products on both the Yamaha Marine and Yamaha Outdoor side that Yamaha offers. Talks for next year’s event are already underway and we will just have to wait and see if this year’s winning team can defend their title!
