June 8-11, 2017 | YMUS

The annual Skeeter Owners’ Bass Tournament held in Lake Fork Texas recently concluded with yet another record attendance of 2,350 anglers and 1,192 Skeeter boats in attendance!

This annual family event continues to grow in popularity and has truly become an iconic event for both the Yamaha and Skeeter brands.

The winner of this year’s event, Mr. David Laine from Horseshoe Bay Texas, took home the grand prize of a brand new Skeeter FX 20 equipped with a Yamaha 250 SHO for his catch of 9.36lbs, with Marty Thomas from Millsap Texas taking home the second prize of a brand new Viking Side-by-Side!

“We couldn’t be happier with the response to our annual owners’ tournament,” said Jeff Stone, Sr. Vice President/General Manager of Skeeter Boats’ Kilgore Texas factory and corporate headquarters. “Our staff conducted over 340 demo rides and also managed to cook over 2,200lbs of brisket truly making this a Yamaha and Skeeter family event!”
