The tournament was a fitting tribute to a Western and National Bass icon, Mr. Don Lee!  Throughout the tournament many of the anglers relayed stories of their history of Don and tales of how he helped them with their careers and hobby.

At the end of the tournament Don’s widow Peggy and daughter Amy presented the two California TBF High School Champions, Luke Johns and Brandon Burkey, with their Scholarship Prize in Don’s name.
