The pre-fishing has already started for Kenora Bass International. Matt Park at Lake of the Woods Sports Headquarters talks about his early choice to win it all.

"I gotta go with my boss, Bryan Gustafson. He's on a roll. He's coming off a big win in Fort Frances. He's got lots of momentum," said Park, with reference to Gustafson's victory at last month's Canadian championships.

The tournament starts Thursday morning, and the final weigh-ins will be Saturday evening under the Whitecap Pavilion.

The Kids KBI will go the same three days as the main tournament, except it gets started a bit later, with the kids dropping a line at 10 a.m. each day.
