As a veteran of many B1 tournament events, Lawrence is eager to talk to Ben Woo about his plans to expand the series. Already one of the largest bass tournaments in Canada, the B1 is growing steadily, with events now in three locations across Quebec and Ontario.
Recorded live at the 2017 Toronto Sportsman Show, Ben Woo and his conservation director, fisheries biologist Jason Barnucz, also discuss what it takes to ensure that the hundreds of bass weighed are returned back to their habitat in good health.
