A Canton man has won a national bass fishing tournament.

Drew Gregory won the 2022 Yamaha Rightwaters Bassmaster Kayak Series at Grand Lake powered by TourneyX with a five-bass fish limit of 91.5 inches, according to a news release from the Bass Anglers Sportsman Society, or B.A.S.S.

He anchored his bag with a 20.25-inch bass, beating second-place angler Daniel Maffei by more than 8 inches and third-place angler Mark Pendergraf by more than 9 inches.

It was his first Bassmaster Kayak Series event victory, a win that earned him a $3,400 check. The event took place in Grove, Oklahoma.

“I said I was going to win this tournament and figure it out,” Gregory said after the event. “It has been my plan all year to fish four of the five to have a chance for the (Old Town) Angler of the Year title. I have a kayak I designed that is coming out really soon for Crescent Kayaks and it is pretty crazy to win this right before this boat is coming out.”
