Top Bass Press Release. September 15, 2015. There were 2 makeshift cages discovered on Balsam Lake at the TOP BASS Classic (one Friday prior to the event and one Saturday morning during the event) and brought to the attention of the Top BassTournament Director. In consideration for the safety of the fish, they were released back into Balsam Lake. We are currently consulting with the appropriate professionals and are taking this situation very seriously. We will be exhausting every option that is available to us at this time. Please be patient while we deal with this professionally. We will provide updates on this matter when they are made available to us. Thank you for your continued support, TOP BASS Ted
