A breakdown of payouts that will be up for grabs at the Kingston Canadian Open of Fishing.

The inaugural event set an all time Canadian record, as the event filled within 3 days of the opening registration and raised over $22,000 for Soldiers On as Derek Strub took home $40,000 in cash and Stuart Naylor was awarded a $20,000 Lund Boat package. The 2010 Kingston Canadian Open of Fishing paid out a total of $112,500 in cash and well over $50,000 in prizes.

The Canadian Open of Fishing will team up Pro anglers with co-anglers for a three-day bass tournament on Lake Ontario. The Pros will be competing for $126,500 in cash a 126.5% Pro payout. This year's winning Pro angler will be walking away with $50,000 in cash, and the top co-angler will receive a $20,000 Lund/Mercury Boat package.
