Fresno Bass Members,
 

Here it is - All the latest!

New Meeting Location:

Denny's at Blackstone and Herndon


2017 SCHEDULE IS NOW POSTED (See Schedule tab)

Fresno Bass Club Members,


Members, Attached are the results from our Delta tournament.


9 limits from 32 anglers- The bite was tough to say the least.

The storms that were rolling through and then the winds on Friday kept the water more muddy than it already was from the winter runoff. But the water temps were 59 to 62 in places.
Sunday’s tournament started with a 5 mile per hour blast off due to the fog that rolled in, but the day turned out to be sunny and beautiful. Some bass had moved up to bed and the protected areas was the place to be as the tides really move the water and the lack of hyacinth and tulles to give hiding places stumped many anglers. Fishing as usual was not what to expect.



And the BIG Winner is:
1st Danny Marshall 21.59 and he got the Big fish of 7.50




2nd Place went to :
2nd Mark Corrente 20.41


And 3rd Place,
3rd Nick Beck 15.05



Huge Thank you to Mike Brossard for stepping up to be the weigh-in Director.

Next up May 20th and 21st , 2 day tournament at Clear Lake, at Konocti Vista Casino and hotel.
Clear Lake has lots of water, with lots of new area to fish in the tulles. If you think the spawn is tied to the moons, we won’t be near the full or new moons, but there are huge fish to be had. Pre and Post spawn fish everywhere.
Blast off at safe light. weigh-in at 3 PM. Sunrise at 5:46.

Getting excited…….

At our meeting, I discussed fish care. One of the items was about culling tags that some of us use. Unfortunately, some people have been inserting the clip along the lower jaw which ends up tearing the soft tissue.

Manufactures have tried various clips, that tend to fall off


There is a new one out that looks promising, but it’s $50.00. I’ve asked if I can buy just the clips, but no reply yet. There are some organizations that are starting to ban piercing.


But, by piercing the bass’s mouth in the center, through the harder tissue, tearing is eliminated.




The other fish care item I discussed, was my review of a new Aerator from Rapala that I have used on the last two tournaments. It allowed me to not run my recirculators full time, saving the drain on my cranking battery. The fish were really active at the end of the day after having them in all day. I think this will also help in summer and night tourneys. I was using a regular bubbler, but the stone kept coming off and the hose was getting tangled up with culling cords.
Here is the ad:
Delivering compact performance and big-time operation, the Rapala Floating Aerator provides anglers with a portable means of keeping their catch or their bait as healthy as possible. Built with an air release stone at the bottom, the Rapala Floating Aerator gently mixes air into the water as if floats along the surface.


Powered by 3 “C” batteries, the Rapala Floating Aerator is water/switch activated and delivers 18-hours of continuous run time or 36 hours of run time on 15-minute intervals. Made to aerate 1.5L (0.4Gal) of water per minute, the Rapala Floating Aerator provides a convenient and functional means of keeping fish happy and healthy.
