Fresno Bass Members,

Here it is - All the latest!

2017 SCHEDULE IS NOW POSTED (See Schedule tab)

September is that awkward month where the temperature of the air and water fluctuates as well as the fish’s moods. Saturday, the Delta was loaded with boats, pounding every piece of structure they could find and punching every leaf of hyacinth. They had been doing a lot of spraying but there was still some to be had. One team of the Don Lee memorial had 27 pounds! The weather was beautiful but we didn’t have big tides, it seemed, although we had 3 foot difference, more than we will have in October. We started out with an incoming with a peak at 7:05 AM and then low at 1:36 (at Georgiana). The Astro table showed a 59 with the peak between 1:39PM and 4:05PM with the moon almost full. (So, there’s all the information to help you explain why you didn’t win this one, Har Har Har)
Seven People broke 10 pounds. Robert Rodriguez was the leading non-boater with 7.58. Mark led the pack by a pound.

Mark with 1st Place 11.21 pounds

(No Picture Available) Jose Guzman 2nd Place with 10.23 Pounds

3rd Place Joe Alanis with 10.17

Big Fish Ron Barksdale with a 5.26 to take the coveted Big Fish Pot (He was also just 0.01 from tying Joe for 3rd)
