Fresno Bass Members,

Here it is - All the latest!

2017 SCHEDULE IS NOW POSTED (See Schedule tab)

Members, We had a great turnout for this tourney and even though it was a tough bite, some of our members caught quite a few fish. Many took extra days in anticipation of getting a battle with one of those Clear Lake fat mamas. We even had members that didn't enter the event come up to fish. What wasn’t in the cards was an approaching storm and winds that reared its ugly and dangerous face. A couple of boats were caught off guard down south but chose wisely and got help getting back.

The actual rain didn’t show until Saturday, and the wind wasn’t that bad. It did make it difficult for Gary, but with Larry’s help holding that umbrella, he was able to get the results entered.

Saturday’s weights reflected most people stayed North due to wind reports. That included a total of seven tournaments on the lake that many had the same idea. Many struggled, but a few had the right mojo!

Nick Beck brought in a 16.16 bag to take day one lead.
Roger brought in a hog at 8.6 pounds! This ended up being big fish of the tourney! NICE!!!!!

There was only two other fish brought in over 5 pounds, and that was by Marvin and Harold. There were 11 limits brought in.

Sunday was partially cloudy in the AM with sun breaking through, making it a nice day. We also had a full moon.

There were 13 limits brought in. Danny Marshall brought in a huge bag 20.52 to take 2nd place. Everyone wondered if he was going to take the lead. If only his 1st day would’ve been better. He also had a 7.44 toad.

Bryan Coy and Gary Jue each also brought in one over 5 pound fish. Nick’s second day weight was a pound and a half lower than his first day dropping him to 3rd place. Danny and Nick’s weights were so close!

The big ‘winner winner – chicken dinner’ was Roy Champ, with a 31.45 pound total! Way to go Roy. This makes two Clear Lake wins in a row for Roy, with last year’s April at 30.93 and last year’s weights each day very similar. .

FOOM (First Out of the Money) was Roger Lockhart and a free tournament provided by Ed’s Marine and wishes to remind us that he offers us a 10% discount, so be sure to tell them you are with Fresno Bass when you take your boat in for service.

Next up June 12th, California Delta. Can’t wait, fat largemouths, docks to flip, tulles, grass, beautiful scenery. Getting excited! Last year, Ron A, both Scotts, and Jesse brought in the top four. Will they repeat? It took over 20 pounds to win…….

Please make sure to support our sponsors and tell them you are with our club when you visit them. Fisherman’s Warehouse, Valley Rod & Gun, Ed’s Marine, Pro Worms, B&W Resort, Cycle Art Racing, and thanks to Nick Beck.

See you at the club meeting, Tuesday, June 7th at same place, Yosemite Falls on Ashlan, meeting starts at 7 PM

The Board meeting will follow the Club Meeting next Tuesday, the 7th. (this will save having to travel the next day also)

With just 4 tournaments under our belts, the Angler of the year race is heating up with the top four, Roger, Joe, Nick, and Mike pretty close.....
