Fresno Bass Members,

Here it is - All the latest!

2016 SCHEDULE IS NOW POSTED (See Schedule tab)

Transition. That’s what they call it. That special time after the spawn and before the big feed. Some leftover still trying to span, some too tired from the spawn, some starting to eat reaction baits. Most of us that have fished Lake Tulloch before, look forward to plucking fat smallies and blacks off beds, checking out those million dollar homes, flipping docks, enjoying the great weather.

Wednesday the lake temperature was 71 degrees, it rained on Friday, and Sunday the water dropped to 65. Friday was a full moon, and on Sunday, it was shining bright as we blasted off. Before Sunday, there was current in the river coming from New Melones, but that ceased on Sunday. Many reported that the first bite was the best, and some even the first cast. Everyone complained about the little smallies and red eyes, reporting catching a bunch. On the plus side, those smallies can get big, whereas, those red eyes………(see end of email for information about red eyes) We still brought in 12 limits.

Congratulations to returning member, Ken Eddy, taking the honors with a great sack of 11.65 pounds. Bringing up a so very close second was Roger Lockhart with 11.63. Roger got the big fish of the tournament with a 4.96, just missing the big progressive pot. Third was Bob “Mr. Tulloch” Tratar with 9.88. Robert Rodriguez took the Non-boater award with 8.71.

Ken Eddy 11.65 lbs

FOOM (First Out of the Money) was Jesse Perez 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.

With just 4 tournaments under our belts, the Angler of the year race is heating up with the top three, Joe and Roger tied, and Scott 6 points away in third.

Next up May 21st and 22nd, Clear Lake- Konocti Vista. Can’t wait, fat largemouths, docks to flip, tulles, grass, beds, beautiful scenery. Some of our members have won decent pots at the casino. Getting excited!
