Fresno Bass Members,

Here it is - All the latest!

New Meeting Location:

Denny's at Blackstone and Herndon

2018 SCHEDULE IS NOW POSTED (See Schedule tab)

Fresno Bass Club Members,


Members and all,
Happy New Year and Tight Lines

Attached are the Pine Flat Results.

The next BIG event is the annual Banquet! Always a great time to get together. This is part of what being in a club is all about. Doors open at 6 PM, with dinner served at 7 PM.

This year we are doing something different. Besides having the usual great raffle prizes (which all raffle items support the club), and door prizes,

The newest thing is, our newest sponsor, Sportsmen’s Warehouse, has stepped up and will have a ‘Wall of Goods’ raffle for some bigger prizes (who wouldn’t want a new gun or a high end rod & reel?).

Bring some extra cash, as you’ll want a chance at some of these!

The Banquet with no host bar (you pay for drinks) is free to members, $30.00 for non-members, new members that joined this year, and spouses (basically anybody that wasn’t a paid member in 2017)

Big Shout Out to Marvin Stewart for all the work and time getting Christmas trees and then having Ron Red, Gary Jue, Scott Smith and myself to take them to Pine Flat and Hensley lakes for habitat improvement. Yea, Fresno Bass Club!

President Joe Alanis
Vice President Robert Rodriguez

Secretary Gary Jue
Sargent at Arms Larry Lutz

Webmaster/Media Morgan Swisher

Well, Pine Flat. It was a beautiful day and people said they caught fish early and late. Roger was able to find the secret to take the honors of Winner with almost ten pounds. Last 5 years, no one broke the 9 pound weight! Congratulation, Roger. The big fish was 2.43 caught by Jose, right in line with past big fish on this lake at this time of year of 2.45 in ’16, 2.01 in ’15, 2.0 in’14, and 2.48 in ’13.

17 anglers fished, 11 limits, with the smallest limit 6.45lbs, no blanks. One angler reported catching 3 limits but all the same sizes and couldn’t cull up as the bigger fish were in the morning, some reported they didn’t get their last fish until right before weigh in. Jigs, Hula Grubs, and plastics.

1st Roger Lockhart 9.77 lbs

2nd Ron Red 9.61 lbs

3rd Jesse Perez 9.33 lbs

Jose Guzman Big Fish 2.43 lbs

At the November meeting I discussed fire extinguishers. If you have in your boat, home, RV a Kidde fire extinguisher, please note: The ones with plastic handles and push buttons have been recalled. I sent requests for 2 extinguishers in, have already received one replacement. They have you put the old one in the shipping box for return pre-paid.

I had a push button one in my boat and a plastic handle one in my house. These are recalled. Please check yours. The website tells you everything you need to know to get a replacement.

FYI: Bass Lake goes to requiring permit year round:
