Fresno Bass Members,
 

Here it is - All the latest!

2017 SCHEDULE IS NOW POSTED (See Schedule tab)

Fresno Bass Club Members,


HOLY MACKREL ! What a tournament we had! We changed the starting time from 6 AM to 5:30 to take advantage of the light, then we changed launch ramps due to Merced Irrigation blocking the Barrett’s South ramp. That ramp was difficult for that many boats (18). The launching took more time than usual, so the earlier start time helped get that last boat to the blast off line.

We got no rain for blastoff so that was good. When the rain started, it didn’t bring the huge winds but did help the bite, with many members stating they had limits by 8:30. That bite stayed great all day with our members bringing 22 limits back to the scales and of those, 14 limits over 10 pounds! Whoa BABY!!!!! We only had 1 blank and one member tossed his fish declining to weigh-in.

The bite was so good that many were talking about going back up there to continue the slug-fest.

This tournament decided who was to take the crown of Angler of the Year, and that award goes to:
Joe Alanis with 478 points, overtaking Mike Brossard by two points! Another tight race where not performing at the top all year and not attending all the meetings makes a huge impact! Congratulations to Joe, well deserved! (however, if Joe doesn’t make the December meeting…..I might have congratulated too soon?)



Big Fish of the Year was taken by Roger Lockhart with his 8.6 pound toad from Clear Lake in May.



Winner-Winner- Chicken Dinner : Mike Brossard jumped to the lead taking 1st place with an impressive15.99 pounds AND 4.28 Big Fish! That new Skeeter brought him some great luck, even his non-boater Tracy brought in 11.86 (and 1st out of the money award). Congratulations.



Ron Red took second place with 14.45 and Bryon Taylor brought up third with 12.80







Attached is the Mcclure results and the year to date. The YTD is color-coded to reflect entries to the TOC (see the code key at the bottom) showing the raw numbers and the 2 throw outs. Remember, this is the final Angler of the year (year end) points.



___________________________________________________________________________________________________

Next up December 11th , McClure TOC tournament. Back at Barretts South. Blast off at safe light, weigh-in at 3 PM. Sunrise at 7:06. (Nov 6th was daylight savings) lake level has been staying about the same and these couple of storm should help, so we should be good. Getting excited…….

TOC info: Remember the rules state “The TOC location will be off limits Monday – Friday prior to the TOC. Prefishing on the Saturday before is allowed.”
Be sure and bring the TOC option money to the December club meeting. ($40 all in, if you want side bets, go for it)
