Fresno Bass Members,

Here it is - All the latest!

Fresno Bass Club Members,


Members and all,
Happy New Year and Tight Lines

Members, (important info at bottom of newsletter)

All, First of all, I apologize for last month’s error, sending the previous results, but, hey, I was having a great time in Shreveport, Louisiana and you did get the correct pictures. Besides, I was more worried about cottonmouths hanging out of low branches and alligators and spiders the size of your fist. So, I’m catching up by including March results also.



Tulloch was beautiful as always. We arrived during a ¾ moon and they had just raised the water level 5 feet so it was cold (gets it’s water from the bottom of New Melones Lake). It was 50 degrees 1st thing in the morning when some us got there going to 54, but each day warmed up and full sun got those bass thinking about one thing. It was a grind in practice, clear water and just a few fish and no beds. That all changed on tournament day. There were 14 fish over 3 pounds and 5 over 4 pounds as their big fish at weigh-in. There were 13 limits from 25 anglers (and some just didn’t weigh in). By the end of Sunday, the small area I found had 10 beds and many more that had been picked off earlier. It was a mix of finding them on docks, some reaction, and some on beds.

Congratulations to Bill Kunz. He was complaining along with the rest of us about the tough bite, but managed to get a limit on Saturday. What he figured out was golden though, bringing in a whopping 19.33 pounds with a 7.55 kicker! And his non-boater, Jose took third place!


Bill Kunz 1st Place with 19.33 Pounds! And the Big Fish of 7.55  !!!
