Fresno Bass Club Members,


Members and all,
Happy New Year and Tight Lines

Members, (important info at bottom of newsletter)

Attached are the results

McClure was on fire, just not the Big Ones LOL. But everyone caught fish, everyone caught limits. Although chilly in the morning, it was a beautiful day. Pre-fishing was off the charts, but on tournament day, the larger fish were in hiding. (didn’t help a tournament on Thursday and another on Saturday pounded the water). There was a real challenge for Angler of the Year between Ron and Roger, But Ron figured out the bite and took the coveted honors! CONGRATULATIONS!

1st Ron Red 10.73

2nd Joe Alanis 10.10

3rd Mark Corrente 9.06
