2018 SCHEDULE IS NOW POSTED (See Schedule tab)

Fresno Bass Club Members,
Results of November McClure:

What a tough bite!

Last year’s newsletter read:

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.

What a difference! Reading this, I told my wife if I didn’t have a good limit by 11 AM, that I was going to pack up and head home for a birthday party for my Granddaughter. (I was still going to help her celebrate on her actual birthday on the following Thursday). At 10:30 I only had 4 fish with 5.5 pounds, so I thought I would never make it up, so I went home. Mike Brossard had 16.99 pounds last year.
After seeing these results, maybe I should have stayed – Ha Ha. Gotta practice that ‘never give up’ motto….

Sixteen of the twenty six anglers had limits, BUT, half the field didn’t even beat 7 pounds.

With such a tough bite, it’s even more amazing the win by Joe Alanis with 8.84 pounds! Great Job, Joe!

Second went to Mark Corrente with 8.54

Third went to Mike Brossard with 8.50 AND Big fish of 3.25!

Sorry about that.
