Bakersfield's Premiere Bass Club
Bakersfield bass made the trip to Pine flat for a little tournament fun. 19 Paid entries and only 17 could remember the directions to the lake or how to set their alarm clock. The weather was brisk and breezy in the morning and warm by 10:00 am. 5th place first out of the money was new members Derrick Fry and Kenny McMurray of McMurray's Baits Fame. 4th place was Tracy Bright and Jeff Harrington with 7.98 lbs. 3rd Place Tommy Hurst and Ron Rogerson with 8.02 lbs. 2nd place was Kenneth Cleveland and Clayton Rogerson with 9.05 lbs. 1st place was another clinic put on by Joey Roland and Rick Roland with 9.75 lbs. Congrats to all for a great tournament. Also would like to welcome new members Joe Sullivan and David Kendig on their first tournament. Thanks to Blake Wood, Dustin Basinger and Darren Palmer for a great job on the scales. A big thank you to Dennis Polm for ferrying the fish back to safe water.
So the trend continues every tournament this has been first time winners with the club and yet to have a repeat winner. 6 of the 7 tournaments were won by a family team of some combination. A husband and wife team. Two teams with cousins fishing together and three Father and Son teams. Family and fun fishing seem to go together. So we are still waiting to see who is going to be the first team to get a second win. Well now that wait is over Joey and Rick Roland can now lay claim too the only team so far this year to win two tournaments. This year looks like the year of many different winners and young and experienced. This tournament seemed to favor the experienced veterans. Congrats to all the winners.
Bakersfield Bass meets the first Thursday of each month @ Rusty's pizza 10824 Rosedale Hwy. @ 7:00 pm. Bakersfield Bass can be contacted through this web page using the "Contact tab" firstname.lastname@example.org or Facebook @ Bakersfield bass.
