2014 Big Bass Tournament This year’s first place winner will be paid $500. Second place pays $250 and third place pays $100.

El Salto Trip 2013

Date Posted: 9/5/2012
Please join us for our annual trip to Lake El Salto in Mexico March 1 through March 5 2013. You do not need a friend to come with you; you will make friends with the guys already going. If you have not been bass fishing in Mexico you are missing out. Days of 50 to 100 fish are common and big fish over 5 lbs are so frequent you won't be able to keep track. The last two years we have had about 12 guys come on the trip. 6 of the guys have gone both years and signed up…

Big Bass Tournament 2012: Winner

Date Posted: 5/4/2012
Yes, it is a single winner. Mr. Larry Morgan of Oklahoma took all three places in this year’s Big Bass Contest. Larry’s big fish came from two perennial all star lakes, San Saba Waco Creek Ranch and Longbranch Yates Place. We never dreamed that a single member would win all three places, but Larry is a great fisherman and was at the right places at the right time. All three fish were witnessed by fellow member Paul Bryan and were caught on a weighted fluke.  Larry did not want to completely divulge his lure presentation, but simply caught lots of…
