A total of 9 boats- Only 5 of our originals showed up and the other four boats came from the guys that fish the Tuesday nighters at Caesars Creek. I want to thank those fisherman for coming and hope that they continue to fish with us. Their courtesy and respect was very appreciated.
Although, weather and water conditions seemed perfect. Fishing was tough, only having one boat weigh in a limit.
Joe P. finished 1st with 5.85lbs
Frank Bowen finished 2nd with 4.40lbs
Although, the Turners weighed in a nice 2.55lbs. smallmouth, big bass came from Mike & Larry weighing in a 3.15lbs. largemouth.
Tournament lake schedule change for September 30th at Bischoff. By popular demand!
September 30th is going to be at Brookville Lake. We wanted to have it at Rocky Fork, but Todd Warren is having an open on that day and he averages around 30 boats.
We're scheduled for our last tournament before the classic on the Ohio River. We could make that change to Rocky Fork on October 7th? Afterwards, discussing what format and $$ for our Brookville Lake Classic on October 21st
Discussing the Classic being 2-day $100.00 a boat or keeping the format the same as any other tournament.
Hope to see you at Brookville on the 30th!

About the Club
Back in the early days of tournament fishing, there was a rapidly growing interest in the sport. Information was limited on how, where and when to catch Bass. One of the best ways to learn was by belonging to a Bass club. By knowing this, some avid fisherman in our area planned and organized a Bass club. That club became known as Southern Ohio Bassmasters. The object of creating the club was for members to enjoy the sport by learning from other fisherman while at the same time competing and enjoying the benefits of being in a Bass club. Many club members, both previous and presently active, have benefited over the years by having been a part of S.O.B. The same concepts still apply now as they did in the beginning. The doors to the future are always open to new members and as always old members are always welcome back. Take a look at our By-Laws here.
