The Classic on November 14th and 15th was awesome. The fishing was challenging because the fish were everywhere so it was hard to get a pattern.  Mike McAdams and Jason Stone won the Classic with 17.65 lbs. Very close 2nd was John McCart and Dan Roberts with 17.55 lbs. Ben Gulleman and Joel Miles were 3rd with 15.80 lbs. Jim Nickell and Kevin Izzi were 4th with 15.40 and Allen Howard and Jeremy Wald were 5th with 12.25 lbs. Danny Hixson had the biggest bass caught at 4.15 lbs. Check out the pictures here.

After the results were in, it was determined that Mike McAdams won Angler of the Year and Joe Pangallo and Dan Roberts tied for biggest Bass of the year.

Congratulations to all our winners!!!

Now that the season is over, I want to recognize a few club members that went above and beyond to help the club. Steve Granger did a great job of keeping the stats and the money straight. He made updating the website so much easier for me. Ben Gulleman did a terrific job of making sure all the scheduling, communications and weigh ins went well.  Mike McAdams was always there to help at the weigh ins and kept the scale and tub. Mike was not supposed to do anything but fish this year but he stepped up for the club as usual. Tim Zeinner took care of all the trophies for the club which is so generous. Don't forget to thank these guys next time you see them. They are the ones that make eveything work so we can enjoy fishing in our club.

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.
