7th Annual Seven Coves Bass Club Fall Bass Classic A Success!

The 7th Annual Seven Coves Bass Club Fall Bass Classic benefiting Montgomery County Youth Services – Bridgeway Shelter was a great success! We had 48 angler 2-man teams that fished a post-monsoon Lake Conroe due to the 5 inches of rain the night before. Saturday morning before angler take-off, SCBC member Terry Reed led us in prayer, followed by Ms. Jordan Knight as she proudly sang the National Anthem. With temperatures in the high 60’s and a 10 mile an hour east wind, the anglers were ready to take off from Papa’s On The Lake.

Due to the support of the local community and businesses, we were blessed by a large array of raffle & live auction items. Those items included CastAway rods, Profound Outdoor tackle packs, coolers, gift cards to local businesses, and even an autographed guitar signed by the Zac Brown Band!

Derek Taylor also presented the winner of the early prize drawing of the Daiwa Tatula rod & reel to the angler team of Jesse Thornton and Bobby Del Monaco.

North Central Region – Stop #3 Lake Ray Roberts

September 28th, 2014 Texas B.A.S.S. Nation North Central Region – Stop #3 Lake Ray Roberts The North Central Region held its 3rd tournament of 2014, at Lake Ray Roberts. Our original plans to hold this event at Eagle Mountain Lake were derailed two different times due to Mother Nature.  Ray Roberts was approximately six feet low at take off time; however, the lake was very accessible and was abundant with grass, wood, and all types of structure ripe to hold all those monster fish. Fall fishing can be hit or miss, and it was definitely a miss on this day with none of our anglers bringing in five fish limits. Good news abounds, as we finish out our season on beautiful Lake Limestone on October 19th, where the fishing seems to be a bit better from recent reports. The tournament got off to a good start, with all the anglers coming by in procession for the boat check and take off! Thanks to everyone for getting into line in their respective places, as that was very efficiently done. Safelight came and the Tournament Director – Dan Watson called for boat #1, and it was off to various places for the anglers. Robert Brown with Tarrant Christian Bass Club hauled in the heavy sack for the day, three fish weighing 10.32 lbs. Robert also had a good kicker fish, which helped him secure the win. Robert fished the edge of grass with a Zoom Horny Toad, where he reported bites were few and far between. Robert credits his Falcon Cara 7’10” Bobby’s Perfect Frog Rod, coupled with a … [Continue reading]
