The 2017 season has started off with a bang as our Central Region headed over to Lake Don Pedro for the first BBT tournament of the year. We had a total of 62 boats brave the weather conditions that mother nature presented to them. Over 50 teams brought limits to the scales and we saw some good bags along with our first Big Ol Pig & Lunker Club fish of the tournament and season.  The team of  Bryan Cox & Kevin Davidson (with a little help from his son - watch video) took the top honors with the wining weight of 24.18lbs. Let's listen to see how they did it.

A week later our Mother Lode Region kicked off there season opener with even more extreme weather conditions at Lake Don Pedro. For this opener, we had 76 boats compete for the title of  champion and again we had a lot of 5 fish limits come to the scales with some pretty good weights. The grandfather and grandson team that topped the field is Dennis & Hayden Lee. If  you recognize their last name that is because Dennis' son and Hayden's dad is no other than Robert Lee. By the time he finished his B.A.S.S. career in 2005, Robert Lee, AKA "The General," had won three Invitationals and a tour event with the senior circuit - all of them on the California Delta. It looks like his son is well on his way to follow in his dad's footsteps. Lets listen to hear how they did it.

For our Coastal Region at Lake Nacimiento, we had to postpone the tournament because of the massive amount of rain that our area has gotten. The lake had a lot floating and submerged debris  caused by the  fires they had last year. So the probability of an angler getting hurt or causing damage to their boat was to high of a risk, so we made a decision to postpone that event to a later date.
