The BNBC Tuesday Night tournament series held a tournament on Lake Bloomington last night, and 15 teams came out to chase the bass on the lake. Conditions were more favorable than they have been with water temps much higher and air temps much more tolerable as well. The bass were still difficult for some of the field, however: someone always figures them out and last night was no exception. The team of Gregory and Gregory lapped the field with their catch!

The BNBC 2018 tourney opener was held on Spring Lake on 3-31-18, to kick off the 2018 schedule. This year tourneys are being scheduled on Saturdays to aid in tournament approvals with the targeted lakes, and to reduce conflicts with Sundaycluttered tournament schedules.

Seven hardy and optimistic teams showed up for the 1st tournament of the year on a windy, chilly, and threat of rain day. Take off was dry and wind wasn’t too heavy for start of the tournament, temps in the upper 30′s. Water temps at take off ranged around the low 40′s to the mid 40s, and was basically pretty clear. Fishing was slow for all the teams, but as is usually the case someone always figures it out, and this tournament was no exception. The team of Martoglio and Russell brought in a nice bag of 4 fish to win the event, and the team of the Umland brothers was 2nd.

1st Place-Martoglio/Russell-4 fish, #14.94 and BB of #4.87

2nd Place-Umland/Umland-3 fish, #9.66

This puts the team of Martoglio/Russell in 1s place for team of the year with the next tournament on Sangcris on 4-21-18 sign up at the meeting on 4-4-18 at Sam Lemans upstairs in the training room. Speaker at the meeting is from St. Jude’s Children’s hospital, so come out and sign up and get some great information on this wonderful charity. It is also a great time to get the 2018 membership taken care of prior to the tourney on 4-21-18.

Happy Easter to everyone and hope to see you at next meeting or next tournament, hope you’re catching them!
