Crooked Lake


Welcome back Darrell ! It was nice to see you back fishing with us and I know the rest of us also were glad to see you. On this last tournament of 2014 6 teams showed up to fish. Joe and Greg actually pre-fished Friday since all the pressure was on them to stay in first place and hopefully take AOTY for 2014. With Mike and Steve 11 points behind it would have taken Mike and Steve to place high in the win column and have a big bass and for Joe and Greg to place low in the win column. Well Joe and Greg placed low in the win column, but Mike and Steve placed lower. So it is my pleasure to congratulate Joe and Greg for winning AOTY for the 2014 season! Funny thing happened during our meeting, Joe informed me after all the years of fishing together I have been misspelling his name. And now that he is getting a plaque he decided it was the proper time so I would not have it wrong on his plaque.

First Place with 5 bass weighing 9.62 lbs goes to Malcolm and Josh

Second Place with 3 bass weighing 5.19 lbs goes to Scott and Dick

Third Place with 2 bass weighing 4.53 lbs goes to Darrell and Jason

Big Bass weighing 2.69 lbs goes to Darrell and Jason

50/50 winner goes to Greg.       We raised $285.00 for the Classic after starting it late in the season.

We had our end of year meeting to review, discuss and vote on anything anyone wanted to vote on. We also picked the lakes for 2015 which will be posted on the website. It was brought to a motion that SPPB start enforcing the Classic Rules which have been in place since day 1, starting in 2015. It was voted for starting in 2015. We made an adjustment on the qualification number as follows. If there are 10 scheduled tournaments you must participate in 7 tournaments to qualify for the classic. If there are 11 tournaments you must participate in 8 tournaments to qualify for the classic. There are exemptions which are on the  Classic Rule page. Next on the membership rules we voted to eliminate rule # 7.

At this time I would like to say Thank You to Steve, Darrell and Jason for their continued help with SPPB and to all the members who have also helped with our club. Hope everyone has a great holiday season and I am already looking forward to the 2015 season.

Lake Istokpoga


Welcome to the Dick and Scott Show! Just goes to show you when you are at the right place at the right time the fishing can be great. For the rest of us it was so so. Who would have ever thought on Istokpoga only one team would have a limit? And 4 out of the 8 teams zeroed, including the first place team. And the other first place team did not show?

Darrell is doing much better and promised to be back for the last tournament. Jason fished with his better half Nicole who had her first taste of tournament fishing and enjoying this very nice fall day. Too bad the bite was slow. Joe fished with sub Brandon and John fished with Bill as his sub.

First Place with 5 bass weighing 22.60 lbs goes to Scott and Dick

Second Place with 4 bass weighing 9.10 lbs goes to Gary and Eric

Third Place with 3 bass weighing 7.09 lbs goes to John and Bill

Big Bass weighing 6.92 lbs goes to Scott and Dick

50/50 winner goes to Mike which went to Steve since Mike forgot to put gas cap back on boat. Yes you know what happened once we started driving.

Next and last tournament of the 2014 tournament season is Crooked Lake at Bob’s Landing on Nov. 15th, 2014.  Ramp fee is $7.00 now from what I heard. We will be having our end of year meeting after the tournament. We will be choosing the lakes for next year and voting on a couple of very important issues pertaining to following the rules outlined already, adjusting classic qualifying tournaments that have to be fished based on number of scheduled tournaments, and anything else you would like to bring up?

See You At The Ramp,
