Congratulations to Vince Burt & Mark Werner for bringing in an impressive 17.78 lbs  and edging out Justin Garrett & Gary Anderson who had 17.66 lbs.  The Ray Hubbard Bass Club held our annual Championship tournament November 8-9 on Richland Chambers. The payouts for this no entry fee tournament is from money collected from memberships and entry fees throughout the regular season. 25 boats qualified but only 19 were able to make it out to fish with us. Practice for the tournament went really well for most teams and big bags were expected at the tournament. Then Mother Nature reared her head. A big cold front along with a strong cold north wind greeted us on Saturday and made the fishing extremely tough on Day 1. Then Sunday dawned with blue bird skies and almost no wind after a cold front. Not exactly perfect conditions. Fishing was very tough for almost everyone. Coming from way back after day 1 to win were long time RHBC veterans Vince Burt and Mark Werner with a 2 day total of 17.78 pounds.  Justin Garrett and Gary Anderson finished 2nd only .12 lbs out of first.  3rd place was gathered in by David Mulkey and Tom Brouillette who finished with 16.19 lbs.  4th place went to one of our father/son teams, Jack and Fly Scheel with 15.69 lbs.

Congratulations to Ronnie Pettis & Tony Climer Jr. for bringing in an impressive 16.06 lbs on what was a beautiful day to be on the water.  Little Tony Jr also caught the tournament big bass with a nice 6.83 lb hog.  George Dorman & James Henderson took 2nd Place with an impressive 15.63 lbs.  3rd Place went to Kenny & Howard Bunch with 13.30 lbs. Tony Schnurr & Jay Messersmith continued their strong showing this year with 13.26 lbs for 4th Place.  5th Place went to Jason Hunnicutt & Travis Reaves with 13.16 lbs.  Everyone reported great action as the fish were plentiful but few had any true size.

The Angler of the Year race is getting interesting.  There are some really consistent sticks at the top.  Justin Garrett, Jason Hunnicutt and Tony Schnurr continue to inspire us.

There were 29 boats and congrats to all the guys that cashed checks and thanks to everyone that came out.
