We strive to have as much fun fishing as we possibly can while still being competitive.  Our Youth Club is designed to allow our future anglers an opportunity to go Bass Fishing, all the while learning to improve their skills as Future Anglers.


We are now meeting at the SOUTH LYON HIGH SCHOOL at 11 Mile Road and Pontiac Trail, in South Lyon, (Map to the School) for the April 15th Meeting at 7 pm. Use the Main entrance off 11 Mile Rd.

Our Youth Club normally meets the third Wednesday of each month from 7-9 pm.  
We are hoping to start using the High School as our regular meeting location, we should know by our next meeting.Right now it is scheduled for February 18th, which is the third Wednesday of the month.  We will be doing a virtual paper tournament in preparation for the upcoming season.  We will also be picking the lakes for the youth tournaments.   We will start at 7 pm and finish up at 9 pm  Other club Members and all High School club members are welcome to come out and sit it. We encourage all of our youth members to attend. Remember, one of the requirements you are required to make is at least 2 of the 5 meetings, to meet your 25% minimum requirement to fish the Junior Bassmaster State Championship.

Marcel Veenstra Seminar for Michigan Bass Anglers
Marcel Veenstra put on yet another great seminar for our Youth club and some adult club members.  The seminar was hosted by the Northfield Township Fire Department in Whitmore Lake.  Marcel spent over two hours answering questions, showing the group the latest baits and talking about his 2014 season on Lake St. Clair.  He gave the boys tips on the newest baits as well as some old stand byes.  He talked about how to approach inland lakes and how to dissect them for tournament day.  Marcel always does a great job.  If you ever need a great guide for many of the inland lakes or most of the Great Lakes, contact Marcel.
2014 Club Classic was a tough one...
The 2014 Michigan Bass Angles Club Classic was a really tough tournament.  We fished the Portage Chain of Lakes on a brisk Sunday the first weekend of October this year.  The weather had changed and the bite got tough.  Only 5 keepers were brought to the scales between the 5 top anglers.  Dan Wagner took the honors with a total of 3.27 pounds for his two fish.  Dave Gutuskey brought in two keepers for 2.89 pounds.  Gary Emerson managed one keeper for 1.53 pounds.  Brian Lobkovich, a prospective new member fished the tournament as a Marshall and managed to brong in 3.73 pounds with two fish.  Tyler Leggat, a MBA Junior Bassmaster who was also fishing as a Marshal, brought in one fish for 1.64 pounds.  Everyone is really looking forward to the 2015 season and hoping things pick up.
Michigan Bass Anglers Seminar Featuring Devon Banks and Michael Carver was a big success
We had a great seminar at the January 2014 Junior Bassmaster meeting.  Turnout was great.  Devon and Michael both discussed tournament fishing, sponsorship opportunities, fishing Lake St. Clair as well as several other great topics. Devon and Michael are both local pros who fish a lot of the national level tournament like FLW and Bass Pro Shop.  The guys opened up and answered questions our JBM's had for them.  There were no limits.  We want to thank them both for taking the time to come out and share their vast experiences with everyone.

B.A.S.S. NationJunior Bassmasters Northern Divisional at Francis Case Lake.
The 2013 Junior Bassmasters Northern Divisional was a tough one. The weather was good other than the 100+ degree temperatures all week.  It was brutal.  Our very own Chase Serafin managed to find some fish during practice and was looking forward to tournament day.  Then when the big day arrived, the water got slick after the first hour and that seemed to shut the fish right down.  Only a few of the adult anglers managed to catch fish during the tournament.  Only 5 fish were brought to the scales by the 16 junior anglers.  Chase and the other Junior Michigan Angler, David Aukema could not locate a keeper, and that was not for lack of trying.  The two of them fish hard all day, but the lake just did not cooperate.  We still want to congratulate both young anglers for making it to the Junior Bassmasters Northern Divisional in the first place, they should be very proud of them selves.  For more information about the tournament  CLICK HERE

Victor Cole, one of our newest club members recently fished the 2013 Michigan B.A.S.S. Nation State Championship in Escanaba and managed to place in  respectable 6th place to make the 2014 State Team.  This was Victors very first Michigan State Championship tournament as a Michigan Bass Anglers club member.  During the two day competition, Victor brought in a nice 31.25 pounds of smallmouth bass with the largest bass of the two day event at 5.99 pounds. We are very proud of Victor and look forward to him fishing the Northern Divisional in 2014.  Victor should be proud of himself.

Chase Serafin wins 2013 Michigan BASS Nation Junior State Championship
For the 3rd year in a row, one of our Junior Members has taken First Place in one of the two age groups at the Michigan BASS Nation Junior State Championship.  Chase Serafin managed to pull a very respectable 15.66 pounds of Smallmouth Bass form Lake St. Clair on Sunday June 30th.  Chase took first place in the 15-18 year old age group, while one of our newest members, Gunner Wilson took 2nd place in the 11-14 age group with 11.72 pounds, just ove a pound out of first place.  The entire Junior club showed up in the new Club Shirts and and did a great job of representing the club. Almost all of the boys caught fish again this year. They made us very proud again this year.  Chase will be going to South Dakota along with David Aukema from the Macatawa Bass Cubs who took first place in the 11-14 age group for the B.A.S.S. Northern Divisional Junior Championship.  That is just one step away from the B.A.S.S. National Championship.  We all wish Chase the best of luck in South Dakota... 
First Ever Junior Junior Club Member Tournament Held May 11th
Photos from the event in our 2013 Photo Gallery

We had a first for the club recently. At the request of several of our Junior Junior members, which are the 5-10 year olds, we held an "all fish" tournament on Kent Lake on Saturday May 11th.  All of our little guys showed up all decked out in the new Michigan Bass Anglers club shirts and fished out of our club boats in a 3 hour tournament.  They were allowed to use any baits they wanted including live bait, to try to catch either Bass for a Bass Tournament or Panfish for a Panfish tournament.  You could feel the excitement at launch.  The bass were tallied on our club Golden Rule tournament sheets while they simply had to keep track of how many panfish they caught all day.  A total of 5 club boats helped out.  The boaters were allowed to help out the Junior anglers any way they wanted, the kids just needed to be involved in some way in the fish catch.  That included help reel the fish in after the boater or parent set the hook.  The whole idea was to get the young anglers out on the water and expose them to the tournament fishing experience.  They all had a great time.  The boys even managed to have a bunch of energy afterwards to run and play in the park.  A perk after the tournament was a picnic lunch we had for everyone.  We had chicken, chips and pop after we came in off the lake.  In all the tournament was a huge success.  The parents seemed to enjoy the day was well. This was a perfect example of how much interest the younger kids have in fishing and the sport in general.

Michigan Bass Angler, Junior club member, takes 2nd place in Lake St Clair Walleye Association April Derby.
Joey Elliott, a Junior Michigan Bass Anglers Youth club member, caught a 19 3/4 walleye, to beat his brother Davy, 18 1/2 inch to take second place on their new Triton boat, from D and R Sports. First, place was 20 1/2 inches. The boys won a new fishing rod, two fillet knifes, fishing line, and soft plastic baits. The fish was caught jigging in the Detroit River, with over 40 boats in sight on a sunny Sunday morning. It is very obvious that fishing is in his blood.

New Club Shirts Acquired for the Entire Club
<Here are the sponsors who stepped up and help us get our new shirts.

After some extensive research and lots of  discussion, our club took a big forward to help increase our club presence.  We have created a new sublimated shirt that will display several sponsor logos and help promote our club and show support for our sponsors.  The shirts are great looking and have already been noticed by some famous people.  Skeet Reese was at the D and R Store when we all went there for their recent open house and seminars. He asked about the club, when he saw all of the bright blue and yellow shirts all over the place. The new shirts will be worn at all of our tournaments and especially at the Junior State Championship this year.  We want to graciously thank all of our loyal sponsors and some very new ones.  We can't thank you enough.  The shirt the club chose is shown to the right...

2012 Banquet was a great success...
This years Michigan Bass Anglers Banquet and Awards dinner was a big success.  We had around 60 people at the banquet .We did a pot luck dinner again this year and we had food galore.  Everyone brought a dish to pass.  All of our Youth Club members got their trophies as did the top finishers in Angler of the Year and Mr. Bass in the adult club.  Ryan and Eric receive a Certificate for helping out at the BASS Northern Open at Lake St Clair this seasonWe also handed out Certificates to all of our "Junior" Junior Angles for helping out at various evnets this past season.  We also handed out lots of fishing baits and other prizes to all of the kids.  The Junior Anglers of the year were also awarded a nice Oakley/Quantum Fishing rod for their efforts.  We would like to thank the Northfield Township Fire Department for providing their training room for the event.  CLICK HERE  to see a photo gallery
Our Club is currently recruiting new members, especially boaters.  If you are looking for a club that is a lot of fun and easy going and one that will help you learn a lot about bass fishing, especially if you have never been in a Bass Club Before, we may be your club!!
