Two Club Records Broken at Glen Lake in 2018
The father and son team of Dave and Chris Gutuskey managed to break two long standing Club Records in 2018.  On day one of the tournament at Glen Lake, Chris caught a nice 5.98 pound Smallmouth, breaking the 5 year old Record set by Greg Choiniere of 5.94 pounds.  Then on day 2, Dave caught a very respectible 6.31 pound Largemouth in the same general area of the lake.  They should both be congratulated on their nice fish...

Devon Banks Seminar at the Junior Bassmaster Meeting in February
Local Pro Angler Devon Banks came out to our February Junior Bassmaster meeting and provided a great semiar.  Devon showed the boys what being a pro is all about.  He covered topics such as how to get and retain sponsors, social media exposure, types of baits that have been sucessful for him and how to prepare for tournaments.  There were lost of questions from the boys.  Devon did a great job.
2016 Club Banquet a Big Success...
The annual Michigan Bass Anglers Club Banquet went off without a hitch.  Everyone seemed to have a great time. We had around 40 people at the banquet this year.  Northfield Township Fire Department allowed us to use their great Fire Station Training Room again this year, a big thanks goes out to Deputy Chief Chris Bishop and the on duty firefighters for putting up with everyone once again. All of our Junior Bassmasters received award plaques this year for the efforts all season.  Watch for pictures in the near future...
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 bring 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.

Victor Cole, one of our newest club members recently fished the 2013 Michigan B.A.S.S.

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
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.

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. 
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!!
