The Manny Nunez Memorial Bass Club Challenge Tournament in September went off with out a hitch. We had 9 different clubs and over 50 boats total from all over So Cal show up and fish at Castaic Lake. This event ended up being one of the biggest tournaments to be held in recent history at Castaic Lake. There hasn’t been a 50-boat field since the late 70’s early 80’s on any of the local lakes. Top honors for the day went something like this in 4th place California Bass Contenders 26.33#’s, 3rd place Bass’n Buddies with 26.67#’s. 2nd place fell to Ventura County Bass club with 26.99#’s and 1st place with a total of 28.21#’s was the castaic Bass Club.
The five competing teams met up early for sum grub and tactics at Lyons Parkway Denny’s. Big Ed and Joe Vermilyer, Ron Janke and Alfred Vasquez, Derek Yoshinaga and Frank Castro, Gabby Hayes and Kenny Isago, Randy Estrada and Alex Cox. It was a fun event that matched up nine local clubs as the California Bass Contenders sat only ounces out of the money. Congrats to Derrik Yoshinaga for catching the Big Fish of the tournament that cashed him a sweet $500.00 prize. Next year the Bass Contenders will be back for redemption.
