2017 Classic Report
Let me start by thanking everyone from the SCBBBC who works to put on this tournament. It is by far my favorite tournament to fish every year regardless of the outcome.

I always take some time off of work and head to the lake a few days early to get in some R&R. This year was no different, except I added a day!
I got to the campground on Tuesday and started fishing at State Park. It got pretty windy and I was blown off the lake after a few hours with no bites.
Wednesday I fished north all morning and did OK after the rain blew through.  I didn’t catch a ton of fish but I started to put together a pattern around docks with bites coming on a chatterbait and an MM3 roboworm. It was still windy!
Thursday, more wind, I fished mid lake and the dock pattern was still working landed around 10 fish all between 1.5 and 3lbs..
Friday the wind calmed down and so did what little bite I had been on. I bounced around County Park all morning for 2 small fish, one on the Roboworm, and my first blade fish of the week.

Game day… I ran to my place and put in. I always have a blade tied on so I started tossing it right away. I got my first fish about a half hour after launching. It was a little 1.5 pounder.  Second fish ate a frog and was a little better at 2+. I started covering ground throwing the frog at tulles, and anything that looked good, a spinnerbait and chatterbait around and between docks, and tossing the MM3 worm under them.
I filled my limit by about 8:30 with 2 on the blade, one frog fish, and one on the worm. Total weight at this time was about 8.5 pounds.
I continued to catch a fish here and there but nothing would help, until about 11:30 when I felt the tic with the MM3 worm and set on a good fish. It went in the net and I culled the 1.5 for a 6.02 pound kicker. Only cull of the day!
I ended the day with just over 13 pounds and day 1 big fish.
I was sitting in second, about 0.25 pounds behind Kevin Marcheschi. Sunday was going to be fun.
I always worry about Kevin at Clear Lake. The man is a great stick and has the lake dialed in.

Day 2 was a little slower compared to day one and I had to work a little harder for the bites. The blade bite was off and only produced one fish for me all day that would see the scale. The MM3 worm bite also tapered off for only one keeper, which I culled later.
I started to drop shot a baby brush hog around dock poles for more bites and it wasn’t until about 10am before I had a small limit for about 8 pounds, maybe 9.  Around noon I dropped the brush hog next to a dock pole that had a 5+ pounder sitting on it, and put the fish in the net. It felt good to get a kicker that I felt would be necessary to pull off a win.
I weighed in with another limit just over 13 pounds with a 5.35 pound kicker, which was good for the day 2 big fish $$$ also.
My total weight for both days was 25.69, after a day 1 penalty for a DOA, and good enough for the win.

Blade fish came between docks as I dredged bottom. If it wasn’t banging rocks it didn’t get bit!
The Roboworm and Brush Hog bites all came on dock poles. Vertical drops right on the pole were the ticket. These fish were not chasing the bait and you had to slap em in the face with it to get bit. This was the pattern I started to see on Wednesday and it held all week.

Thanks again to everyone who puts these events on so I can have fun doing what I love to do!
See all y’all next year!

This is funny! We had the same issues with the BnT schedule this year.

People got their panties all wadded up because they didn't get to vote. [bawl]

Do you guys have the dates yet for the 2016 Classic?

We are also thinking about the BnT schedule for 16 and want to make sure we get the classic on it.

BTW, We are planning on the Open for 4/23-24/2016. Will let you know if the dates change.

Check out this float tube tournament video.
Wow... first thing I noticed is a lot of water there in Castaic lagoon only nine days ago, especially since they get their water from nor cal. How is it our lakes and reservoirs are almost empty and the lagoon is full to the brim?

Business as usual at M&M... [banghead]
Looking forward to getting together with all my SCBBBC buds at this years open.

Live well batteries

No on the 24V.

I use the 12V 12AH sealed lead acid battery from Radio shack also. I can run my graph (it's an older Eagle without GPS) and a 500Gph pump (cycled for 5-10 minutes at a time, a couple times and hour) for 2 days without a re-charge. They are cheaper than the 8AH batts at Radio shack too.

Hint: Google 12V alarm batteries. Lots of places to buy online.

Open and Todd

Hey Kevin,

BnT is going to dedicate this years open to the memory of Todd and I have already made a donation to Todd's family, on behalf of BnT, to the link you shared on Facebook.

As far as the open being a fundraiser and donating part of the proceeds I believe this is taken care of through the donation I mentioned above.

The fees collected at the open will be dispersed as usual, to be fair to all the participants, whether affiliated with the SCBBBC, BnT, and those not affiliated with either club.

If someone wants to start a collection at the tournament on the side that would be fine with me. I will be sure to donate something on my own behalf, and I am positive most of the participants would have no problem making a personal donation to Todd's family as well.

Binh is going to say a few words Saturday evening before we kick off the raffle and maybe that would be a good time to pass the hat.

We will all be thinking of Todd this weekend and he will surely be missed.
