Lake Amistad and TPWD fizzing video

Shawn Denny sent all of us a great video on fizzing Largemouth Bass from TPWD at Lake Amistad. The link follows and I know I will go back to side fizzing as it definitely seems the better method. You can access the video by clicking here.

I received a thank you email from Laura during our 2012 Championship and thought I would share it with all of you. The website has proven to be a great means of communications for anglers like Buddy and Mary Sanford who missed their first championship after 26 years of attendance and Jeff and Sheri Jorde but also friends of anglers and friends of friends of anglers. The thank you goes as this...

"Several friends compete in your organization. Wish I was one.

With all the violence on the border we begin to look for other alternatives.
I look forward to getting information from angelers on Grand Lake.

I'm emailing to thank you for the update. I know it takes time from retieing
lures and gathering info from fellow competitors that can be critical to
your next fishing day.

Your organization continues to change as any living thing does.
Congratulation to the officers and members who overcome the political nature
of a club and the present economy.

Just a simple thanks and to let you know I am one of your fans of the
Suncountry Bass Association."

I know Ranger boats is instrumental in keeping this circuit together but at least we know all of us have built a little more into it over the years.

2016

Schedule

Championship Falcon Lake

Falcon Reservoir is off limits starting Sept 5th at sunset continuing until safelight on Sept 25th. You cannot solicit information from anyone other than SCBA anglers or public sites and postings. Monday's Team meeting will be at the Aqua Restaurant and Bar as well as Friday's awards dinner. I am certain that all attending will catch a lot of fish but finding the bigger ones will be a challenge to some of us I am sure. We will have a 3 fish limit and it will be important to take care of your fish as water temps were 90 to 91 degrees over Labor Day weekend. Water elevation is about 5 feet higher than 4 years ago when we were there but 8 to 10 feet lower than 2009. There are still rooms available at the Best Western 9567658403, just don't let the construction scare you! Tournament Headquarters is the Best Western Inn by the lake and be sure to ask for Evon as she is wanting to do a Happy Hour for us if we get enough teams there - 1-956-765-8403.  I have posted the Championship Rules and Entry Form so you can get it mailed in by September 10th.  It has been a very competitive year and I believe Championship will be too.  For those of you who remember we fished for 3 fish at the Championship 4 years ago and to help conserve the fishery we will do so again in 2016.  It reduces the risk of stressing out or killing the bass especially if the 6- 10 pounders keep biting like they have been while trying to keep 5 of them alive in the live well.  

Ute July

Tom and Bubba Haralson drove a long ways from Del Rio and Zapata to fish Ute and showed us that a good ole Jig can still be used in the day of drop shots and finesse fishing. They took first place by a narrow .1 pounds with 21.68 pounds over Harry Dalton and Billy Havens who probably did do some drop shotting when they caught a 5.37 pound Smallmouth on Sunday giving them Big Bass and Second place with 21.58 pounds total.  Billy and Harry drove in from Farmington about a 6 hour trip and Third place finishers Leroy Bostick and Dale Parrish drove up from Carlsbad and put back to back 9 pound sacks together for their overall weight of 18.66 pounds.  So in review, the Top 3 teams drove a long ways to show us how to fish Ute and may want to come back for the Smith RV and Marine tournament in August.  Fourth place through 7th place were all in the 17 pound range with Justin Orr and Brandon Holley in Fourth, Fifth place going to Gabe Rivera and Johnny Johnson Sixth place to Butch and Angie Colantonio and Seventh place to John Newlun and Jimmy Patterson.  It was a very competitive year with 5 different winners in both the Tournaments and Ranger Cup and meaning a very competitive Super Team run for the Anglers of the Year in Todd Town and Bradley Jameson, congrats to them on a consistent run this year.  Results are posted on the Tournament page and I have updated the Super Team Standings and Final AoY.

Ute June

Fishing seemed better than showed by many teams, but overall it was still a pound better through the Top 20 over last year and way up through 30th place.  The weather cooperated overall last weekend other than a pretty good thunder storm Saturday morning that did soak a few teams. That being said the ability to put back to back limits was the key to making the top 10 unless you had a big bass.  Congrats to Butch and Angie Colantonio who edged out Jeff and Sheri Jorde for First place by .14 pounds with 20.69 pounds.  JT Hodges and Jeff Robinson took third place with 19.38 pounds, Rod Hasselhof and Randy Masucci took fourth and Justin Orr and Brannon Holley round out the top five both in the 18 pound range.  Several Big Bass came in on Sunday with a monster Smallie by Alan Bauder at 5.04 pounds.  I hope to post some pics as they have been floating around as Ben at Rough Neck Tackle took many and sent them to Bill Dunn for the NM Weekly fishing report.  Complete standings can be found on the Tournament Page and I will update Super Team and Ranger Cup overall standings later this week as I am traveling again.

Navajo 

Super Team AoY and Ranger Cup YTD standings are now posted on the Tournament Page.  Although it didn't quite go like some of us wanted, what a great turnout and some good fishing by many for the tournament last weekend.  The weather cooperated quite well until Sunday around noon and then it took a dramatic change with hail, wind and rain but that only hurt those who were bed fishing as some really good fish had moved up.  I can't say it was the weather as they were really weird in that they weren't interested in guarding the beds quite yet but I know many teams saw Largemouth in the 5 to 7 pound class in shallow water waiting to spawn.  And many of us wasted way too much time trying to get them to bite.  Congrats to Kris Bosley and Justin Morris on their first place finish as they ran away with it beating second place by 7 pounds.  Todd Town and Bradley Jameson took second with a great stringer on Sunday totaling 22.25 pounds and Sam Walker and Danny Nelson rounded out the Top 3 with 21.62 pounds.  Fourth place went to John Newlun and Jimmy Patterson, Fifth place to Leon Pulliam and Steve Schneider, Sixth place to Clayton Herrera and EJ King and Seventh went to Charlie and Melanie Estep.  Big Bass for the weekend went to Kris and Justin as well as Ranger Cup as they weighed in a 6.74 pound Largemouth on Sunday.  Results are posted on the Tournament page or for just the tournament standings click here and I will update the Super Team and Ranger Cup overall standings and get them posted also.  My apologies for being a little late but work gets in the way sometimes.  


Amistad and the Southern Swing

Two down, three to go and we head north to Navajo Lake in May but April at Amistad was the place to be last weekend as the teams braved unusually cold morning temperatures but less than normal winds for two days of fishing.  Congrats to Brendan Kennell and Tyler Wilson on their First place finish with over 34 pounds beating Darin Ford and Steve Johnson with their 33 plus pounds for Second place.  Third place went to Steve Schneider and Leon Pulliam with 30.57 pounds, Fourth place went to Rafael Menchaca and Roland Hernandez with 30.36 pounds and the Top 5 was rounded out by Rod Hasselhof and Randy Massucci with 29.67 pounds.  In Sixth place was Jim and Gail Criswell with 29.59 pounds but good enough to take Ranger Cup honors edging out another Ranger boat with Bubba and Tom Haralson with 29.48 pounds weighing in just 4 fish on Sunday.  Big Bass honors went to Butch and Angie Colantonio with a 7.54 pound Largemouth.  Complete standings can be found on the Tournament Page including Ranger Cup and Super Team standings for the April Tournament.



The first tournament is in the books and congrats to Keith and Allison Counts on their runaway win.  They outpaced everyone as they led wire to wire with 19 pound sacks both days totalling 38.78 pounds and did not have Big Bass. Keith and Allison also took home Ranger Cup honors fishing out of their Z521.  Second thru 7th were really tight showing how good the fishing was despite being almost 9 pounds behind the Counts.  Second place went to Rafael Menchaca who was fishing with his partner from last weekends Bass Champs tournament Roland Hernandez weighing in 30.75 pounds who both pulled a nice check last weekend too.   Yes Rafael did fish with Bill McCoun the last couple years but Bill was fishing the Texas Federation tournament.  Third place went to a familiar name with Terry Scarafiotti fishing with Memo Nunez weighing in 29.69 pounds.  Bubba Harralson was fishing with his son Tom this year and finished fourth with 29.52 pounds and the Top 5 was rounded out with Todd Town and Bradley Jameson with 29.26 pounds.  Sixth place went to JT Hodges and Jeff Robinson, Seventh to Johnny Johnson and Gabe Rivera and Eighth to Mike Kelly and Landon Carter all in the 28 pound range.  Big Bass at 7.65 pounds and Ninth place went to Jim and Gail Criswell and Tenth place was Brendan Kennell and Tyler Wilson.  Jeff and Sheri Jorde also had a 7.46 pound largemouth on Sunday and lots of 6 pounders were weighed in.  As good as the fishing was some teams did struggle and I know both Rain Gods and Burro were very crowded.  A great showing for the first tournament and some familiar names returned to compete this past weekend thank you to all the teams for making the trip.  Thanks as always to Ranger Boats and Ranger Trail Trailers and see you all back at Amistad in 5 weeks.  Standings for Overall, Super Team and Ranger Cup can be found on the Tournament page. 

The Ramada is offering a discount for Sun Country so please be sure to mention it when you check in, the Contestants meeting will be at the Ramada in the SunBlossom rooms next to the restaurant as the Texas Federation will be in the Conference Center.  Meeting will start at 7pm but be there early if you have emailed me or called me to let me know you are coming but haven't paid.  

The new Membership, Entry and Rules forms are up on the Membership page.  I have signed the Ranger contract and am sending it back but no news from Humminbird/MinnKota at this point.  The schedule is what it is and I know moving the second Amistad is bad for the NM anglers traveling to Mead for Divisionals but we are on top of a Texas Fed tournament the first Amistad also.  I hesitated on putting out the schedule as I always have a conflict but the schedule at this point is what it is as many have scheduled vacation around these dates.  I put out some teasers late last year and I did finally get a couple messages that our second tournament was scheduled on Easter Weekend so I moved it but that was the only change!!!!!  A Preacher or someone preaching to me told me that Jesus was a fisherman and we could probably fish that weekend but giving into spousal pressure I deferred to the next weekend. With that said the schedule is as follows:  February 27th and 28th at Amistad, April 2nd and 3rd back at Amistad, May 14th and 15th Navajo (in conjunction with the Queens Memorial), June 11th and 12th at Ute and July 9th and 10th back at Ute.  This is a great schedule for as well as all the lakes are fishing and I know Conchas is fishing "Awesome" but they have no facilities and Elephant Butte is still "Work in Progress" but Earl Conway is getting it back we just have to be patient.  Additionally Logan Chamber of Commerce is a great sponsor and covers Championship Meals with their contribution.  Championship is TBD as far as the lake goes but September 25th thru the 30th is the date for sure and I am already in contact with the Zapata Chamber of Commerce.  Vacations have been set and the only hiccup will be the second tournament date for a few that I gave in on Easter versus the original dates I posted on FB back in early December.  Thanks to all for your support over the years and we look forward to this year and seeing everyone again.


Championship

After Three Days of competition the pattern for the top teams was predictable and Brad and Gary Jameson wound up on top with 59.91 pounds edging out Ranger Cup Champions Kris Bosley and Justin Morris who took second place, Ranger Cup and Ranger Cup AOY with 57.97 pounds.  Third place honors went to Coy DeVoll and Jeff Woodington with 48.38 pounds, Fourth place went to Steve Schneider and Leon Pullium with 48.26 pounds and rounding out the Top 5 was Jim and Gail Criswell with 48.11 pounds.  4 of the Top 5 teams had one thing in common in that they were all fishing Ribbits in shallow grass areas. and 3 of the teams were fishing real close to the Fin and Feather Resort in Hausen Bay.  Johnny Johnson and Gabe Rivera had the big sack of the day to move into sixth place, Kevin Smith and Karlton Reed took seventh place honors while Tyler Wilson and Grant Goldbeck took eighth place.  Ninth place honors went to Doug Stewart and Joe Smith and rounding out the Top Ten was Todd Town and Josh Tidenberg.

Ute July

Tougher than expected fishing this weekend with a lot of ups and downs for teams. Congrats to Kris Bosley​ and Justin Morris​ on their First place finish with Tom Jessop and Walter Burnett finishing second and JT Hodges​ and Jeff Robinson​ third. Thanks again this tournament to Angie Colantonio​ for helping out with weigh in and Steve Schneider​ for his help watching weigh in times and cleaning up. I will give a complete recap tomorrow night after I can make sure I entered all the weights correctly but I have posted the standings and Super Team standings on the Tournament Page. Congrats to John Newlun and Jimmy Patterson on their Threepeat of Angler of the Year. Butch and Angie Colantonio made a great weigh in filled with excitement. Kris Bosley and Justin Morris might have run away with it but they had to miss Navajo which opened the door for the photo finish. New comers Randy Campbell and Andrew Miller finished in the Top 5 and more teams will have qualified for the Super Team Wild Card than in any year we have had it. I mentioned the Top 3 but also in other teams were Fourth place Lamont and Greg Gizzi, Fifth place was Butch and Angie Colantonio, Sixth place was Jeff Solverson and David Wilkins also newcomers even though Jeff fished with his son Justin Solverson last year followed in Seventh by John Newlun and Jimmy Patterson. Tyler Wilson and Grant Goldbeck finished in Eighth and Kenny Smith fishing with a 3 week old hip and his wife Kerri who doesn't like to touch fish in Ninth. Big Bass went to John Newlun and Jimmy Patterson with a 4.12 largemouth. I have posted pictures at the flickr site and I should have the entry forms up by Friday if you didn't pick one up at the meeting last week. The standings were accurate so if you made the Top 5 be sure to get me jacket sizes so I can get them ordered. If you don't want another jacket let me know and I will pay the equivilant in cash to the team. The Championship Itenerary will not be complete before early September but count on a meal Monday and Friday but probably no pizza on Thursday as there are no Pizza Huts or comparable nearby. Thanks again for a great year so far and a weekend without wearing the rain suits..

Ute Lake - June


As usual the weather was less than cooperative this past weekend with rain and wind Friday and thunderstorms most of Saturday but Sunday was mostly clear and back to warm temperatures making for some changing fishing conditions to deal with for sure. 18 limits were weighed in on Saturday and 15 more on Sunday so Ute Lake actually fished as good as it has in a while for most teams. Patterns varied with Top Water baits making for a lot of the catches especially early and during the rain storms on Saturday. Some good fish were weighed in on Saturday and that catapulted many of the teams to the top of the leaderboard above the small limits many teams caught over the two days of competition. Congratulations to Mike Chisum and Joe Bennett as they led wire to wire after sacking up over 13 pounds on Saturday finishing with over 20 pounds for the tournament win. The top 3 actually held the same as Jeff Woodington and Coy Devoll finished in second with 19.34 pounds and Randy Campbell and Andrew Miller took third place honors with 18.53 pounds. Mike Chisum and Joe Bennett also weighed in the Big Bass at 5.64 pounds and took Ranger Cup for a stellar weekend. Butch and Angie Colantonio had a good sack Sunday to move up to fourth place with 18.09 pounds and Walter Burnett and Tom Jessop rounded out the Top 5 with 17.9 pounds. Angler of the Year heated up as Butch and Angie Colantonio closed to within 3 points of current leaders and two years running champions John Newlun and Jimmy Patterson with one tournament remaining on Ute Lake in July. If both teams finish in the same places next tournament there would be a tie for AoY so everyone stay tuned on that front. Complete standings and updated Super Team standings can be found on the Tournament Page.


Navajo May


Navajo at about 6100 feet elevation makes for some wonderful spring fishing with hail, rain and morning freezes. This year was no exception as a cold front gave us all those conditions and a great Sunday with temperatures in the upper 60's after two miserable days weather wise. Congrats to John Newlun and Jimmy Patterson on another win with Johnny Johnson and Gabe Rivera in second and David Herrera and Donna Herrerain third place and Big Bass for the weekend with a 6.23 pound largemouth. I will post updated Sun Country results but I wanted to get this much out for now so you can link to the Tournament Results Here. Great job by Billy Dunson and the 4 Corners Club for putting on a great tournament that helps support Youth Baseball in the area with over 2000 dollars donated from sponsors of the event. A great fish fry after weigh in and a great hot dog cookout Saturday night featuring Angie Colantonio and her salsa rounded out a fun weekend overall even with the weather. Thanks to all that fished this weekend. Updated Super Team and Ranger Cup overall standing will also be posted later this week.


Amistad April


Amistad is improving as a fishery and this weekends weights may not reflect it but a lot of small fish in the lake and lots of cover. I wish the National Park Service cared just a little bit about what the fishermen bring to the community and the lake but that is for another discussion. The patterns varied as some teams were still sight fishing while others were catching on jerkbaits and carolina rigs as well as some topwater fish. Great tournament for the a lot of teams including the Top 3 as all were in the 29 pound range. Driving up from Zapata Texas, Charlie Harrrelson and Jimmy Steel took first place honors with 29.48 pounds edging out Kris Bosley fishing without his partner Justin Morris at 29.18 pounds who edged out Tyler Wilson and Grant Goldbeck at 29.12 pounds. Big Bass for the weekend went to Jeff and Sheri Jorde. The Top 5 included JT Hodges and Jeff Robinson at Fourth with 25.98 pounds and Gary Carr and JJ Ducharme at 22.08 pounds. Sixth thru Tenth places were Rod Hasselhof and Randy Massucci with 21.56 pounds, Jim and Gail Criswell with 21.46 pounds, Butch and Angie Colantonio with 21.31 pounds, Byron Heiser and Keith Counts with 20.69 and John Newlun and Jimmy Patterson with 18.95 pounds. Thanks to Angie Colantonio, Sheri Jorde and JT Hodges on the help putting together final numbers to speed up the trip to Amistad Marine to hand out the awards. Some familiar faces were back and it was great to see them in the money. Complete standings for this tournament including Super Team and Ranger Cup can be found on the tournament page.



Amistad February/March


Day Two wasn't much better than day one from a temperature aspect but the top teams definitely had the fish pretty much dialed in. There were 13 limits on Saturday out of 32 teams competing with only 5 blanks. Compared to many circuits and considering temperatures and fronts it was a good of fishing overall. Sunday only gave out 7 limits showing just how bad the front was. Gary Carr and JJ Ducharme put together 4 good fish to take first place honors with 24.51 pounds edging out Butch and Angie Colantonio who had limits both days but a total of 24.19 pounds. Third place was Kris Bosley and Justin Morris with 23 pounds, Fourth to Byron Heiser and Keith Counts with 21.68 pounds and Fifth place went to last years AOY with 21.1 pounds. The rest of the Top Ten went to Jeff Woodington and Coy DeVoll at Sixth, Kevin Rodriguez and Dougan Anderson at Seventh, Charlie Estep and Art VanNostrand at Eighth, Adrian Yeo at Ninth and Doug Stewart and Joe Smith rounded out the Tenth. Big Bass for the weekend went to Trent Huckaby and Bubba Harrelson with a 5.69 pounder. Complete standings are posted at the Tournament Page. We will be back for round 2 on April 18th and 19th and I bet the weather will be warmer.


Day one here at Amistad is in the books and current results can be found at this link - day one standings. 13 limits were caught with Bosley and Morris in front, with Woodington and DeVoll in second and the Colantonios in third.


The Ramada Inn has been a sponsor for over 20 years and will continue to host the Friday meetings for 2015. I know some of you all stay at various hotels, homes and trailers but I appreciate their continued support of us so Friday the 27th of February and Friday the 17th of April's meetings will be at the Ramada in the meeting room by the restaurant. They will offer a special rate to Sun Country teams of 69 dollars per night plus tax and this includes breakfast although I think we will be on the water by then but be sure to mention Sun Country for the discounted rate.


Ranger Boats has returned the contract for this year to me to be signed so we are good to go for 2015. A sincere thanks to Ranger Boats and their entire staff for their continued support. Another thanks to all of you who support Ranger Boats as you are part of the reason they stay with us as well as the efforts of Kevin Smith and Smith RV and Marine. The 2015 Forms are posted on the Membership Page and Falcon Lake is looking less likely as JJ Ducharme and Joe Weber let me know there is a 200 boat tournament there on the weekend after we finish. It isn't the crowd but the rooms that will probably be the problem so the search will continue for a lake for Championship.


NOTE FINAL, FINAL2015 DATES!! I screwed up the Oilman's is on the 11th and 12th so we can move to the 18th and 19th of April so I have changed the second tournament to those dates. The dates will be February 28th and March 1st for the first tournament and April 18th and 19th for the second tournament. We will also go back up to Navajo for a conjunction tournament with the Queens as we have for the last couple of years. The first place payout is about the same and it goes to support local youth baseball teams. The date for Navajo is May 16th and 17th. June 13th and 14th is Ute Lake and for right now July 11th and 12th is up in the air although it is penciled in at Ute but I am nervous about water conditions for sure. Championship works good in September and will run the 20th thru the 25th with a lake TBD (To Be Determined). I will work with Falcon and the Chamber but it is way to early to know for sure. I do know that without local support it is hard to go to just any lake and get the meals.


I have the schedule posted at www.suncountrybass.orgI apologize for the delay in getting this out but strange rumors were out that Lake Amistad NRA was raising tournament permit fees to 300 dollars and if that was the case we weren't going back. Clem finally chased down someone at the Park Service and I am happy to report all is the same for 2015 so we will start the season at Lake Amistad for 2 tournaments back to back like last year so people can leave boats in Del Rio or close by. The dates will be February 28th and March 1st for the first tournament and April 11th and 12th for the second tournament (Bass Champs was on the 28th of March so we are moving to April). We will also go back up to Navajo for a conjunction tournament with the Queens as we have for the last couple of years. The first place payout is about the same and it goes to support local youth baseball teams. The date for Navajo is May 16th and 17th. June 13th and 14th is Ute Lake and for right now July 11th and 12th is up in the air although it is penciled in at Ute but I am nervous about water conditions for sure. Championship works good in September and will run the 20th thru the 25th with a lake TBD (To Be Determined). I will work with Falcon and the Chamber but it is way to early to know for sure. I do know that without local support it is hard to go to just any lake and get the meals.



2014


Championship


Late start today thanks to some lightning in the area but it went away and left us 7 hours to fish in about 5 inches of continuous rain. Great tournament to all and congrats to JJ Ducharme and Gary Carr on their win this week at Amistad. 30.31 pounds. 2nd place was the team of Trent Huckaby and Bubba Harrelson at 28.47 pounds, 3rd place went to Mike Chisum and Joe Bennett with 28.20 pounds, 4th place went to Doug Stewart and Joe Smith with 27.64 pounds and 5th place went to Mike Cones and Adrian Yeo with 26.89 pounds. Al lot of limits today even with the rain and a great Awards dinner at the Ramada Inn Del Rio. Complete results can be found here.Super Team results are posted on the Tournament Page along with Ranger Cup AOY final standings.


Day Two is complete and Gary Carr and JJ Ducharme narrowly held onto the lead as Trent Huckaby and Bubba Harrelson brought in over 11 pounds to move into second place. Second large Bass for Day two went to Gabe Rivera and Johnny Johnson which moved them up to third while Todd Town and Cecil Carter had another limit keeping them in the run at fourth. Big Bass of the day at 5.55 went to Tyler Dixon and Cliff Miller moving them up to fifth while Joe Smith and Doug Stewart stayed at sixth and Mike Chisum and Joe Bennett fell to seventh. The Top 7 are all within 5 pounds of each other and anyone bringing in a Big Bass will move up for sure. Day 2 standings are posted here.


Day one is in the books and fishing is still tough here at Amistad. Rising water, lots of grass, and 81 degrees water and you would think we would be sacking them, but 33 qualified teams showed only 3 limits. Gary Carr and JJ Ducharme have the lead with 12.93 pounds, Todd Town and Cecil Carter are in second with 10.03 pounds. 3rd thru 6th all have 7 plus pounds and are as follows, Mike Chisum and Joe Bennett 7.98, Gabriel Rivera and Johnny Johnson 7.92, Trent Huckaby and Bubba Harrelson 7.81 and Joe Smith and Doug Stewart with 7.17. Gary and JJ also had Big Bass at 5.35 while Dustin Lester and Bob Howard had second Big Bass at 4 pounds even. Full Results are posted and can be Day accessed here.
