Many Bass Club holds December tournament

Article Image Alt Text

Mac McPhearson took Big Bass honors with a 4.30 pound lunker.

The club officers would like to thank all the members and their families for supporting the Many Bass Club during the 2018 tournament year. Twelve monthly tournaments and the Championship Tournament on Lake Nacogdoches were all great memories of friendship, tournament wins and losses. Special thanks to the Herr family who were gracious enough to feed our outlaw group and allow us in their home for our annual banquet and the McPhearsons for the great meal (really great meal) served at the Championship Tournament.

The December tournament’s first place winner is Jim Campbell with a five-fish stringer weighing 12.98 pounds. Campbell caught his fish both shallow and deep in the 1215 area of Toledo Bend using a drop shot and carolina rig. Mac McPhearson claims the big bass honors with a 4.30 lunker caught in the north end of the lake.
