Lightning Strikes at Lake Blue Cypress

Matt Byrd

With the season drawing to an end, nineteen teams showed up to battle it out. Some where battling it out for the season's top honors of Angler of the Year while others were battling it out in order to make the top ten cut and solidify their spot in this years Classic Championship. With the whole season on the line the tensions and expectations were high. The morning launch went off without a hitch and the weather was nice for most of the day until those afternoon clouds began to roll in carrying some pretty wicked lightning touching down in the middle of the lake.

Absolute Slugfest for Space Coast Bass Finatics at Miami Garcia

Matt Byrd

With the season drawing near the end, twenty one teams came out ready and excited to give their all in order to try and jockey into the best position they can in hopes of making this years classic championship. With all but one team managing to get a limit, it was no secret that the bite was on for the Bass Finatics on Miami Garcia. With just a little over a pound and some change difference between second place and seventh place it was one of those days where every fish and every ounce can make or break you.

With good weather in the forecast and the usual bit of tournament day wind blowing, twenty two teams showed up to one of our local fishing spots to see how they line up against the competition. With a bit of a slow start due to some safety concerns the boats began launching one at a time with caution. After a safe launch it seemed that once again those who made the treacherous journey down to Sattori through all the mud and laid down trees were the ones who did the best.

Record Smashed for one Space Coast team on The Big "O"

Matt Byrd

It was a big weekend for the Space Coast Bass Finatics on Lake Okeechobee this year! With a long time standing record of one day total weight being broken by one team and plenty of fish being caught by the remaining eighteen teams there was no question the fish were biting. Just ask the team of Roger and Aaron Marek who successfully joined the dirty thirty club or the team of Jay Stein and Rob Branagh who made a huge move on the final day to finish just shy of the top three.

The Hot Streak Continues for some Bass Finatics at West Lake Toho

Matt Byrd

Twenty five teams ventured their way to the City Ramp on the north end of Lake Toho bright and early hoping to fill out the day pulling in some giant Kissimmee chain bass. As some waited for the new owners of the bait and tackle shop to start serving some breakfast sandwiches others were busy serving up their usual pre tournament trash talking. After having no hiccups launching all the boats the club was set loose on the water to test their skill.

SCBF Packs the Ramp at Miami Garcia

Matt Byrd

It was quite the turn out for the Space Coast Bass Finatics this season at one of their home lakes Miami Garcia. Boasting pretty much a full field, twenty nine teams showed up just weeks before christmas to see if they could find their own gifts out on the lake in the form of some giant Largemouth Bass with pretty little bows on them. They packed the parking lot full of trucks and trailers and filled up all the spots on the bank first thing in the morning. After swapping some fish stories of the ones that got away during pre fishing, the boats were launched without a hitch.

Space Coast Bass Fanatics take on Lake Poinsett

Matt Byrd

Twenty eight teams showed up bright and early for the chance to get their lures wet and maybe get paid to do so. The launch went off without a hitch and the weather was nice. The lake decided to produce some fish for most with eighteen teams weighing in a full five bass limit and four teams weighing in over twenty pound bags.

First place went to the team of Brian Cole and Bill Groseclose who weighed in a hefty sack of largemouth bass weighing just over twenty pounds with 20.67 pounds anchored by a 7.66 pound Poinsett stud.
