Jim Hebert 2018 Angler of the Year

Mike Guitreau is 2019 President

George Valentine is new Treasurer

I was fortunate enough this past year to be able to fish all of the Tournaments and to do a little scouting and these two elements were the key ingredients to allow me to win this title.  I am humbled and grateful for the win. The Bass Club has some really good fishermen that are a lot better at it than I am, and to come out on top is an accomplishment that I’m proud of.  It was a very fun year of fishing with you all.

I am very glad to see two members step up to be the new Officers for the Club in 2019. I have been President for the past 3 years and in November we elected Mike Guitreau to be our new President.  Mike is one of the good fishermen that I mentioned earlier and has been in the Club for many years and won his share of Tournaments. He will be a good leader going forward.
Our new Secretary/Treasurer is George Valentine.He is another of the good fishermen in the Club who has won his share of Tournaments including our recent Classic, and will make an excellent Treasurer to keep up with our finances. Mike and George, thank you both for stepping up to lead the Club.

I want to take this opportunity to thank our outgoing Secretary/Treasurer, Eddie Bowman.  He served admirably for the last several years and did a great job and we appreciate that.

The Bass Club will have its Banquet to kick off the 2019 schedule on the 15th of January.  That’s where we sign up members for the Club and the EASL and plan our January Tournament.

The Club meets monthly on the Tuesday before each Tournament at the Gonzales Fire Department on Orice Roth Road at 6:30 PM to sign up and plan for each event.
We welcome all new members and hope to see everyone at the January Banquet.
