Bredel Kicks of the 2015 Season with Big Win on Berryessa!
32 years the Sonoma County Belly Boat Bass Club officially
started another season on Lake Berryessa in the Napa wine country.
32 years ago there were 9 anglers in little round tubes floating
in the center of Lake Alsanjo patiently waiting for me to blast
them off. 32 years later we had 21 anglers in fully rigged kick
boats impatiently waiting near a boat ramp while another club started
launching there big glitter rockets. The weather was perfect and
the fish were chewing in the shallows for most and the drop shoter's
had some fun too. When it came time to weigh in and see were the
cards would lie it was Jordan Brendel with the
winning limit of 17.66 and he just nudged out the big Jason
Cullen who weighed in 5 fish for 17.66 and 2nd place. Then
we have Matt Nyiri with 13.80 for 3rd place and
he swears it wasn’t the drop shot rod that did it for him.
Close behind Matt was our runner up at the 2014 TOC, and one of
our young guns, Jacob Hoch. The kid weighed in
5 fish for 13.27 and 4th place. Keep an eye on this young SCBBBC
member as he and his posse’ are really heating up. Scott
Caven let us all know he’s here to stay after weighing
in a limit for 13.02 and I’m sure we’ll be reading more
about this SCBBBC member in the next couple event’s.
Deren Kozenko took home the big fish award with
a 5.44 pounder that must have made him feel real good all day long
while basking in the 70 degree weather while fishing the season
opener for the SCBBBC. The fun didn’t stop there, oh no! Deren
also won the free raffle prize sponsored by the CatchemCaro
Bait Co. That prize was one G-Loomis 6’6” Med
cranking rod. And it was our new tournament director Mark Harrison
who took home the last place fish award donated by the CatchemCaro
Bait Co. One real nice JA Quick top water bait.
We collected 7 cans of food for our clubs 2015 charity event. Keep
those cans coming to every meeting and tournament? SCBBBC membership
packages were given out to everyone, shirts, calendars, decals.
The goal for 2015 is FUN. I think we all had some fun. See you all
at the next club meeting. full
