About the Club

Back in the early days of tournament fishing, there was a rapidly growing interest in the sport. Information was limited on how, where and when to catch Bass.  One of the best ways to learn was by belonging to a Bass club.  By knowing this, some avid fisherman in our area planned and organized a Bass club.  That club became known as Southern Ohio Bassmasters.  The object of creating the club was for members to enjoy the sport by learning from other fisherman while at the same time competing and enjoying the benefits of being in a Bass club.  Many club members, both previous and presently active, have benefited over the years by having been a part of S.O.B.  The same concepts still apply now as they did in the beginning.  The doors to the future are always open to new members and as always old members are always welcome back.   Take a look at our By-Laws here.

Unexpected turn of events at the river today.The river was on the rise and the water color turned less than a foot of visibility. The pictures that I posted on Wednesday were not cropped...I promise!!
Still fish were caught.
Mike McAdams and Bill Blades finished first, and had big bass. Ben Gulleman and Joe Pangallo second. Ryan and Yerbro Turner third. Ray Vitatoe, Dan Roberts and Todd turned their fish loose after seeing that their fish wouldn't out weigh the winner.
I really appreciate the guys that showed up. Although, it was very disapointing having our worse turn out of the year. Probably going to cancel the remaining river tournaments, due to lack of interest,and relocate to the lakes that had our best turn-out.
Our next tournament will be at Paint Creek on July 15th. 6:00am -2:30pm.
