Bass Club takes second place at season opener

TAKE SECOND PLACE–Jack Ford and Matthew Nowak are pictured with their awards after taking second place at the Bass Club’s first tournament of the year, held March 6 at Lake Egypt.

The Red Bud Musketeers and Royals Bass Club circuit started the year on March 6 at Lake Egypt with some rain and a cold north wind, but that didn’t seem to bother the young fishermen and women.

Tyler Deien and Brandon Trame placed third with a limit of five fish for 10.25 pounds, but also had the big bass of 4.69 pounds. They are from Central High School with coach Kris Deien.
