Chickasha Bassmasters
January 14, 2017

An interesting start to the year as always!  Tough time getting the Arbuckle permit again, so we swapped Arbuckle and Eufaula.  This also works out to help with any teams wishing to fish the NSF Qualifiers.  Our tournaments line up with the first two, however the third is our Arbuckle tournament.. and they are at Hudson.  So you can fish Aruckle and head up to hudson for one day if you still need one good score.  Or you can choose to fish both days at hudson and not come to Arbuckle.  Totally up to you.

The membership form has been updated.  And if you are planning on fishing the NSF Qualifiers or FLW tournaments... I need your membership forms ASAP.  Check out the forms tab and you will find the updated sheet there.

the top 6 falls on top of our murray tournament and doesn't allow us to follow our rules, so we'll have to see who qualifies and who would want to travel to grand lake instead of fishing murray.  if nobody wants to go, totally understandable!  

if you have questions about anything, please let us know and we will do our best to make corrections or explain anything.

wishing you much fishing success this year!!

Happy New Year!

We're looking forward to this year's schedule, permits are on the books, so we've added the ramps for all as well as the times.

Please take note about Arbuckle & Murray swapping!  Murray is now April 11 and Arbuckle is now October 10.  Due to their 1 tournament per day rule, we were just nudged out by another call at midnight.  It seems it was a popular date as 4 people total had requests in for that date.  Whether we like it or not, it is there rules and we are going with it.  So they had the October date available, so we swapped those two tournaments.  Everything else should be good.  Stay warm - be sure to follow us on Facebook!!

Okay - we decided to add the lakes - Permits will be going out soon, Arbuckle can't be done until January 1, 2015 - will update as soon as I can for ramps.


December 6, 2014

Winter is upon us, the fishing season has ended for most.  The days are short and the nights are long... soon it will be time to be on the water, see the world wake up and go chase little green fishies again!  

Until then, do inventory, restock, get some line, clean out the boat, organize your stuff, plan your budget.  It's something to do in the off time.  might even sneak off to a pond or two!

Tonight was the annual meeting at the bank in Chickasha to set the schedule for next year.

One rule amendment - stating clearly that at least one person in the boat must be over 18, and the other if under 18 and not fishing with a parent/guardian, must have a signed release form from a parent/guardian allowing them to fish.

Everyone seems pleased with the payout schedule that we changed a year ago, there are no changes in fees.

Officers were voted to stay the same so:

Jason Conaway - President
Pat Conaway - Vice President
Lynn Conaway - Secretary/Treasurer

Jason & Pat share the Tournament Director seat

The dates are posted on the schedule page, will post the lakes as we get permits back in.
 


We already had some brand new members at the meeting, so welcome!  We averaged 16 boats per tournament last year - would love to see that average sitting around 20 at least - spread the word!!

Be sure to follow us on facebook too!  Want to start posting more content - so take pictures before the tournament, while your fishing or during weigh-in and email them to us with any info - date/lake or story so we can get it posted!!  The more follows, posts and like of posts we have will keep out page more active and in front of more people!


Advertising:  Please help support the cost of running the website with your $25 donation - with this donation you get a business card sized ad on the Links page.

Shirts:  Selling shirts is a fundraiser, we don't make a lot extra, however every little bit helps!  We have a small order right now and a few more so we can send in.  These shirts are screen printed, therefore we have to have a minimum of 10 to send in for them to be printed.  Please find the order form on the Rules and Forms page.

March 2014
Hello all!  We hope 2014 is going well for you!!  A couple things as our upcoming tournament approaches...

Membership Forms & Entry forma are on website - click HERE

Rules have been update if you haven't seen them yet - HERE

We started taking advertising to help support the website and to help promote local business - if you are interested, please contact us.  EMAIL

Membership is still $60 per person - under the age of 16 is only $10.  If you are one of the few life members of FLW, please contact the secretary before sending in your membership dues.

Tournament entries are now $70 as per the vote in December.  $10 is for Big Bass and $60 is the regular entry.  Payout remains at 80%, however the number of payouts has changed.  Instead of the set 4 place payout - we'll pay out one place per every 4 boats.  We are trying to help whomever gets the last place payout at least the entry, maybe a bit more back.  

Upcoming tournament is at Lake Texoma - be sure to do your research and learn about the ramps that you can use - one side of the campground ramp on the main lake side of Catfish Bay is open, Alberta Creek is open - there are some others.

See you March 22, 2014!!!




February 2014
As our yo-yo weather keeps going - we wonder what will be for the start of our tournament season!  One day is beautiful, the next frozen!  Fingers crossed for good weather in March!



January 2014
Just a short note - winter is upon us and I know you are ready to get fishing!  It will be time soon enough.  Stay warm, enjoy the nice days.  Get those rods & reals ready and we'll see you in March!

Also - like the new logo? You can order this awesome logo on Hoodies, Long sleeve or short sleeve Tees.  Visit the Rules and Forms page for the order form.

Last year we had a low turnout and the club did suffer a bit.  We thank everyone that donated for different things throughout the year to help out. We appreciate  you!!



ps..make sure to check out the rules as a few have changed, as always - give us a shout if you have any questions.




December 2013...
We didn't do so well with Newsletters in 2013.  We promise to do
much better in 2014!!!!

Have a great Holiday season and we'll see you in March!!
