Here's how our anglers placed in the state fish-off on Lake Champlain:
Fishing lakes and rivers around the northeast area is what the members of the North East Bass Anglers club do best. This club has been in existence for over 30 years and is affiliated with FLW. Club members raise money through fishing tournaments and donating the proceeds to various organizations. We have some of the best anglers in New England as our members such as Bill Penney who has taken first place in a State Tournament and went on to fish the Regional Tournament. Ray Reardon, and Mike Bycenski were also top qualifiers in state tournaments. Earn points to qualify for the state tournament and win money by catching the most weight of fish. Test your skills by trying to reel in the lunker! Our most popular place to catch those largemouth and smallmouth bass is on Lake Congamond in Southwick, MA.
Our club is in charge of the booth at the Springfield Sportsmen's Show which is the largest sportsmen's show in the northeast. Our club consists of 28 fishermen, and currently has two openings for new members. We get together and have fun bass fishing!
