Free Magazine

Summer 2015 Hi, First I Would Like To Thank You All For Supporting Westernbass and Our Sponsors. As You All Know, Our Sponsors Is What Makes This Magazine And All The Content FREE To You !!! The heat of the summer has finally hit us! We’ve already enjoyed some of the annual summer events with the Yamamoto Big Bass Challenge on the Delta and the WON Bass California Open at Clear Lake and we still have several more to look forward to including the frog events. The California Delta will welcome TWO frog events this year. For 2015, the Snag Proof Open and Angler’s Press will hold separate frog events. The ever-popular, longstanding, ORIGINAL frog only event - the Snag Proof Open will blast off for its 14th annual tournament on the first weekend of August (1st and 2nd) as it always has. There are some changes to the Snag Proof Open format for this year. NEW for the anglers: - The event will be run by Randy Pringle and the BBT staff, who will be donating their time, allowing for a 100% entry fee payback. - Boat order will not be by signups. There will be a lottery draw for boat release order. - All entries received by July 15 will receive a FREE breakfast on Day 1 AND a FREE BBQ at weigh-in of Day 1. In this issue of the WesternBass.com Magazine, you will be able to find several tips to get a jump on your frog fishing as well as other summertime tips, tricks, techniques and other fishing news. STAY tuned to the site in mid-July as WesternBass will travel to Florida for the 2015 ICAST show. We will be there to keep you up to date on the latest and greatest industry innovations. Until then, enjoy the summer issue! Wayneg
