Re: Your California State Champions.
I also want to say. Thanks to everyone who supported the CBC Teams - I can't put into words how much we appreciate the support and the kind words from all those that fished with us. I didn't hear all of the talk in the crowd, but what I did hear made me feel great. I had many teams ask us to keep it going next year and beyond. That means a lot to us that our anglers enjoyed the format enough to want to do it again. We will consider it and if we can get the solo event rolling for the rest of this season we will definitely consider it.
As for the Solo events - We have the following events coming up. Don't miss out on another opportunity and a serious title and a great payback.
Don Pedro - April 8th
Folsom - April 9th
Nacimiento - April 15th
Clear Lake April 22nd
Now's your chance to make a difference and keep the CBC Running strong into 2012 and also a chance at winning a great title and a big check. From what I hear its fun!
Personally, although it is incredibly tough work (on top of my other 2 full time jobs - plus) and hard on my wonderful wife, running these events is a blast for us as well, personally I enjoy getting a chance to meet, talk to and share fishing stories with the best anglers in the state and some great people. The leaderboard from this event and last years solo's are stocked full of incredible anglers!!
Lastly - I'd like to thank Andy Mercado and Chris Gilkinson for their hard work and dedication. I can see these guys being some of the top directors in the state soon. Thanks guys!!
Also - a big thanks to Melanie and the Crew at Glory Hole Sports, Jerimy and all the fine folks at the US Bureau of Reclamation at New Melones, the California DFG and Mike and Brenda Tobey for putting in hard hours behind the scenes.
Another big thanks to Mike Meier, Doug McKa and I know there were others that I didn't see for helping us with fish that needed needling. We had 1 dead fish and 1 fish eaten by an Osprey - so 2 total dead fish in two days of fishing.
Full results, video, on the water photos and awards photos will be up tomorrow, I am sorry for the delays in that!
