Columbus Bassmasters Team Wins Ohio Bass Nation Club Championship

Grand Lake St. Marys

CBM put three teams in the Ohio Bass Nation Championship at Grand Lake on a two day tournament July 19 and 20th.  This was a first time on the lake for 80 percent of CBM team and most had no pre-fish time on the water other than a short day the weekend before.

CBM had a team in third place at end of the day on Saturday.  Sunday was a foggy day and allowed many to fish some new water with the knowledge that had from the day before which resulted in bringing in several nice bags of fish.

CBM Team #2 – Brian Vogelsang, Terry Hall, Bret Love and Dave Sprow led the way and brought in 8 fish on Sunday that weighed over 18 pounds.  They had some real studs in the bag and also had big fish for day two.


 Weigh in was exciting to watch to see this team move into the lead and win first place for two days and win 4 places to fish for Ohio in the next Federation tournament which will be held in Minnesota in a couple of months.


Al Evans presents the team with plaques and $2500 as first place prize which will help with preparing for their next trip.

Great couple days with a good group of guys who got the job done on Sunday!  Good Luck to Brian, Bret, Dave and Terry at State Tournament.
