Annual Awards Banquet

Our club had a fantastic year in 2016 and our Annual Awards Banquet is scheduled for January 21st, 2107 at Osprey Point in Lakeside.  The club will be providing a great selection of BBQ ribs, chicken, and ham with all the fixings including non-alcoholic drinks.  All we ask is that you bring your eating utensils and a dessert if you would like to contribute.  We will be renewing memberships, voting for officers for 2017, and telling plenty of fishing stories.  Social hour starts at 6pm with dinner being served around 7pm.  We also have some great items up for our raffle thanks to our fantastic sponsors. If you have any nominations for our annual "Dull Hook Award" contact the current Club President Ken Carpenter.

On another note, all of the Johnson family would like to extend there greatest thanks to the club for our support and friendship through the hard times they have had to endure due to Brian's untimely passing on November 17th, 2016.  They have offered to sponsor a small club tournament on a yearly basis for club members only in memory of Brian and his love for bass fishing.  We will have more details on that in the near future.  Also, Angie and Kobe Johnson wish to especially thank everyone who showed up at Brian's Celebration of Life.

The last little detail I would like to mention is that we have put up a Classifieds section on the website.  If any of our members have boats, tackle, or fishing related items for sale, we will list them on the page for free.  Email your stuff for sale to TenmileBC@gmail.com

November at Tenmile and Next Year!

We have had quite a year this year on our annual club tournament trail.  We had some great times and got to see some real gorillas caught every tournament. The final tournament of the year ended on November 12th, 2016.  We had a great turnout with 17 boats blasting off.  The final results came in with Mike Boyd and Mack Rounsaville who weighed in five fish for 13.92lbs.  Mike and Mack make a great team as this isn't the only time we have seen these two great fisherman win together.  Congratulations guys!!  Second place went to  Ron Green and Det Mason who weighed in five fish for 13.86lbs.  Third place went to Keven Eberhardt and Josh Bailey who had five fish for 12.38lbs.  The big fish for the tournament was caught by Kevin Eberhardt with a 6.25 fall gorilla.  Second big fish was Ron Green's 5.26lbs chomper.  Thank you everyone who fished with us this year.

This year our annual awards banquet dinner will be held on January 21st, 2017 at Osprey Point in Lakeside, Oregon.  We will be having some great food and all of our annual awards will be handed out including the dreaded 'Dull Hook' award.  If you have any nominations for out Dull Hook award, please send them to Tenmile.BC@gmail.com.  Our biggest fish of the year came out of Tenmile Lakes at 8.97lbs which was caught in September by Stephen Sutphin.  You sir, can always find big fish. This years angler of the year goes to Ray Austin, who is one hell of a fisherman and has won AOY for the second year in a row.  While he always talks about having one of the slowest boats in the club, it obviously doesn't matter how fast your boat goes if you can catch fish like Ray.  Great job Ray Austin, Congratulations!

 After our tournament committee met on December 11th, we all came to agreement on our schedule for 2017.  Our schedule for 2017 can be viewed here.

Below are the results for the November tournament and our Angler of the Year results.  See everyone at this year's banquet!  Bring a dessert or side dish if you can!

We also have the schedule for the bigger tournaments on Tenmile Lakes for 2017.
