2015 Grand Champion is Chuck Steinbauer

Congratulations Chuck Steinbauer 
2015 Grand Champion!
Chuck with a 27 incher from 2011
Chuck Steinbauer caught a 26 inch fish on Bay Lake on a bladed jig while pre-fishing for the Bass Snatcher tournament on Bay Lake in late May.  That fish was good enough to take the Grand Championship this year and that makes Chuck our fourth two time Grand Champion. Chuck previously won the Grand Championship in 2007.

For the second year in a row two time Grand Champion Chuck Fields came in 2nd place.  This year it was with a 24 1/2" fish from the Whitefish Chain caught on a tube on June 1st.

And for the second year in a row two time Grand Champion Dave Maas came in 3rd Place.  His fish was a  23 incher caught from Bulldog Lake on a Lunkerhunt Lunker Frog in the"Croaker" color.

5th Fish For Me

23" Lunkerhunt Lunker Frog color Croaker
I got my 5th fin of the year on May 28th at Bulldog Lake.  I know 23" isn't big enough as Chuck Steinbauer has one that is bigger.
