A pair of Castiac bass
I had the best year yet in the California Bass Federation (TBF) Region 7 Qualifiers and managed to finish in 17th at Castaic (1.21.17), 18th at Pyramid (2.25.17), 9th at Pyramid (3.12.17), and 2nd at Castaic (5.6.17.) This allowed me to both qualify with points standings (11/41 in Region 7, 46/193 in the State) and win the Ventura County Bass Club Club Champion spot for the State Championship and the TBF National Semi-Final event at Lake Havasu (Nov. 2017.)

A Lot Going On This Year!

A summer event for Walmart

     Not the least of which is the fact that the Rayovac FLW Series Championship Tournament about to start, but Matt has been a very busy angler.  Between tournaments and filming for a Television show, he’s landed his own keeper at home!  Or, did he get hooked himself?

     Grand Lake O’ Cherokees, Oklahoma in April promised to be a bass-on-beds bonanza and the popular lake certainly did not disappoint at the Rayovac FLW Series held April 16-18, 2015!  Nearly every one of the top Pro’s reported catching their limits by sight fishing, including Matt Massey.

The bass are getting bigger at the 2015 BASS Nation Western Divisional!  Today there were three bass at the scales over 10 lbs. and the current Big Bass of the tournament now stands at an even 11 lbs!  There were even a few nice size smallmouth today!  And a few reports of catching double-digit bass only to have to let them go because CA regulations require that fish must be hooked inside the mouth at all times, not just when sight fishing.

     The 2015 BASS Nation Western Divisional at Clear Lake, CA started this year with a fog delay for an hour and a half, creating concern during the important morning bite, according to many anglers who anticipated an early limit of eager plus-sized largemouth bass.  Despite the delay there were some great bass caught and the next two days of the three day event only promises to be better.
