The White River Bass Masters (WRBM) hosted their 1st tournament of the 2016 regular season at Brookville Lake in Brookville, IN, on Sunday, April 17, 2015. Tournament day was treated to some good spring weather and the tournament field was full of anticipation at the morning launch. The report going in from those that were able to practice was mixed. Some guys caught some good ones where others could not conjure up a bite.

At the conclusion of the day the results showed that not many fish would be caught but some very nice fish would be caught including the club new Smallmouth Bass record. Ryan McGuire caught the new Smallmouth record within the last hour of the tournament. His Smallmouth weighed in at 4.49 lbs.
Another really big bass was caught during this tournament. Kevin Voorhis caught the second largest Largemouth Bass in club history and that fish was big enough for 1st place and Big-Bass of the tournament. Kevin caught a 7.18 lb Largemouth early in the tournament and that 1 fish propelled him to victory.
Coming in 2nd place with 2 Largemouth Bass that weigh 5.15 lb’s was WRBM newcomer Cory Lorts.
Finishing in 3rd place with 2 Smallmouth Bass weighing 4.71 lb’s was Tim Cooper.
WRBM will be at it again on May 22 at Geist Reservoir in Fishers, IN.
