Please consider fishing this benefit tournament or making a donation to help T-Clyde's family with his arrangements.

Yesterday, we had the very difficult time of announcing the passing of our good friend, and fellow bass fisherman, Leonard “T-Clyde” Norbert to our fishing family. “T-Clyde” as he was known to all of us was a great guy and will be missed by all at our area bass fishing events. “T-Clyde” passed last Saturday while fishing a bass tournament with the trolling motor down and a rod in the water.
Now the family needs your financial help with his services. We, the bass fishing community need to step up. His friends are putting on a benefit bass tournament with 75% of the proceeds going to his family. The tournament information is below:

Saturday, August 18th
Myette Point Landing
Entry Fee $110 per boat
Places paid are $500, $300, & $200 plus one Big Bass
Payout based on 30 Boats
5 Fish, 12” Minimum
Blast off at safe light
Weigh in at 3:00
No surface drives, water cooled motors only
Registration will be at the landing the morning of the tournament beginning at 4:30

Donations are also being accepted and appreciated. Donations can be made at the tournament or checks made out to Bullet Bass Club with “T-Clyde” fund written in the memo. Donations can be mailed to Bullet Bass Club, 5117 Old Jeanerette Road, Lot 2, New Iberia, LA 70563. Once all the tournament proceeds and donations are received, any tournament cash will be given directly to the family. All checks that the BBC receives will be tabulated and the club will write out one check to the family.

Any questions, please contact Ron Boutte at 337-577-4522


An artical written by my good friend, Chris Vedrines, is very appropriate and is reproduced here:

It is with very heavy hearts that your Hawg Fight family must announce the passing of our tournament committee member Leonard Norbert. Leonard “T-Clyde” Norbert was one of the founding five (5) Hawg Fight tournament committee members and a fixture in the Wednesday night Hawg Fights. “T-Clyde” as he was known to the fishing community was mild mannered, always smiling, and was known as an all-around great guy to the bass fishing community. “T-Clyde” was a member of the Bullet Bass Club, Louisiana Bass Anglers, and a board member of the Hawg Fight’s series of bass tournaments. He also fished many of the “open” tournaments and was always in the running for the championship. “T-Clyde” passed away on Saturday while fishing a bass tournament. Trolling motor was down and he had a line in the water and was fishing till the very end. The Hawg Fights speaks for the local bass fishing community in sending our condolences to his love ones and friends.
Gone way too soon and will be missed by all that knew him.
Rest in Peace our friend.



A Louisiana Bass Cats meeting was held yesterday evening at Ronnie Dressell's.   Randall "Rooster" Savoy provided the very delicious shrimp and crab stew.  I am certain that everyone there had seconds at least.   If points were awarded for the best cooks of the year Randall would take them home.   But now onto club business.  

The gift card drawing was held and several names drawn weren't in attendance so they did not win.  Finally, Braxton Resweber was drawn and he had fished (and won) the last tournament so he won the gift card.

Nominations for the location of the next tournament, on August 19th, were voted on and Bayou Benoit was chosen and pairings drawn.

Tournament Pairings and Blast Off order are as follows.

Cody and Mike L.
Ronnie and Nonky
TJ and Cade
Jean and Lawrence
Braxton and Chris
Mike S. and Barry
Clay and Max
Randall and Phil
Blake and Mr. Lynn
Ben and Bucky
Zach and Pete

Hopefully things will start cooling off before our September tournament but for this one it will probably still be hot and humid.  Remember to liberally apply sun screen and stay hydrated.  The Basin is on the low side so be careful when running. 

See ya’ll there.

HAWG FIGHT - sinitiere

Your Hawg Fight Series Tournament 10 was hosted yesterday evening out of Marshfield Landing.  Twenty Seven boats braved the hot and humid conditions and some were even able to avoid the thundershowers in the area.    Fishing was tough with only 10 of the 27 teams bringing limits to the scales.  The team of Todd Citrano and Preston Lopez took home the first place purse of $540 plus they also weighted in a big bass of 5.65 pounds bringing their total winnings to $810 for last evenings fishing.  Second place went to area veteran fishermen Ronnie Dressel and Kevin Suit with 7.04 pounds and they won $324.  Third place went to Mike Sinitiere and Brook Morrison with 5.87 pounds for $216.  Your next Hawg Fight tournament will be held on August 15th at 5:30 PM out of Myette Point Landing.  Entry fees must be paid by 1:00 PM on Tournament day at Cajun Guns & Tackle.  There are three teams with only four tournaments completed.  Remember, you must fish five tournaments to be eligible to fish the classic.  The location of the Hawg Fight Classic, scheduled for August 26th,  will be determined by a vote of the eligible participants.  Announcement will be made soon on how that vote will be taken.

Ben and Zach have extended their First Place lead and look to be just about uncatchable.  Johnny and Brandon have held onto second place and Darrell and T-Clyde have held onto third place.

The Louisiana Bass Cats Tournament Number 5 was fished on Sunday out of Myette Point under sunny, very hot and humid conditions with heat indexes approaching 110 degrees. At the times when the clouds blocked the sun and you were lucky enough to find a little breeze it was bearable. When the sun was shining and there was no breeze it was brutal. With the basin water level continuing to fall fishing was expected to be pretty good and limits were captured by all teams. When the weigh in was complete, father and son team Braxton and Paul Resweber took home first place with a total weight of 13 pounds 15 ounces worth $180 and they added another $90 for the 4 pound big bass of the tournament. Second place went to the team of Randall Savoy and Jason Pecoraro with 11 pounds 10 ounces and they won $108 for their efforts. Third place went to Ronnie Dressel and Phil Ransonet with 11 pounds two ounces and they collected a $72 payday. Our next meeting will be on August 6th at Aries Marine and our next tournament will be on August 19 location TBD. Remember to stay hydrated and liberally apply sunscreen during all outdoor activities. Click for full results
