HAWG FIGHT - sinitiere team

The dust has settled on your 2018 Hawg Fight Series of Bass Tournaments and the cream has risen to the top.  Ben Suit and Zach Suit ran away with the series championship.  Throughout the eleven tournaments they had two first places and two second places coupled with other high finishes.  It was close for a while but they continued to hold their lead until the very end.   Ben and Zach collected $300 for the series championship.   Darrell Mitchell vaulted over a couple of teams without his treasured partner Leonard “T-Clyde” Norbert and captured second place for the tournament series.  I am sure that “T-Clyde” was watching over him yesterday evening and was his usual smiling self when it was determined that his team had captured second place overall for the tournament series.   Third place went to Brandon Sellers and Johnny Schexnayder.  Brandon and Johnny started the year very strong and actually won 3 of the 11 tournaments which is an amazing performance based on the quality of fishermen that fish these tournaments.    A hardy congratulations to these three fine teams.   An important announcement will be following on the Facebook Page with information for the qualifiers that will be fishing the Hawg Fight Classic Tournament to be held on August 26th

Now, it’s time for all of us to begin preparations for the Classic Tournament.  Throughout this year’s 11 tournaments $10 from each boat was retained.  Couple that with the classic entry fee of $100 per boat and we should have a great tournament and the top teams and big bass winners will be very happy with their winnings and very proud to have beat most of the best bass fishermen in our area.

The classic meeting will be Wednesday, August 22nd at 6:30 PM at Billeaud’s Too, 1512 Weeks Island Road, New Iberia, LA  70560.  Meal and soft drinks will be provided by Billeaud’s.  However, BYOB!  Call Mike Sinitiere at Phone: 337-321-1178 should there be any questions.

Your tournament committee has worked hard all year to ensure a successful tournament series.   All tournament decisions have been made by a majority vote of the tournament committee members.  However, this is where things change and the participants will be required to make the decision.  As indicated in the rules, the location of the classic will be determined by a vote of the eligible participants.  During the meeting, all present members will vote on the location of the Hawg Fight Classic Tournament scheduled for August 26th.    The Classic landing will be one of the four that we have fished from this year.  They include Marshfield, Bayou Benoit, Myette Point, and Franklin Canal.  The one with the most votes will be chosen.  Entry fee is $100 per boat and will be collected at the meeting.  Anyone unable to attend the meeting must pay the entry fee prior to Friday, August 24th at 5:00 PM at Cajun Guns and Tackle.

58 Persons, approximately 29 teams have qualified to fish the classic.  Total retained throughout the year, for the Classic, from the bi-weekly tournaments is $2,740 less $300 for the Series Champions, Ben & Zach Suit.  That leaves $2,440 plus the $100 per boat Classic entry fees for a tournament pot that should be in excess of $5,000.    Total places paid and big bass percentages will be finalized and announced during the meeting and on this Facebook page the following day.

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:

An artical written by, 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.

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
