Accepting New
2016 Team Membership

 The Indy Bass Club is a “Team Based Club” meaning that a two person team with a Boater and Co-Angler joins as a team and will fish all the regular scheduled tournaments as a team. Annual team membership is $60 and members are required to complete and sign the “Official Liability Release” form.

 The Indy Bass Club is more than a bass fishing club, of course we fish just like all of the other clubs however we also do what we can to help others in the club become better anglers. We will have a fishing class that we call IBC101 at our first pre-season meeting. We have members from our own club share their knowledge and experience by putting together a presentation and instructing the club on different aspects of fishing. We sometimes share information before a tournament and always after a tournament. We usually meet for breakfast or dinner before or after most any event and everyone is invited. Each year we schedule two (2) day out of town tournaments allowing everyone to hang out on Saturday night. These are great opportunities to learn and make new friends.

 Although we have tournament entry fee’s the fees are modest at $90 per tournament, per team which includes a 75% tournament payout on $70 and $20 goes towards the daily big bass pot for 1st and 2nd Big Bass, just enough to provide payouts that help maintain a level of competitive interest but not so much that it becomes the main focus. We do not consider ourselves a money club, this club is not a good match for someone looking to make money. We have a number of very good competitive anglers but we are not cut throat. We pay out 75% of entry fees to the top 3-4 finishing positions at each tourney. The other 25% is saved in a “Classic and Elite 8 and Expenses” fund and is paid out during our end of the season “Classic” tournament and the “Elite 8” tournament.

 The Indy Bass Club will begin accepting new “Team” memberships for the 2016 season on November 16th 2016. Membership will be closed when we reach (25) paid memberships or April 15th 2016. We look forward to hearing back from you as you consider joining the Indy Bass Club.

2015 Elite 8

Entry into the Elite 8 tournament is earned by finishing the regular season in the top eight teams and a ninth team is added as a Wild Card Team that was the highest finishing team in the 2015 Classic that wasn’t already in the top eight teams. The Elite 8 tournament is a no entry fee tournament with an accrued purse that ties up the whole season and gives all teams the incentive to compete at all tournaments and give their very best all season long. The date of the tournament is selected as part of the season schedule but the lake is determined by a blind drawing. Each team submits a lake of their choice into a drawing and there is no pre-fishing allowed.  Hardy Lake was drawn to be the Elite 8 Lake for 2015.

Congratulations to the team of Kevin and Terry Mobley for putting together the only five fish limit and taking 1st Place honors weighing in at 9.25 pounds. 2nd place Nate Redman and Jacob Spencer with 4.24lb which included a Big Bass at 2.64lb.  3rd place Jason Lough and Jason Burnett with 3.68lb, 4th place Mike Botos and Josh Ray with 2.60lb, 5th place Cecil Lillard and Tom Nelis with 1.29lb, 6th place Phil Harbaugh Jr and Phil Harbaugh Sr with 1.29lb, 7th place Jeremy Crossley and Phil Mobley with 0.0lb, 8th place Ken Bilyeu Jr and Ken Bilyeu Sr with 0.0lb and 9th place Wayne Judd and Byron Johnson with 0.0lb.

This was one tough tournament starting with fog limiting visibility to about 50’ but Kevin and Terry Mobley put together a winning pattern that no one else was able to do. By the numbers we put in (144) man/woman hours to catch 13 fish with an average weight of 1.72lb. That’s right, one keeper for every 11.07 hours fished pretty much says it all.
