New Season, New Faces


Colton Blomberg and Colton Self with their winning fish at the season opener at Nelson Lake

The Badlands Bass Bandits began their 2017 tournament season with a bang. With the crowd favorite Nelson Lake starting the year off and reports of big fish being caught all winter the anticipation was high for some great fishing. Despite the power plant shutting down their big unit a few days earlier and dropping water temperatures it did not disappoint. An early morning fog delay changed the typical boat launch to a shotgun start and all 22 teams blasted off with a 5mph speed limit until 8am. Fishing was very consistent for most teams throughout the day but for the team of Colton Blomberg and Colton Self a great stretch of rocky bank and a black and blue jig yielded three great Largemouth Bass totaling 15.29 lbs, a new club record for the lake, with a 5.88lb big bass winning kicker fish. 2nd place team of Eric Vossler and Hunter Wood broke in his new Skeeter Boat in the right direction with 12.79lbs of Nelson Lake Largemouth and the trifecta of Bob and Jeanette Reinbold teaming up with Thomas Leintz rounded out the top three with 10.65lbs. It was a great day on the water and an incredible performance by the top teams. Thanks everyone and see you May 20th at New Johns.
