Derby at takenitch

Derby at takenitch

Sounds kinda cool, dont know if Id make the drive over just for bass but could lump in a little salt water or somethin to round it out. Things are usually just gettin real interesting here in the valley about that time. Will keep checkin on ya though never know might if you get somethin organized. Love to fish new water Especialy w/a little hometeam guidence. Only have small livingston and pontoon boats , are they workable for Takenitch or do ya need a motor ?

LOL yeah right. I fish Tahkenitch for Coho every year, and have caught every kind of fish imagineable in there. It's a HUGE lake. Very sustainable populations of bass.

Id like to tag along with someone who knows the lake. I fished it years ago but never had a much luck but have heard some awesome war stories about the fishin. I heard that is a regular stop on the B.A.S.S tournament circuit. Dunno how valid it is but would love to try it out.

I don't think this will be classified as an actual derby, but rather a get together of people with similar interests, catching bass and having fun doing it. There will be no actual prizes, etc. So the ODFW and OSP laws don't really apply. It's just people getting together to fish and brag about who gets the bigger fish

You are advertising a Derby?

You are advertising a Derby?

Not trying to ruin your fun just want you to be aware that if someone that is trying to sponsor or host a get together then it could be condsidered a tournament,derby etc...Our bass club is not a big club with maybe 6-7 boats usally.You dont have to give prizes or anything.A small club was cited last year at Cottage Grove for not contacting anyone. The"group of guys that are fishing to have brag rights" you still have the "group" of guys.You are advertising on here Derby anyone?I have seen many times on here some one advertising on having a derby for somewhere.The officals can be real nasty about things if they want to.We as a small club have run into strict by the book officals a time or two and just want you to be aware and not have problems.

Our club is just a group of guys getting together for some fun and bragging rights as well.We do give plaques for 1,2,3 place and have option pot. You do not have to have a bass boat just a boat with a live well(cooler with areator)that can keep your fish alive if you want to weigh them in.
