Congratulations to Ed & Rodger for 1st place finish at 2019 Classic.

This year, membership fee has been raised from $15 to $20.  Hope this doesn’t discourage anyone not to fish with us. Will use $5 from membership for classic pot.

Not accepting any new boats into group this year as of 5-16-19.. Please see Facebook page for westmichigan bassers for more details..

Welcome to West Michigan Bassers 2019

We’ve made it to 2019 and the schedule is now available including a link to all the launches you will need to be at to compete.

Below is some information that you should be aware of before we get started this May.  Let’s make this year a great one!

👉Check us out on Facebook!👓👍

Artificial Bait Only -5 Fish Limit/Boat
$50.00 per boat for 2 man teams..

All one man boats will cost $45.00 ($40EF/$5BB) Same cost if partner does not show.

  • (New this year) We will draw for take-off spots at each lake.

Yearly Membership Fee $15 per person this includes subs.

At each tournament we will confirm the next lake and start time, so if you miss a tournament, make sure you call me to verify we haven’t switched lakes or times.

Cell – 616- 550-1144 Paul Nelson

Looking for sponsors this year to contribute to prizes & website fees. If you know a company or organization that would like to have a spot on webpage please let me know.

Classic Tournament:

  ****Open to all members who have fished at least 3 regular season tournaments
  -Total weight for 2 days. Entry fee $100 per boat. Includes Big Bass
– Separate big bass for each day.

Ok guys with news of BBT not running this year I will be changing the way we welcome new members. Starting immediately (3-24-19) I will NOT accept any new members.

Guidelines to this are as follows:

  • If you fished at least 1 tournament with us last year, you’re OK
  • If you already contacted me about fishing this year, you’re OK
  • If I accepted you on Facebook West Michigan Bassers page, you’re OK


I will NOT allow any new boats to join at launch the day of any tournament. Sorry for these changes, but lakes we fish can only support so many vehicles with the size of parking lots.

To help allow as many new members as possible to join us, if you are planning on fishing with us and fit guidelines above please go to westmichigan bassers facebook page and follow directions on signing up for which lakes you plan on fishing.

I will be reviewing the results of this change before opening day to see if we have room for more boats, so if you really want to fish with us contact me after 5-15-19 for final answer.

Thank you,

Good Fishing!!
