Welcome to our new website, the accolades go to William Hamblin, III ( Big Water Bass Club ), Youth Director Ron Guilfioil Jr. and Treasurer Doug Hedberg. If you see them let them know your thoughts.
We are working on Basslines and with board approval we should have a deal ironed out that can make the newsletter self supporting. We should ave things done at the December board meeting and go to press with a spring issue due before the April meeting.
With the new website we need every club to provide us with an email contact this will enable us to provide clubs with current information.
ESPN Productions/ BASS has opened the line of communication with the federations and lot of good things is happening. November 22-23, 2023 here was a meeting in Atlanta, GA all federation presidents were invited, to discuss a five (5) year business plan for the federation. I lected not to go because there are 5 divisional reps that should be at these meetings not 46 presidents the total meeting time was about 8 ours over 2 days. Chuck Rolfsmeyer from Wisconsin is our rep and is well versed in the needs of the federation. We talked on the phone and ia email and he knew the needs of MI.
I will be going to Tulsa, OK for the national business meetings and youth directors business meetings.
Ed Rodgers (Backwoods Bassbusters) is the MI contender this year, Ed finished 4th over all at the Northern Divisional on Georgian Bay Midland, Ont. He will be fishing on Keystone Lake for a shot at going to the Classic. So if you see Ed wish him well better yet if you know anything about Keystone let him know, you can send it to me at email@example.com and I will forward it to him.
Be safe, be happy,

Once again we have made it through another tournament season. Muskegon Lake came alive, at least with wind and rain for the State Championship that kept the big lake closed both days. The weather forecast for Friday night had the waves subsiding from 7-9’s down to 5-7 footers. Both mornings, small craft warnings were in effect by the Coast Guard which helped to direct the decision to close access to Lake Michigan. Phil Jones earned himself the title of State Champion with a two-day catch of nine fish that weighed in at 20.38 pounds. Congratulations to everyone that made the team, it was hard earned by all. Going into the second day the cut was 5.28 pounds, which effectively kept everyone in the hunt for one of the thirteen spots to make the trip to Ontairo’s Georgian Bay in September 2023.
By the banquet clubs had to have designated their five person teams that would be fishing for club weight. The top three clubs for the event were: Western Michigan Bassmasters with a team weight of 28.24 pounds, Macatawa Bay Bass Club with 27.24 pounds and Red Cedar Bassmasters with 25.54 pounds. For those that were able to stick around may remember second and third being flipped when announced. This was due to a weight not being counted which should have been counted for Macatawa Bay Bass Club. Congratulations to these clubs for there effort and catch over the two days. An improvement in reporting of the club weights will be made for next year. Clubs will be provided a form to will fill out prior to submitting your team weight. What this will do is to standardize what we get from everyone and I feel that will make things better, or at least easier for the people having to do the review.
Randy VanDam (D&R Sports) and Pat Kleppert (Ranger Boats) were each able to bring a Ranger boat to the banquet which made for an impressive entrance into the facility. Pat brought a Ranger 185 which is being raffled off by Ranger at their June 2023 dealers meeting (need not be present to win) to establish a college fund in Mike James name. Anyone interested in tickets should contact Pat. Dave Vorderburg (Dave-White Chevrolet) was also on hand for the entire event and helped out as he had done all season for the Classic Series. Without the support of them and the rest of the MBCF sponsors we would not be where we are today.
Pat and John spoke at the banquet while the club changes were being made from each of the teams by Burnadette. Speaking of changes in rosters, everyone needs to be reminded that again this year that was a hold up in getting the parings announced. Individual clubs come in with just a couple of changes and think that it is no problem. What they are forgetting is multiply that by the 30-40 clubs that each have a couple of changes and it is now around half the field!
How can we make that part of the diner bateau mouche better? There have been some suggests to establish a cut off date for changes. Teams that have made their changes prior to that date would be rewarded by being put into the earlier flights, and those teams that had a change (even if only one change) after the cut-off would be put into a draw after the people without changes. Another idea was to charge each club an additional set fee for the event. Then, after the tournament is over to reward those clubs that had no changes by splitting that pot among only them. The idea of a cut for the second day was also brought up again. It was suggested to take the top 120 people (60 boats) for day two. The feeling was that consistency in a multiple day event is just as important as well a single good day. I am sure that there are other ideas or some combination of ideas that you may have that have not been brought up yet.
I think that everyone will agree that the banquet this year was a significant improvement to what we have had in the past. Everyone needs to thank Dave Elmblad who lives in that area for his help in doing the scouting to find the location and some lodging sites. When someone comes forward to say that “I know of a good spot to hold the banquet” that is a big help compared to going in blind trying to find everything out on your own. Each year the State Championship seems to be better than the last, and I hope that with more suggests from you next years will even be that much better.
NEW BOATING ACCESS SITE ON LAKE ST. CLAIR
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE, 03 OCT 01

DNR OPENS NEW BOATING ACCESS SITE ON LAKE ST. CLAIR
LANSING–Michigan Department of Natural Resources officials today announced the opening of a new boating access site at L’Anse Creuse Bay on Lake St. Clair near Mount Clemens. The new Clinton River Cutoff Boating Access Site will have
three skid piers capable of launching boats up to 35 feet in length into the freshly dredged channel. A modern restroom facility also will be available next spring for the convenience of launch ramp users.
“Southeast Michigan was in need of better access to the substantial boating and fishing waters provided by Lake St. Clair, and this launch fulfills part of that need for boaters,” said Rodney Stokes, DNR Parks and Recreation Bureau Chief.
Lake St. Clair offers anglers an abundance of fishing opportunities, including walleye, northern pike, muskie, smallmouth and largemouth bass, yellow perch, and other species. To get to the launch site, take I-94 to exit 236 (MetroBeach Highway) and go to Crocker Blvd. Turn right and go to Jefferson. Turn right (south) and go about two miles to the access site on the left. Admittance to the launch will cost $4 for a daily pass, or $24 for an annual pass.

Belated Thanks, Ralph !
Ralph Blasey, Environmental Director for the Avid Bass Anglers of Michigan, responded admirably last summer to our alert regarding the public meeting on the Pickeral Lake Access Site closure threat. He and his 16 year-old son attended the meeting on August 14 and were joined by only one other supporter for improvement of the site. The other 40 or so speakers were opposed to improvements, preferring instead to shut the access to boaters and allow swimmers, etc. to continue dominating the site.
Ralph then sent an e-mail to all federation members reviewing the situation and asking for help through a letter writing/e-mail/telephone campaign to the DNR. He delivered seven letters to the DNR from us, including one from Bruce Shupp, International Conservation Director. It was enough to avoid such a dangerous precedent. Some improvements are scheduled for the site and it will remain open.
Fisherman’s Landing at Muskegon Lake May Move, In 2023
Rumors were flying recently about Fisherman’s Landing; was it being sold for development as a commercial shipping port? Was the best tournament site in that part of the state just going to disappear? Was the city selling us out? I contacted the person who could give me the answers, Ric Scott, Director of Leisure Services in Muskegon. Ric’s job is to oversee recreational development in the city, and he explained the situation. The end of the lake where the ramp is has been designated a “port zone” for some time. Two different parties have talked with the city about acquiring the site to develop it into a port, and consequently, the city looked into options for “converting” (moving) the ramp to a different location. On January 28 the City Commission will make a decision on whether to move the ramp or not. If they choose to move it, the plans and funds are in place to expand Hartshorn Marina (located mid-lake on the south side) to accommodate as much parking, including expansion to 15 launching slips. Mr. Scott assures me they do not wish to discourage us or any other boaters, but in fact would provide an improved site. He added that the site would probably have more congestion, due to the existing marina, but in the end would probably be better, overall. If the commission approves changing the location, the existing ramp would not be closed until the new one is ready, probably in the spring of 2023. Nothing will change at the ramp in 2022. I’ll keep you posted as this issue develops.
Partnership Agreement with DNR Nears Reality
On December 17 Dennis Beltz and I met with DNR representatives in the Mason Building in Lansing to finalize the language in the draft partnership agreement. John Schrouder, Bill Boik and Gary Towns reviewed the document with us and very few changes were made, mostly for language clarification. The document is now being sent to the appropriate division chiefs for their approval and signatures. John and Bill will join us at the February meeting to let us know what is happening in Fisheries and Recreation Divisions, and hopefully we’ll have the signed document at that time. This landmark partnership will mean greater cooperation and coordination between DNR and the BASS Federation, something that can only help us in our bass interests in the future.
Many Federation members have asked, "How do I start a new club? The following are the steps to take when forming a new club.
Call B.A.S.S. at 334 272-9530 and ask for the Federation Department, then ask for all information required to register and form a new club.
After the information packet arrives read the information, follow the instructions. It will cost $15.00 a person to register your new club with B.A.S.S. and they will send confirmation that your club is registered.
Now your club wants to join the Michigan Bass Federation, Inc.

Indicate the President and Secretary.
M.B.F.I. dues are $15.00 per member.
With you B.A.S.S. confirmation, a roster, and dues you can send it to the board member that handles membership or you bring all of the same information to a presidents meeting.
Some points of information: There are 4 presidents meetings a year Oct. Dec. Feb. and April. Rosters and dues are due at the Dec. meeting. To be eligible for the State Championship a club must be represented at 2 of the 4 presidents meetings.
Membership and By-Laws
Of the State B.A.S.S. Federations, Michigan is the only one that has a scholarship program established for our members and their families. Established January 11, 1981 and named the Lew Borer Jr. Scholarship after the long time Michigan Federation Member. Through the years clubs within the State of Michigan have continued to contribute money to this fund, and the Michigan Federation made a bylaw change to donate a significant percentage of the money received from the yearly boat raffle. Started with $1,100.00 in 1981 when the Michigan Team to the Northern Divisional Tournament donated their winnings to establish the fund. Scholastic awards shall be granted from interest earned over the previous 12 months.
The application deadline is July 31 each year. By December 31 of that year, applicants will be notified as to the committee’s decision.
Complete Scholarship By-laws with-in MBCF By-Laws.
The following information has been developed to help the individual and the Club to become aware of the activities of the Federation. Please use this "handbook? As a source of information. There will be an updated Board of Directors Roster annually.
The Federation will financially assist clubs with their youth projects. To qualify for assistance, each club must send a letter to the Youth Director with a written description of the project and the amount of the requested money, by or before the April President’s meeting. The Board will review each request for it’s merits in educating and teaching the youth and that it adheres to the Federation goals and objectives for the preservation of bass fishing.
The monies will be awarded at the April President’s meeting.
For additional information contact the Federation President.
HOW TO CHANGE ADDRESS, ADD OR DELETE MEMBERS
The Federation maintains a master file of each member and each club. It is the responsibility of each club, to provide accurate up-to-date information regarding its members. It is extremely important that all address changes be communicated to the Federation. The information that is needed is:
SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER
The Federation purchases a liability insurance policy for the Federation sponsored tournaments. These tournaments include: the six Classic qualifying tournaments, the Classic, and the Championship. This insurance attempts to protect the Federation from damages caused during one of these tournaments. It does cover the damages caused by a contestant to non-tournament property. It does not cover the damages caused by one contestant to another during the event.
As described in the Tournament Rule No. 23, it is the responsibility of each boat owner to supply proof of liability insurance to the tournament officials.
If a contestant fishes the Divisional Tournament or the National Championship Tournament, B.A.S.S. will require a specific amount of liability insurance for each boater. The Federation liability insurance does not meet the B.A.S.S. requirements for individual liability insurance. Therefore additional coverage may be necessary. Each contestant must read the B.A.S.S. Tournament Rules very carefully.
CONSERVATION AND LEGISLATIVE CONCERNS
The Federation is dedicated to the preservation of our fishing resources. We recognize that to protect the waters and streams, it becomes the responsibility of everyone. To assist the State and local agencies in their attempt to pass laws., prosecute violators, and put public pressure in those areas that may jeopardize these resources, the Federation has a committee in place. This committee is in regular contact with the Michigan Department of Natural Resources, Michigan United Club (MUCC), and many State Legislators. We will offer our assistance and input in those issues relating to the protection of our waterways. We will bring to public attention those violators, and we will use our membership to bring pressure to help pass laws to protect our interest.
Any member with a concern or a possible violator, should contact the Chairman of this committee:
The Michigan B.A.S.S. Chapter Federation, Inc., will be governed by a Board of Directors composed of twelve (12) members. The primary goal of the Michigan B.A.S.S. Chapter Federation, Inc., shall be to preserve the sport of bass fishing.

In addition, it must have live well space to adequately maintain two (2) limits of fish alive. Maximum horsepower for all outboard motorboats used in a federation tournament shall not exceed the horsepower limitations set by the B.I.S./U.S. Coast Guard horsepower rating plate attached by the manufacturer. Each competitor agrees that the boat and motor used in the tournament may be inspected by factory trained personnel and/or tournament officials if there is any reason to suspect the horsepower is in excess of the rating. Normal maintenance to increase the performance of your engine is allowed. Changing or altering standard factory parts of your engine to increase the horsepower over the factory horsepower rating is forbidden. Falsifying information on entry forms, or altering the horsepower rating numbers on the motor or boat, would be grounds for immediate disqualification from M.B.C.F. tournaments.
VII. BOAT IDENTIFICATION:
Each boat may be given an inspection check by a tournament official prior to the start of each day. A numbered device will be given to each competitor which shall remain in the boat until turned in at each day’s weigh-in. This device should be displayed upon the request of a tournament official and turned in to the officials at each weight-in.
VIII PRE-TOURNAMENT PRACTICE:
There will be an official two (2) day practice period immediately preceding the first day of the tournament. While on the lake during official practice and during the tournament, a competitor may not have the assistance or advice of a professional guide, state or federal wildlife agency employee, or any other person deemed “professional expert” on these tournament waters by the tournament committee. DURING THE PRACTICE PERIOD, A COMPETITOR MAY NOT FISH WITH, NOR ENTER THE TOURNAMENT WATERS WITH, ANYONE OTHER THAN ANOTHER COMPETITOR OR A MEMBER OF THE COMPETITOR’S OWN HOUSEHOLD WITHOUT PERMISSION FROM THE TOURNAMENT DIRECTOR/CHAIRMAN. Each competitor agrees to report to the Tournament Officials any violation or infraction of these Tournament Rules. All practice fishing shall cease at 6:00 p.m. the evening prior to the start of the first day of tournament competitor. No tournament contestant shall be allowed on the tournament waters, for the purpose of locating fish, once competition has begun. However, this rule shall not be interpreted to prevent contestants from preceding by water to and from launch or docking facilities during the mornings prior to the start of competition or at the conclusion of each day’s competition.
VIII BOAT OPERATION:
A full discussion must be held between the two partners prior to a morning departure as to the schedule of boat operations. This schedule must permit each partner equal time to fish from the front of the boat, and to operate the trolling motor, so as to afford each partner the opportunity to fish his/her selected water an equal number of hours. Any contestant who, in the judgement of the officials, operates the boat in such a manner as to unfairly handicap his partner shall be disqualified. If you feel that you have had a “bad ride”, and that you have not had your fair share of fishing time, or location, you must make this protest to the tournament director, in writing, prior to signing your weigh-in slip.
X TACKLE & EQUIPMENT:
Artificial lures shall be used. Only one casting, spin-casting, or spinning rod may be used at any one time. No trolling will be allowed, however an electric motor may be used for slow maneuvering. The maximum length for any rod will be 8 feet, butt to tip. CB, marine radios, or mobile telephones are allowed for emergency use only during tournament hours.
XI OFFICIAL CHECKPOINT:
There shall be only one official point for check-out in the morning, and check-in in the afternoon. They will be announced at the pre-tournament meeting.
XII OFFICIAL CHECK-IN & FISHING LOCATIONS:
Official check-in is at least thirty minutes before tournament starts for boat owner and rider. Tournament starting and check-in times will be announced at the pre-tournament meeting. Contestants must check-in before the posted time. All contestants must start from the designated check-in area. Both competitors must remain in sight of each other’s catch, in order for their catch of the day to be scored in the tournament. Fishing on the tournament waters is permitted anywhere except within 50 yards of another competitor’s boat which was first anchored, with trolling motor up. An anchored boat may not block a narrow waterway. If you let one competitor’s boat within this 50 yard area, then you must let all competitors do so. OFF-LIMITS water so designated and posted by State, Federal, or announced by Tournament Officials must be honored by all competitors during official practice and competition. Failure to do so will be cause for disqualification.
XIII LEGAL FISH:
Largemouth and smallmouth bass minimum length of 14 inches in the longest straight line, with the mouth closed. A flat, straight rule will be used to determine the 14 inch length.
XIV DON’T KILL YOUR CATCH:
Each competitor is expected to keep his/her bass alive by use of a proper live well. All fish must be transported to the scales in designated fish weigh-in bags.
XV DEAD FISH:
For each legal bass weighed in dead, the competitor shall be penalized two ounces of weight (or 0.2 pounds depending on the scales used).
The final team standings shall be determined by the pound and ounce weight of each competitor’s catch during the tournament. The limit shall be (5) legal fish of the above species and varieties per day, or the Michigan State limit for each individual. Tournament officials may conduct checks for violations. In the event a competitor is found to have more than the above described limits in possession, the penalty shall be disqualification. Bass presented for weigh-in which fail to measure 14 inches shall accrue penalties at a rate of one pound for each short bass. The penalty shall be deducted from the total score of the contestant. Any bass that appears to have been mangled, mashed, mauled, or otherwise altered, will be weighted only at the discretion of tournament officials. Note: Culling down to a limit of fish must occur prior to the conclusion of fishing time. Culling shall not be done at the dock or weigh-in area.
In the event of a tie for any of the money winners, the monies shall be added and split evenly. Duplicate trophies, where applicable, will also be awarded. Example: first place tie, money from first and second place will be added and equally divided, two first place trophies will be awarded. The next award will be third place. Ties occur when both total weight and big bass weight are the same. In the case of a tie for last position for the Divisional Team determined from the State Championship Tournament, there will be a sudden death fish-off between the tied contestants under the direction of the Tournament Officials. Special rules for the sudden death fish-off will be established by the Tournament Officials.
XVIII STATE CHAMPIONSHIP:
State Championship standings will be determined by the pound-ounce system.
XVIIII STARTING TIME:
Safety is the only reason that the official tournament starting time will be delayed. Delays are at the discretion of the Tournament Director and the Tournament Committee.
You and your partner MUST check-in at the end of the fishing day, even if no fish were caught. Failure to check in may require a search for you and result in disqualification from the entire tournament. Emergency conditions will be up to the tournament committee. All contestants who check in late will be disqualified for the day only. LATE IS LATE, NO EXCEPTIONS!
Anyone accused of cheating will be brought before the Board of Directors of the Federation within thirty (30) days for a hearing, and if found guilty, will be suspended from M.B.C.F., for life and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
XXII TOURNAMENT OFFICIALS:
None of the above rules shall prohibit a properly designated tournament official from approaching or boarding any contestants boat at any time during the tournament.
XXIII RIDER’S FEE:
The rider’s fee shall be a minimum of $20.00 payable in advance to the boat owner unless otherwise agreed upon by both contestants.
During the official practice and competition days of any M.B.C.F. tournament no contestant may operate a boat unless that contestant has submitted documented proof of a minimum of $100,000 boating liability insurance to the M.B.C.F. Tournament Director. This documented proof must show an effective date and expiration date and must be received by M.B.C.F. on or before the application deadline date.
Each competitor must take the responsibility to report their anticipated absence from fishing at the second day of competition. Failure to report such absence in advance to the Tournament Director or Tournament Committee Chairman will be cause to disqualify the competitor from fishing the State Championship Tournament the following year.

Your B.A.S.S. Chapter Federation partnering with MUCC
What are the benefits of our B.A.S.S. Chapter Federation affiliation with the Michigan United Conservation Clubs (MUCC)?? Over the past couple years your Federation leadership has looked to answer this question and what has been realized as a result is only the beginning of the considerable opportunities that lie within the Federation and its chapters affiliating with the MUCC!
It is the mission of the Michigan United Conservation Clubs to Unite Citizens to Conserve Michigan’s Natural Resources and Protect OUR Outdoor Heritage. MUCC serves to create an alliance of the many different conservation organizations of different interests from hunting and fishing to hiking and boating for the common purpose of promoting the wise and scientific use of the natural resources we enjoy. Each individual organization, such as the B.A.S.S. Federation Chapters, is unique and prestigious in their own right, but bring to the table different values and ideas for the promotion, use, and protection of these resources. Through the collection of our affiliated clubs, the Michigan United Conservation Clubs proves an effective means of discussing and promoting the issues and concerns that are similar among these conservation groups.
Among the many benefits of MUCC, the Federation has drawn on the support of other conservation groups beyond bass anglers to largely increase your voice throughout the state. By nature, MUCC offers a network for the Michigan B.A.S.S. Chapters to bring your mission of promoting conservation through bass fishing to the table with these groups across the state - whether it be trout or walleye fisherman, or even hunters, trappers, or foresters.
PROMOTING YOUR IMAGE - This past June MUCC co-hosted with Michigan State University (MSU) the first annual OUTDOOR EXPO where people came from across the state to learn about the rich and diverse opportunities available for enjoying and sustaining our natural heritage. Here the Federation, as a partner of MUCC, was the face and voice to which attendees looked in learning our state’s opportunities in bass fishing. OUTDOORAMA is another of MUCC’s outdoor shows where the Federation has promoted its mission for many years, and the MICHIGAN OUT-OF-DOORS magazine, television, and radio show are opportunities lying in wait for promoting the joint efforts of the Federation as a partner of MUCC.
FISHERIES POLICY– As coolwater fishing regulations are reviewed through the coming year, the Federation will work with MUCC to seek out opportunities through the Michigan Department of Natural Resources (MDNR) for improvements to the current coolwater regulations. The Federation has also been key in supporting the MUCC’s efforts toward an AQUATIC SPECIES CONSERVATION ACT which would codify 22 existing state laws under MDNR and Natural Resources Commission (NRC) authority. This is an important step toward achieving a catch-and-release/no harvest fishing season (an initiative of the Federation which was voted on and passed by MUCC as MUCC policy this past summer), but more critically, an assurance that fisheries management will continue to be based on sound science with decisions made by science professionals.
FISHING & BOATING ACCESS – Again the Federation, in crafting further MUCC policy, has reaffirmed MUCC’s continued efforts toward increasing fishing and boating access opportunities across our state’s public waters.
YOUTH FISHING – Again MUCC and the Federation have been active in coordinating activities through a statewide fisheries youth education initiative – PROJECT FISH – a partnership between MUCC and its sportfishing affiliates, MSU, MDNR, and 4-H Youth Programs. This initiative has great potential in promoting existing Federation programs, such as CASTING KIDS, and has further opportunities in creating long-term involvement of youth with the Federation.
MUCC policy and initiatives are driven by its membership. MUCC policy is set by vote of our membership, but also a good deal of MUCC’s work is done through the MUCC Fisheries Committee. Incorporating the Federation in the MUCC decision making process - whether it be through participation of various BASS chapters at the local MUCC district level or at the state level through the Federation’s voice on the MUCC Fisheries Committee – has demonstrated benefits to the entire MUCC organization, while promoting the Federation’s interests and mission.
This two-way road of benefits is why I invite each individual chapter of the Michigan B.A.S.S. Chapter Federation, if your chapter is not already affiliated, to consider its affiliation with the MUCC. Chapter involvement in the local MUCC Districts allows chapters the benefit of being heard statewide through a second network of conservation leaders while being directly responsible for strengthening a relationship between two statewide leaders, MUCC and MI B.A.S.S. Chapter Federation, both working together to promote our state’s great fishery. Active B.A.S.S. Chapters in each MUCC District would allow your statewid

LANSING – State resource officials today announced that Largemouth Bass Virus appears to be spreading in southern Michigan lakes, and called upon anglers to help contain the disease and protect fish populations.
Largemouth Bass Virus (LMBV) is one of more than 100 naturally occurring viruses that affect fish, and is closely related to viruses found in frogs and other amphibians. Its origin and how it is spread are unknown. The virus is not known to infect humans, and infected fish are considered safe to eat. However, it is recommended that all fish should be thoroughly cooked as a precaution.
In the fall of 2020, biologists from the Michigan and Indiana Departments of Natural Resources discovered the presence of LMBV while jointly investigating a die-off of largemouth bass in Lake George, located on the Michigan-Indiana border near I-69.
The discovery marked the first time LMBV had been detected in either Michigan or Indiana and was the furthest north that the virus had been detected in the United States. It was first discovered in the Santee-Cooper Reservoir of South Carolina in 1995, following a die-off of largemouth bass. Since then, the virus has been detected in wild fish from North Carolina, South Carolina, Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, Kentucky, Mississippi, Texas, Missouri, Arkansas, Indiana, Illinois and Michigan.
It is now confirmed that the virus in Lake George was not an isolated event. LMBV has been found in another border lake between Michigan and Indiana, two additional Michigan lakes and three additional lakes in northern Indiana. The virus was also detected this year in lakes and reservoirs in Illinois for the first time.
Michigan DNR Fish Pathologist John Hnath said LMBV appears to infect other fish species, including smallmouth bass, bluegill and crappies, but has caused mortality to only largemouth bass. Most fish mortalities associated with the virus involve other stressors to the fish, including warm water temperatures and heavy fishing pressure.
“The DNR cannot eradicate this virus or treat affected wild fish populations,” Hnath said. “However, as we continue investigating this outbreak, we appreciate receiving reports of unusual fish mortalities.”
Consistent with the recommendations reported from the Largemouth Bass Virus Workshop III, sponsored Feb. 22 by ESPN and BASS Federation, the DNR is calling on bass clubs and others who target largemouth bass to voluntarily help reduce angling stress on largemouth bass populations during warm weather. DNR Fisheries Division Chief Kelley Smith noted the DNR will be monitoring lakes in southern Michigan this summer, in partnership with the Michigan BASS Federation.
“This disease has never been detected this far north, and we still do not know how largemouth bass populations will be affected in Michigan’s lakes,” Smith said. “We urge all members of the angling community to help us monitor the waters. Further, we look forward to working with our partners at the Michigan BASS Federation, and appreciate their willingness to assist us in collecting information necessary to better understand and manage this virus.”
There are few outward signs that a fish has the virus. The virus has been found in many lakes where there have not been reports of disease or mortalities of fish. Affected fish usually appear normal, although they may be lethargic, swim slowly and are less responsive to activity around them.
Dying fish often are seen near the surface and have difficulty remaining upright. Upon internal examination, such fish usually will have bloated swim bladders, which accounts for the cause of swimming problems. Red sores or other lesions occasionally may be seen on the skin of the fish, but these are secondary in nature and not part of the virus infection.
The DNR concurs with recommendations from the LMBV Workshop III, and reminds anglers and boaters to take the following steps to help prevent the spread of the virus:
· Clean boats, trailers, other equipment thoroughly between fishing trips to keep from transporting LMBV, as well as other undesirable pathogens and organisms, from one water body to another.
· Do not move fish or fish parts from one body of water to another, and do not release live bait into any water body.
· Handle bass as gently as possible if you intend to release them.
· Stage tournaments during cooler weather, so fish caught will not be so stressed.
· Report dead or dying fish to state wildlife agencies.
· Volunteer to help agencies collect bass for LMBV monitoring.
· Educate other anglers about LMBV.
