The Canyon Lake Bassmasters Club kicked off its 2023 season with a tournament on Saturday, January 7. Twenty-five anglers in 13 boats competed in the club tournament.

With a total fish weight of 15.59 lbs., Mark White and Hank Dunbar took first place. “Mark has honed his skills and is the guy to beat,” angler Casey Engel said.

Kevin Hugo and Keneti Faagata Faagata reeled in second place with a total fish weight of 13.38 lbs. Both are solid anglers and almost always on the podium. Seasoned anglers Mauro Megalo and Steve Baker rounded out third place with 11.85 lbs. of fish.

All fish were released back into the lake after being weighed.

Canyon Lake residents who enjoy fishing and want to improve their skills in a friendly, competitive environment are invited to join the Bassmasters Club. For more information, contact Chuck Moreno at 951-837-5941.
