2023 Club Officers
In 1973 approximately 10 men gathered at Dick Lesters’ Radiator Shop to form Bass-Lafayette. Larry Kelly was elected the first president with Don Bryant elected as secretary. The club took a year off in 1974, but in 1975 the club regrouped and has been going strong ever since.
Current club membership is about 30, ranging in age from mid-twenties to 90.
Two or three of the original members are still on the roster. While the main goal of Bass-Lafayette is to fish tournaments, we do also participate in other activities, such as, Fishing Has No boundaries and Casting For Kids.
Bass-Lafayette currently fishes 12-14 tournaments each year in addition to a two day club Classic. While the tournaments are normally close to Lafayette, the club has traveled throughout Indiana, Kentucky, Tennessee, Illinois, and Michigan.
Those who have been members of Bass-Lafayette will attest to the sportsmanship of the club as well as to the friendships that have developed over the past 45 years.
