2013 Club Tournament Results
We have qualified six anglers for the 2013 IBN State Qualifier Tournament at Clinton Lake on June 8th & 9th, 2013. Qualifying position is based on each angler's 2012 AOY points finish.
Representing CIB for 2013 will be:
Brian Marsinko
Mike Griffin
Brent Swartz
Austin Moore
Matt Birmingham
Tom Renski

Alternate: Gene Walkling
This year was a tough year for CIB in the State Qualifier. We finished in 21st place, and didn't have an angler finish in the top 12 to make the 2014 Northern Divisional team. The focus turns to improving the rest of 2013, and making sure we bounce back at the 2014 State Qualifier at Carlyle Lake!

2013 IBN State Qualifier Tournament
2013 B.A.S.S. Northern Divisional Tournament
We have qualified two anglers, Brian Tutko and Mike Griffin, to fish as part of the team representing the State of Illinois at Lake Francis Case in Chamberlain, SD August 28-30th, 2013. Qualification was based upon their outstanding individual finishes within the top twelve places of the 2012 Illinois State Qualifier tournament. Their efforts greatly contributed to CIB finishing the 2012 State Qualifier in 2nd place! Brian and Mike left several days early to travel to South Dakota to learn the lay of the lake and gain some valuable experience in their quest to be the top finisher on the Illinois team and earn a spot to fish in the B.A.S.S. National Championship. The fish proved difficult to track down, as they were traveling in schools and not relating to structure, but when a school was found action greatly picked up. After Day 1, Mike was in a respectable 17th place, bringing in three fish for a 4lb 9oz bag. Unfortunately, Brian couldn't come across any keeper sized fish and finished Day 1 tied for 67th place. The heat was building and the anglers were not only having to battle the fish, but 100+ degree weather as well. Day 2 turned out to be a great comeback day for Brian, as he jumped from 67th place and zero fish to a four fish bag and 49th place with 3lbs 12oz. Mike struggled and didn't manage any keeper sized fish on day two, dropping from 17th place to 43rd. The third and final day had Brian beating the heat and bringing in two fish for 2 lbs 10oz and an overall 47th place finish. Mike didn't end up with any keepers on Day 3, and finished the event in 66th place. Overall it was a great experience for these two anglers, and they can't wait to represent CIB and the State of Illinois in future Northern Divisionals.
