Officers Present: Mitch Hayes, District 1 Director; Mike Goins, District 2 Director; Craig Stanley, District 3 Director. Jeff Boone, District 4 Director and DeWayne Wilda, IBF Vice President.

Mitch Hayes called the meeting to order at 9:05 am.

Mike Goins read the minutes from the March 9, 2013 meeting. Summit City made motion to accept and Wawasee Hawg Hunters seconded.

DeWayne Wilda gave financial report. $700 in checking account.  Only anticipated expenses that need to be paid is Directors travel expenses for zone and state meeting. He also said we normally keep 10 % from Tournament of Champions but did not do this year.  The 50/50 raffle and the proceeds from TOC are the only sources of income so we should keep 10% in the future. Mid Indiana Anglers made motion to accept. Second by C-City Bass Masters.

M Hayes made motion that each club donate $20 for Riley Foundation and due by March Zone meeting. Passed unanimously.

M Goins reminded everyone Scholarship applications and Club of the Year presentations due by December State meeting. $300 scholarship awarded for each zone.

C Stanley discussed boat raffle program. Tickets $3.00 this year. Clubs need to sell 150 for Top 8 entry fee discount.  More tickets available if needed.

M Hayes discussed youth program. It was self-sufficient.  Averaged about 40 kids per tournament. Paul Hollabaugh suggested we recognize Brad Zellers for his good work with the youth program.

M Goins reported on the Northern Divisional.  Hosted by Ohio and held on the Ohio River out of Wheeling West Virginia. Indiana came frombehind to win.  Dave Cermak of Hebron, IN was the overall winner with 21.5 pounds and will advance to the Nationals as a boater. Phil Reel of Kokomo, IN was 3rd overall with 19.15 pounds and will fish the nationals as a non-boater. DeWayne Wilda said Cermak advised him he found something in practice that panned out. He was actually fishing as a non-boater but the boater let him fish as the boater the last day since he was high in the standings.

M Hays requested any proposals for 2014 Top 8’s. Angola Bass Masters presented proposal to host the East Top 8 on Lake James May 3 and $. That was the only proposal so they will host the East Top 8.

There was no proposals for the West Top 8.  Mitch Hayes secured May 3 and 4 date at Wawasee so the Zone Directors will conduct the West Top 8. Syracuse ramp to be used. Goins and J Boone to make necessary arrangements. It will be made up of District 1 and 2 and some clubs from District 3.

To keep the two Top 8’s relatively even it was asked that 4 clubs from District 4 volunteer to fish in the West Top 8 at Wawasee.  Grant County Bass Anglers, Indiana Bass Club, Northern Bass Anglers and Wawasee Hawg Hunters all volunteered and will participate in the West Top 8.

M Hayes advised State Finals tentatively scheduled the 4th weekend of July at Patoka.

M Hayes discussed the IBF Website. Accepting 2014 schedules. Adams County Bass Masters made motion requiring all clubs put their schedules on the website and if not done by April the could not participate. This was the result of a specific situation where two clubs had tournaments scheduled but one was not listed on the website and a third club had anglers show up to prefish for the next week. It was important that the clubs put their schedules on the website to not only help other clubs but to prevent multiple clubs taking up all the parking and leaving nothing for general public. We do not want a permit system for all lakes. M Hayes also pointed out that it may not be possible to keep clubs from participating because of IBF Top 8 rules. It was stressed to use offsite parking whenever possible. The motion died for lack of a second but it was decided that the Zone Directors would monitor the web site and keep clubs advised of who was not on the website.

The terms of two Zone Directors were up – District 1 and 2. Mitch Hayes advised he would not seek reelection in District 1. He asked for nominations for District 1 but there was none. The only nomination for District 2 was Mike Goins. He accepted and with continue as District 2 Director.

Mike Goins acknowledged the top 3 teams of the Tournament of Champions and awarded their plaques. Mike Klavinski and Robert Handshoe of the Angola Bass Masters won. Second was Tony Hubbard and Brian Hooser of the Angola Hawg Hunters. Third were Phil and Lee Duracz of the Fish Lake Bass Masters. The 4 pound 1 ounce big bass was caught by Chuck Thompson and Diana Bauer of the St Joe Valley Bass Masters.

Mitch Hayes advised that all Zone 1 clubs were eligible for Top 8 except Lafayette Bass.

Mike Goins reported that Michigan was discussing raising their non-resident fishing license to $75. Paul Hollabaugh advised that the governor had signed the bill and it was official.

Mitch Hayes discussed 2013 State Finals. Six anglers from Zone 1 made the State Team. Brian Whitaker won it.

M Hayes announced dates for 2014 Zone Meetings

  • January 11, 2013
  • March 8, 2014
  • May 2, 2014  – Separate meetings at each Top 8

Took hand vote. 21 clubs present, 17 in favor and 1 opposed. Directors will present that information to the board.
