About Us last updated 5/24/2022 5:36 AM by Justin

West Michigan Bass started in 2006 as pickup league on monday nights. Just a group of buddies enjoying some friendly competition on a Monday night. What better way to start the week, right?

It didn't take long and the club grew in popularity. By 2008 the club adopted the name "Case of the Monday's" - a phrase made popular in the movie 'Office Space'. COTM, as it was commonly referred to, had a website, published schedules, a classic and over 50 members. During these years we experimented with formats, classic setups and various rules and regulations to settle on the format that is currently in use.

In 2010 West Michigan Bass was presented with an opportunity to grow and the Southern division was born. At that time WMB doubled the number of tournaments we were hosting to 24 a year and increased membership by approximately 40%. WMB operated successfully at that this level with steady member growth year over year until the fall of 2013 when we were presented with a new opportunity for growth.

Beginning in 2014 WMB will almost double the number of tournaments we are hosting yet again. Alongside the successful Case of the Mondays weeknight series will be the new weekend series called the Hair of the Dog series. All of the 2014 tournaments will culminate with a season ending “Classic” tournament and a significant payout to the winners.

West Michigan Bass hosts 100% payback, family friendly bass fishing tournaments. We welcome anyone to fish with us on any of the divisions. We are also ideal for parent/child teams as younger anglers are not required to pay membership. As always, we strive to promote a positive and entertaining atmosphere at every tournament. To us fishing is not only a passion, but a way to compete as well as a means to escape work and the daily grind and - most importantly - a way to have fun with good friends.
