Three members of the Four Flags Bass Club in Niles have qualified for the Michigan State B.A.S.S. team that will compete in a regional event yet to be announced.
The trio qualified based on their finish in a state event held at Burt and Mullet lakes recently.
Dan Posey of Niles made it for the sixth time by finishing second as a non-boater with 15.02 pounds while Scott Solomon of Edwardsburg finished seventh with 10.13 pounds as a non-boater, his first state team qualification.
Jeff Bostic of Vandalia, Mich. made the team for the third time by finishing 11th as a boater with 21.51 pounds.
Jake and Stephanie Lisenko (South Bend) caught a limit totaling 13.13 pounds to win the last regular season Casting Couples event last weekend on Paw Paw Lake.
There were 18 boats in the event and only two limits weighed in. In addition, 10 smallmouth were brought to the scales.
The Lisenko's used TroKar wacky worm hooks topped with baby bass colored Senkos in 8 - 12 foot of water on the break to win $280.
