Big Bass Association of NJ was started in 2003 by two friends, Rich Donnelly and Vinnie Pier. They wanted to share the sport of bass fishing in NJ in a fun, but competitive way. We are a buddy club, but you can fish alone if you wish. We hold 10 tournaments a year, 8 point tournaments plus an open and a club classic at the end of the season. We fish lakes and reservoirs in North and Central New Jersey. We carry between 40-50 members per year and average 15 boats per tournament. If you are interested in joining or have any questions, please feel free to contact us.

Clarence Hollenbeck

~ Clarence Hollenbeck ~

Big Bass Association recently lost one of it's members. Clarence Hollenbeck passed away Friday February 24 at the age of 82. Clarence was very active in the club and fished almost every tournament until health issues sidelined him just a few years ago. He placed in many tournaments with his partner Albie. He won AOY in 2006, 2008 & 2010. He also won the 6 lb pool in 2010. Our prayers go out to his wife and family. Rest in peace Clarence.

From the Daily Record:
Clarence "Sonny" Charles Hollenbeck, 82, of Chester, NJ passed away on February 24, 2017 at his home. Sonny was born on November 5, 1934 in Rockaway, NJ and has lived his entire life in Chester. He retired in 1992 as a Supervisor from the Morris County Road Department after 30 years. He loved fishing, making lures, hunting, bowling, metal detecting, and enjoying the outdoors. Sonny served in the U.S. Air Force from 1953-1961.
