Club News:

The Amputee Fishing Event at Lake Bastrop was supported by 16 club members who brought 10 boats to take amputees and some family members fishing.  The fish were biting and everyone reported catching some fish in spite of the windy conditions.  Lunch afterwards was great and Frieda Borth presented ACBC a plaque commemorating 9 years of support to the Round Rock Amputee Support Group. 

The C.A.S.T. for Kids event that will be held on Lake Bastrop on May 12th will be supported by 6 riggers and several non- riggers.  It is not too late to participate if you are available.

This is Mike Wiles’ big 9.75lb Falcon bass.
