Tournament Results:

Since we did not have an April club meeting due to the travel tournament to Lake Amistad, I’ll share the results of the last two tournaments.  Our March tournament was held on Decker Lake and 15 teams participated.  The bite was slow for most participants because only 8 members caught a limit of five fish.  Vince Martin and Al Lykins won the tournament with 10 fish weighing 37.70 pounds.  Gib Hoffman and Clancy Wiseman came in second place with 10 fish weighing 29.96 pounds.  Third place went to Mike Wiles and Buddy Boudloche who weighed in six fish totaling 19.71 pounds.  Vince Martin caught the biggest bass of the tournament (23” or 6.50#) and he also had the biggest stringer weighing 22.75 pounds.

Our annual travel tournament was held in April at Amistad Reservoir.  Tournament day was windy and made boat handling a real challenge.  Only 7 of the 21 participants caught a limit of fish.  Ron Roberts and Tom Clark won the tournament with 9 fish weighing 20.04 pounds.  Darryl Smith and Roger Growden came in second place with 8 fish weighing 17.71 pounds.  Third place went to Dennis Worley and Carlton Yarbrough who weighed in nine fish totaling 17.53 pounds.  Tom McVan caught the biggest 5 fish stringer weighing 12.90 pounds.

2013 Standings after 4 tournaments:

Vince Martin- 60.28 pounds                                        Mitch Shelton- 40.67 pounds

Mike Wiles- 56.05 pounds                                            Clancy Wiseman- 38.98 pounds

Brooks Griffith- 47.56 pounds                                     Roger Growden- 37.62 pounds

Art Cruser- 44.35 pounds                                              Craig Mooney- 37.54 pounds

Jim Pollard- 41.74 pounds                                             Tom McVan- 37.06 pounds

Art Cruser and Dennis Worley tied for Big Bass of the First Quarter.  Art caught his 7.0# bass during the February tournament at Fayette County Reservoir and Dennis caught his 7.0# bass while fishing at Decker Lake on February 28, 2013.

May Meeting and Tournament:

Our May meeting will be this Thursday, May 16, 2013 at 7:00pm.  Our May tournament will be on Saturday, May 18, 2013.  This month’s club meeting will be on the 3rd floor of the Education Bldg. which is located on the opposite side of the gym from the room where we normally hold our meeting.

Club News:

We are only four or five months away from the time of the year that we hold the annual garage sale.  If you have anything that might sell at the garage sale, don’t throw it out.  In a few more months we will gather all your valuable “stuff” together and have a fun day raising some money for the club treasury.


Fishing Report:

I don’t have any good fishing reports to share with you this month.  I do know that last year in May we fished Decker Lake and had a great tournament.  The winning team caught 26.83 pounds.  So far this year, Decker Lake produced the most weight for the winning team in March when Vince Martin and Al Lykins weighed in 37.70 pounds.  The frog bite should be on!  Bring your fishing report to the meeting and I hope to see you there.
