August Meeting and Tournament:

Our August meeting will be this Thursday, August 15, 2013 at 7:00pm on the 3rd Floor of the Education Building.  Our August  tournament will be on Saturday, August 17, 2013.  The club is providing refreshments at this month’s meeting.

Club News:

The Round Rock Children’s Home Fishing event on Lake Georgetown will be held on September 7th, which is 3 weekends after our August club tournament.  There are only 5 riggers currently signed up to participate in this wonderful event.  We really need at least 10 riggers to support this event in order to give more kids the opportunity to go fishing.

Don’t forget about our Fall garage sale!  Are you saving up your usable items to help raise money for the club?

Fishing Report:

Daytime temperatures are higher this month than in July so my recent fishing trips to Lake Austin and Lake Travis were between the hours of 8:00pm and 9:00am.  I caught fish during both trips, but the real reason for going fishing at night is comfort.  You beat the heat, you avoid the boat traffic, and you get to enjoy fishing and the solitude of the night.  Before July ended, Gary Burnham and I fished Fayette County Lake starting around 10:00pm.  It was breezy and for several hours we fished without any success.  We decided to check out the dam because it would protect us from the wind and part of it was illuminated by the power plant lighting.  For the rest of the night we caught fish on Texas rigged plastics and boated a total of 15 fish.  One of us caught 7 and the other caught eight.  Don’t miss out on an opportunity to enjoy the night sky, the solitude, and the comfort of night fishing.  I look forward to seeing you at the upcoming meeting.
