Tournament Results:

We have had two tournaments since the last newsletter in September. Our September tournament was held on Lake LBJ and 11 teams participated.  Fishing was tough for many teams.  Art Cruser and Carlton Yarbrough won the tournament with 8 fish weighing 19.96 pounds.  Vince Martin and Steve Martinez came in second place with 10 fish weighing 18.64 pounds.  Mitch Shelton and Gary Burnham took third place with 7 fish weighing 16.32 pounds.  Carlton Yarbrough caught the biggest 4 fish stringer weighing 11.14 pounds.

Our October tournament was held on Fayette County Reservoir and 13 teams participated. Fishing was somewhat slow because only 9 members caught a limit of fish.  Mike Wiles and Ken Haulotte won the tournament with 10 fish weighing 28.66 pounds.  Don Haluzan and Harold Barnett came in second place with 8 fish weighing 24.28 pounds.  Third place went to Craig Mooney and Jon Cooper who brought in 6 fish weighing 23.82 pounds.  Craig Mooney caught the biggest bass of the tournament (21.5” or 5.38 pounds) and he also had the biggest 5 fish stringer which weighed 20.69 pounds.

November 2014 Meeting and Tournaments:

Our November club meeting will be on Thursday, November 13, 2014 at 7:00pm at Pok-e-Jo’s Smokehouse, 2121 Parmer Lane, Austin, Tx. The purpose of this meeting is to select a local lake for those members not participating in the travel tournament to Lake Fork.  The local tournament will be on a local lake which the club has not previously fished this year and it will be held on Saturday, November 15th, the same day as the travel tournament.

Club News:

We are nearing the end of 2014 and our December meeting will be held on December 4th. We will be electing next year’s officers/directors at that meeting.  The club will hold our annual banquet on January 24, 2015 at the Twin Oaks Ranch in Buda, Texas.  Mark your calendars so you won’t miss this great event.

Fishing Report:

Six teams will miss the upcoming meeting because they will be fishing Lake Fork. If you are planning to fish the local club tournament, bring your fishing reports to the meeting and share them.  I’ll see you at the December club meeting.
