July 2015 Meeting and Tournament:

Our July meeting will be on Thursday, July 16, 2015 at 7:00pm at Pok-e-Jo’s Smokehouse, 2121 Parmer Lane, Austin, Tx.  Our July tournament will be on Saturday, July 18, 2015.  Come early and enjoy some BBQ.  We will meet at Pok-e-Jo’s for the remainder of this year, except for August when we will meet again at Millwood Baptist Church.

Club News:

Summer is here and it’s getting hotter every day, but we have a new lake to fish.  It is called Lake Buchanan!

The TABC Top 8 State Tournament will be held on Falcon Reservoir on September 26th and 27th, 2015.  There will be a planning meeting for the participants prior to this month’s club meeting starting at 6:30pm.

Fishing Report:

I know if you want to catch some nice fish, go to Lake Bastrop.  The club had a great tournament there last month and the Retiree Club had a great tournament there last Friday.  The winning team was Steve Martinez and his grandson, Isaac, and they weighed in 10 fish weighing 30.85 pounds.  Several members have fished Lake Travis or Lake LBJ and the catching was tough.  Bring your fishing reports to the upcoming meeting and think about going night fishing.  No boat traffic, no jet skis, and no hot sun makes night fishing more enjoyable at this time of the year.  See you all at the club meeting.
