Fishing Report:

I fished Lake Buchanan yesterday and it fished a lot like Lake Travis. The bite was slow and it was hard to catch fish bigger than 14 inches. Lady Bird Lake was enjoyable to fish during the Retiree Club tournament, but unless you traveled up to the area around the Lamar Boulevard bridge where there is a lot of grass, it was hard to get a bite. The guys that fished Lake Bastrop caught more fish. See you all at the club meeting.
