Club News:

If you want to be a member of the Texas Assn. of Bass Clubs (TABC) or if you plan to fish in the TABC Top 8 Tournament in September, you need to pay your annual TABC dues of $20. You cannot join TABC after April 15th when dues are due in order to participate in the annual TABC Top 8 State Tournament.

The annual garage sale fund raiser was a success and $708.00 was earned last Saturday. Some of the more valuable items will be sold on Craigslist/Ebay by Brian to raise some additional funds for the club.  Mitch Shelton, Harold Barnett, John Bobo, Dave Ehrenfeld, Tom White, and Don Haluzan all helped Brian Kitchen with the garage sale and deserve a big THANK YOU for their time and effort.

There are several more events coming up in April that will require some volunteers. Sign-up sheets will be passed around at the upcoming meeting for at least two events, one of which is a fund raiser for the club.

Fishing Report:

The weather is great, the lakes are full and the fish are biting pretty good. Don’t miss an opportunity to go fishing this coming weekend.  I hope to see you at Thursday’s meeting.  Check out Steve Moore’s big bass from the February tournament below.
