January 2017 Meeting and Tournament:

Our January meeting will be on Thursday, January 19, 2017 at 7:00pm at Pok-e-Jo’s Smokehouse on Parmer Lane. Our January tournament will be on Saturday, January 21, 2017.  Come early and enjoy some great BBQ and fellowship.

Club News:

Get your fishing year started off right and don’t miss the January meeting or tournament. Next Saturday’s weather should be really nice for January.  Annual dues and other fees are due this month and I will provide the membership form so you can print a copy and bring it, along with your check or cash to the upcoming meeting.

The annual awards banquet is planned for February 11, 2017 at the Twin Oaks Ranch in Buda, Texas. This year the menu will be fajitas that will be provided by Pok-e-Jo’s Smokehouse and the cost will be $14.00 per member and includes your spouse or a guest.  The evening meal will be served around 6:00pm.  Because our annual banquet will occur before our February meeting, we will be attempting to get a head count at the January club meeting for the purpose of ordering the food.

Fishing Report:

The Retiree Club started off the new year by fishing Decker Lake and eleven teams participated. The weather was nice but the bite was slow for Decker Lake although some quality fish were caught.  Steve Martinez and Gary Burnham won the tournament with 8 fish weighing 20.85 pounds.  The biggest stringer was 4 fish weighing 15.44 pounds.  This is why we love to fish Decker Lake.  Bring your fishing reports to share with everyone at the upcoming meeting. I hope to see all of you Thursday evening.
