Club News:

I don’t have much news, but I will remind everyone of two things. First, the Couples Club will have their first tournament of the year in March. Second, bring any fishing gear you want to sell or swap to the club meeting this month. Brian Kitchen will also be auctioning some of Al Lykins rods/reels to raise some money for the club.

Fishing Report:

The Retiree Club fished Lake Bastrop and nine teams participated. The weather was nice for February but the bite was slow early in the day. Ron Baker and Tom Kelm won the tournament with 10 fish weighing 29.02 pounds. Thirteen members weighed in a limit of 5 fish. Ron Baker had the biggest 5 fish stringer that weighed 16.70 pounds. Check out one of his fish below.

Bring your fishing reports to share with everyone at the upcoming meeting. I hope to see all of you Thursday evening.
