August 2017 Meeting and Tournament:

Our August meeting will be on Thursday, August 17, 2017 at 7:00pm at Pok-e-Jo’s Smokehouse on Parmer Lane. Our August tournament will be on Saturday, August 19, 2017. Come early and enjoy some great BBQ and fellowship.

Club News:

Next month, on Saturday, September 23rd, the club will be taking around 15 wounded warriors fishing on Lake Travis. More detailed information will be shared with everyone at the upcoming meeting. Please plan to support this event because we will need riggers and non-riggers to help make this event enjoyable for everyone . It will be held at Jones Brothers Park in Jonestown.

The Couples Club will resume fishing in early September.

Fishing Reports:

Fishing has been fairly slow lately, but getting off the water by 11:00am during the Retiree Club tournament made the time on the water bearable. Bring your fishing reports to the upcoming club meeting and plan to get up early Saturday morning for the tournament.
