September 2017 Meeting and Tournament:

Our September meeting will be on Thursday, September 14, 2017 at 7:00pm at Pok-e-Jo’s Smokehouse on Parmer Lane. Our September tournament will be on Saturday, September 16, 2017. Come early and enjoy some great BBQ and fellowship.

Club News:

On Saturday, September 23rd, the club will be taking around 15 wounded warriors fishing on Lake Travis. Art Cruser will have a signup sheet for riggers and non-riggers for this event. Riggers are needed to ensure the veterans can go fishing from a boat. Non-riggers are needed to help with food preparation at lunch time and possibly with the fishing activity.

This year is flying by and it is time to plan a travel tournament. Bring your suggestions to the upcoming meeting and we can make a decision regarding when and where we would like to have a travel tournament.

Fishing Reports:

Fishing has been slow lately. The ACBC Couples Club fished Decker Lake on September 9th and seven teams participated. Only two teams caught a limit of 5 fish and the winning team was Nita and Jim Pollard. They caught 4 fish weighing 9.2 pounds. Bring your fishing reports to the upcoming club meeting and plan to get up early Saturday morning for the next tournament.
