Tournament Results:

Since we voted to cancel the January 19th tournament due to high winds, there are no tournament results.

Tournament Standings for 2019: (coming next month).

February 2019 Meeting and Tournament:

Our February meeting will be on Wednesday, February 13, 2019 at 7:00pm at Pok-e-Jo’s Smokehouse on Parmer Lane. Our February tournament will be on Saturday, February 16, 2019. Come enjoy the fellowship and some great BBQ.

Club News:

During our January club meeting, a motion was made to change the club constitution to include the two (2) lake rule unless there were extenuating circumstances justifying ignoring the two lake rule. The two lake rule simply means the club will not fish a lake more than twice during the calendar year. The rule was initially put in place to increase the number of lakes the club fished during the calendar year. If this motion passes, it will become a tournament rule rather than a guideline whenever the issue arises during a club meeting. Section IV.7 of the club bylaws dealing with club tournaments, states “Lake selection, starting time of tournament, and the time and place of the weigh-in will be decided at the monthly meeting. No pre-fishing is allowed during the 8 hours preceding the official starting time of a club tournament.” If this motion passes, I suggest adding the following to section IV.7 of the club bylaws: “The club will not fish any lake more than twice during a calendar year unless there are extenuating circumstances justifying doing so.” We will vote on this motion during the upcoming meeting.

During the January meeting, we also decided to have a Spring travel tournament this year and Choke Canyon was suggested. Be prepared to pick a lake and a month for our spring travel tournament at the upcoming meeting. I have contacted Choke Canyon Lodge and tentatively reserved 10 rooms for March 14th and 15th if we decide to go in March. There are also rooms available if we decide to go to Choke Canyon Reservoir in April.

Don’t forget the raffle for the guided fishing trip for two with Mike Hastings valued at $295.00. Money raised from this raffle will help support the missionary activities of Bob and Sherry Smith by helping pay for lunches for children attending school in Kenya. Raffle tickets will cost $20 each.

If you missed the January meeting and haven’t paid your annual dues, please bring your payment to the upcoming meeting so I can send everyone an updated club roster.

Fishing Reports:

Fishing has been slow recently. The Retiree Club fished Lake Bastrop on February 6th and the winning team, Don Haluzan and Gary Burnham, caught 10 fish weighing over 22 pounds. Many club members caught fish using the Ned rig that day. Plan to share your fishing reports with everyone at the upcoming club meeting. I will see you at the meeting Wednesday evening.
