Tournament Images

Just five days after returning from Lake Amistad seven teams of the Mr. and Mrs. Bass club of Austin were at Lake Buchanan competing in the May club tournament.  The lakes had some things in common, beautiful water and surroundings.  What Buchanan did not have in common with Amistad was 14” fish.  Catching a fish of any size was quite difficult but finding one over 13 ¾” was amazing!

As is usual one team managed to throw a bait the fish seemed to want.  Cliff and Brenda Davis had a five fish limit weighing in 8.81 pounds.  Brenda had a 3.01 which was women’s big bass of the tournament.

Coming in second was Rosemarie and Pete with 3.39 pounds and Pete had men’s big bass with a 2.24 pounder.  Jesse Sanchez had to fish solo because Sugein was ill and stayed home.  Jesse weighed in 2.92 pounds which took third place.  The Brown’s, Connell’s, Tyree’s and Gold’s rounded out the field.  The only time anyone saw the Gold’s they were a “swish” mark on the lake in their new Bullet being pushed by a 300 horsepower motor.  She’s a beautiful boat and very fast too!  Congratulations Jerry and Pat on your new baby.

It wasn’t a good day for catching bass but it was a nice day on the lake and the wildflowers made the trip more than worthwhile.  Bluebonnets, Indian Paintbrushes, Brown eyed Susan’s and Firewheels carpeted the roadsides and fields.  If the bass in the lake could have seen the scenery surrounding them they would have been jumping into our boats for a glimpse of the beauty.

After the tournament we all went to Storm’s restaurant in Burnet for food and talk.  The social time spent after the tournament is almost as much fun as the fishing.
