Thanks to all who showed up to fish the fifth tournament of the Mr and Mrs Bass Club of Austin’s 2012 season.  We had 11 couples compete on the gator infested waters of Choke Canyon.  Every team managed to catch a few keeper bass on this hot May day.

Brent Parish takes the men’s big bass honors with a 3.90 pounder.

Women’s big bass goes to Britney Hagaman with an awesome 6.17 pound largemouth.  This is also Britney’s new personal best bass.  I bet she can’t wait to go back to choke canyon!  Congrats Britney!!

Our photographer has had some technical difficulties.  Big thanks to our secretary Marilyn Connell for helping out and taking some additional photos.  Next tournament will be held on our own highland lake, Lake Buchanan.  The water is low there but the fishing is pretty good.  See yall there June 2nd!

Brenda and Cliff Davis placed second with another specular limit weighing 20.21 pounds which was anchored by the biggest bass weighed in that day, a 9.63 pounder caught by Cliff.  Third place went to the consistent team of Sugein and Jesse Sanchez with a limit weighing 15.20 pounds.  It was a good day on the water for all teams.  Next month the club sets its sights on Stillhouse Hollow which holds the opportunity for more over 20 pound sacks to be brought to the scales.

Eleven MMBC teams hit the waters of Choke Canyon early saturday morning with hopes of hooking into one on the many Share A Lunker bass who call Choke Canyon their home.  The morning started off cold and crisp with air temperatures in the thirties and water temps in the low fifties.  The lake is still several feet low and the hydrilla is still struggling to grow in the frigid waters.  Despite the cold start, the weather quickly began to cooperate with soft winds and sixty degree air temps by weigh in which was held at 3:30 at the south shore unit.  Water temps were in the upper fifties by tournament end.

Coming out on top for the second tournament in a row, as well as only being their second tournament since joining MMBC, was the team of Sugein and Jessie Sanchez.  The team brought 5 fish to the scales weighing 13.75 pounds.   Jessie also took men’s big bass of the tournament with a nice 4.81 pounder, almost knocking Robert Brown’s  5.37 pound Lake Travis Bass out of contention for men’s big bass of the year.  The Sanchez’s reported catching their bass on rattle trap type baits.  The only other limit of bass brought to the scales on this day was the second place team of Leslie Killough and Brent Parish. Their limit weighed 8.80 pounds and was caught on tx rigged lizards and weightless senkos.  Rounding out the top three was the Choke Canyon power house team of Marilyn and Joe Connell.  They brought in three bass weighing 8.34 pounds with Joe weighing in a beautiful 4.69 bucket mouth.  They reported primarily catching their fish on tx rigged worms.  Joining us again after missing a few tournaments was Lisa White and Larry Nichols.  Lisa managed to boat a nice 2.98 pound bass which took the woman’s big bass of the tournament prize along with now being the current 2010 Woman’s big bass leader.  Great job to everyone who hit the water on a pretty tough fishing day.  We concluded our day in typical MMBC fashion with a nice big meal at the Staghorn restaurant located in the glorious town of Three Rivers Texas.

We hope to see everyone Tuesday March 2nd at Fudruckers for our monthly meeting.  Please don’t forget to bring any stuffed animals you may have for our on going charity contribution to Blue Santa.

On Martch 27th the Mr and Mrs Bass Club of Austin will be heading to Lake LBJ for our third tournament of the year.  With the spawn in full swing who knows what record breaking weights will be brought to the scales!!  Hope to see yall there.  Tight Lines…
