Tyler State Park Presidents Retreat

Last Wednesday and Thursday Russell (Pres of FWFF) and I took off to Lake Tyler State Park for some well deserved R&R. We got there early Wednesday morning and put my kick-boats in to try our hand at a  little fishing. "Little" being the key word. Shortly after launching the wind picked up and was gusting between 30 and 35 mph. I caught the only fish before we decided to play it safe and return to shore.

We decided to run up the road and give the Freshwater Fishery Center in Athens a try. That was an interesting adventure also. The bass were on their beds right up next to the shore and would not bite under any circumstances.

Here's a 10 - 12#  female and her mate.

When they ran us out at 4:30 it was time to head to the Bean & Burger for some lunch/dinner.

When we got up Thursday the wind had died down some and we fished for a few hours catching a few small bass and sunnies. Then it was time for lunch at Bodacious BBQ and to head home.

It was a good time and I look forward to the next one.
