Jude Donahue caught a bass weighing nearly five pounds on Saturday morning while fishing near the main causeway with her buddy Brandon. “It took off three times,” Jude said. “It was a great fish and fight.” She used a plastic worm for bait. The fish was released back into the lake.
Jude is a member of the Canyon Lake Bassmasters Club and participates in its monthly tournaments and helps coordinate its annual Kids Fishing Derby. She is the recipient of the club’s 2016 Sportsman of the Year award.
Jude invites other residents to join the club who like to fish and want to improve their skills in a low stress, friendly competitive environment.
The Bassmasters Club meets on the first Wednesday of the month at 7 p.m. in the Magnolia Room at the country club. Monthly tournaments are held on the first Saturday of each month.
