GRANITE SHOALS — A beautiful sunny day did not equal a great day on Lake LBJ for the high school fishing club in Marble Falls.

Twenty-two anglers participated in the Jan. 24 tournament, but fewer than half caught a fish.

Club sponsor Craig Orton had a simple explanation.

The recent cold weather played a major role in the fish not wanting to cooperate,” he said. “Many of the anglers were disappointed about how the day went, but they were still smiling. It is like the bumper sticker says, ‘A bad day fishing is better than a good day at work.’”
