FAN returns to Llano County Park on Lake Buchanan for event #3 March 2, 2019
With a bit of weather and lake management issues we had to pivot from LBJ and make a move up the chain of Highland Lakes to Lake Buchanan â€œWe are excited to see some quality bass brought to the scales again stated Justin Rieger. FAN Director of Technology ” Last spring Buchanan delivered a 27.99 record limit including the Kistler Big Bass at 9.80 large mouth with the top 4 teams bringing in a 20 plus pound bag of bass. This 22,000 surface acre lake is prime to produce some great fishing for the student anglers again this spring. Justin said.
Be sure to watch our video of Llano County Park from 2016 to get a first-hand view of the park and what to expect tournament morning HERE. And remember to get there early and launch your boat we anticipate a long line on the two lane ramp.
And thanks to our friends at LBCC for everything they do to keep Lake Buchanan a top quality fishery.
