Catch of the Month
Striped Bass — August 17, 2014
This 34.8-pound, 42.5-inch beauty took Michael Patitucci's bait and leapt onto the list of Top 50 striped bass caught in Texas, where it ranks number 33. Caught at Lake Austin, the striper also earned a Big Fish Award for Patitucci and helped put him on the list of Elite Freshwater Anglers. Congratulations, Michael!
One interesting photo will be selected by our staff and showcased on the Angler Recognition Program website each month. Send us a good photograph of the fish and the angler and your catch may be selected!
