Welcome to the Granbury Bass Club

We are a proud organization and want to share some of our history.


1984 - 2003


The Granbury Bass Club formed in 1984. The meeting place was held at various locations: Toleldo Tackle (now The Patio Shop), Granbury Lanes, Members Homes, Old Granbury Auto Ranch, Pizza Inn, Bodacious Bar B Q, and presently Chop N Block Bar B Que.

Our Goals: To encourage sportsmanship, fellowship and provide bass fishing techniques through lectures & materials. To support/sponsor youth and community programs.

The membership enrollment has grown to 103 members in the late 80's, has been reduced to 6 members in the early 90's. Membership has currently stabilized in the 25 30 range.

Some of the major achievements included: sponsored Kid Fish, support; Chamber of Commerce in the Carp Tournaments, hosted; Open Tournaments; benefiting the American Cancer Society in our local areas.

Affiliations: Texas Association of Bass Clubs, Federation of B.A.S.S., and presently Honey Hole

Ways & Means: Three (3) Open Tournaments were initiated: Fall, Snowbird Classic, and Spring. The proceeds are used to run the Club's business.

Longest distance: Lakes fished from Granbury, TX have been Lake Fairfield (165mi) and Lake Cooper (135mi).
