Lake Amistad, on the border of Texas and Mexico, gained some bass fishing fame several years ago when major tournaments first shared its big bass bounty with the rest of the fishing community.

Even though the economic bust of the last four years has destroyed many businesses, the money from folks in the oil industry has kept Byron Velvick’s Amistad Lake Resort, in Del Rio, Texas, running.

“It’s a small fishing resort,” said Velvick. “Fortunately, there is still oil money down there so we get enough business to keep open. It’s a great fishery. People should come down if they can and experience the fishing.”
