ATTENTION: Stop #1 at Sam Rayburn to be a Trailered Event

SPRINGFIELD, MO. (February 15, 2024) – The first qualifying event of the 2024 Bass Pro Shops & Cabela’s Texas Team Trail presented by Progressive is coming to Sam Rayburn this Saturday, February 17. Teams from around the state of Texas will be competing for a first-place prize of a 2024 Ranger Z518 boat, motor, trailer package valued at $52,995.

After careful consideration regarding the wind/weather situation this coming weekend, and for the safety of all competitors, TXTT tournament officials have decided to allow trailering at this event.

Teams completing the mandatory on-site registration process Friday evening between 3-6pm will be allowed to launch at any public boat ramp on Sam Rayburn Saturday morning and perform a safety check of their equipment before departing from the ramp. Boats may begin launching into the water at 6:00am CST. First cast will be at 7:00am and fishing must cease (lines out) at 3:00pm. Anglers may then load their boats and trailer with their day’s catch to Umphrey Family Pavilion for weigh-in. One team angler must check in and turn in their buoy at the American flag on the back side of the trailer/stage by 4:15pm to avoid late penalties. Each team will be issued an official TXTT weigh-in bag upon checking in and will be required to use this bag to bring their fish to the weigh-in line. All teams, regardless of having fish or not, MUST return to Umphrey Family Pavilion and check out with staff before leaving the lake so we know you are safely off the water.

Sam Rayburn will be off limits to fishing (see attached map).

Because of the weather conditions forecasted for Friday, teams are encouraged to pay their tournament entry fee and optional Angler’s Advantage entries in advance either online or by calling the registration office. This will streamline the on-site registration process Friday evening. The number to the office is 580-765-9031. Online registration link is here:
