Texas Team Trail bass fishing tournaments start at Sam Rayburn Reservoir

The Texas Team Trail presented by Cabela’s will host its first event of the 2014 tournament season Feb. 15 at Sam Rayburn Reservoir. The East Texas fishery remains one of the most popular destinations in the state and country for competitive bass fishermen.

Registration for the event is underway and anglers can secure an opportunity to pre-fish Feb. 14 by completing their registration online or via phone prior to midnight Feb. 13. Anglers who pre-register also will be entered into a drawing for a Power-Pole Shallow Water Anchor. In addition, anglers who opt to register online will be entered into a drawing for a bonus $100 Cabela’s gift card.

The Sam Rayburn event is the first of four qualifying events that guarantee a fully rigged, 18-foot boat, motor, trailer package as a first-place prize. The winning anglers at Rayburn will walk away with a new Triton 18XS powered by an Evinrude 150 HO.

In addition to the payout, the event offers anglers a viable opportunity in terms of sponsor bonuses and television coverage. The budget-friendly $250 entry fee, plus multiple contingency programs and a guaranteed more than 100 percent payback at every event provides value to the weekend angler.

On-site registration is set for 3-7 p.m. Feb. 14 at Umphrey Pavilion, 5438 Sam Rayburn Parkway
Brookeland, Texas 75931. At least one team member must attend, as boat numbers will be assigned. The tournament will launch Feb.15 at safe light from the pavilion and weigh-in will begin at the same location at 3 p.m.
