The official rules for the Texas Bassmaster Team Trail (TBTT) have been updated to better align with published rules by B.A.S.S. regarding participation age and maximum outboard horsepower. In addition an exception has been added to the off-limits and official practice period for the Sam Rayburn qualifying tournament. This exception was made because the Sam Rayburn TBTT qualifying tournament fell back-to-back with the Texas B.A.S.S. Nation (TBN) Southeast Region qualifying tournament. The intent of this exception is to allow all anglers, including those fishing the TBN Southeast Region qualifying tournament on Sam Rayburn, two full pre-fishing days. Future planning of TBN Regional qualifying tournaments and TBTT qualifying tournaments will make efforts to not schedule events back-to-back on the same water to prevent conflicts and allow all participating anglers equal pre-fishing days.
The updated rules can be found on the official Texas Bassmaster Team Trail page.
