Kelley Hudson won this past weekends West Region Trail tournament on Possum Kingdom. Kelley had a five fish string that weighed 19.52 anchored by the Big Bass of the tournament, a 6.82lb Bass. Finishing in second place was Everett Moore with a five fish string weighing 15.79 and claiming the the final spot was Bobby Maynard with his five fish weighing 15.55lbs. A variety of methods were used by the winning anglers. Carolina rigged plastics on points, flipping cover, and swimbaits in cuts and coves proved to be productive ways of catching Bass. Congratulations to the winners. Next stop will be Lake Buchanan on April 22nd. We hope to see you there.
We have made a few changes to the Primary and Secondary menus above in an effort to group common areas of interest and provide more categories of information.
- The “High School” and “Junior” pages that were on the secondary menu have been moved to the primary menu under “Youth”.
- A “State Championship ” page has been added to the secondary menu. This will provide a place for information specific to the state championship to be displayed and stay visible for longer. We will also be able to display ALL state sponsors now. This will help in the effort to get more sponsors and meet our obligations to display logos and links to sponsor pages. The Sponsor Programs page will stay on the primary menu and provide detail about various awards programs offered by national sponsors.
- Regions can also display sponsors specific to their Region trails. Please see the South East Region’s solution to that need. They display one image on their Tournament page with all their sponsors. When that image is clicked, it takes the user to the SE Region Sponsors page where more detail is displayed about each sponsor.
Sometimes, when you’re not in the tournament, you just want to help out. So…if you want to help get professional anglers to the stage at the BASSMASTER Classic, call or email John Fontenot at firstname.lastname@example.org / 832-233-6500. You will be doing what we all do on Saturday, driving a truck pulling a boat. The only difference is, it will be at Minute Maid Park at the super bowl of bass fishing, March 24 – 26. Anyone willing to volunteer to work behind the scenes at the Classic, please contact John Fontenot. Thanks in advance!!

Greetings gentlemen. Hope this finds your entire club catching fish. For those club’s fishing the State Championship this year, the deadline for registration is January 31st. With a start date of February 15th, that leaves the Directors two weeks to finalize everyone’s registration, get equipment on site and get set up for the event. There are links to all the forms you need in the sidebar on the right of this page. An agenda will be published shortly.
If you are wondering how the fishing is down there, check out Matt Reed’s facebook page. Matt guides every year on Falcon during his off season from the pro tour and the pictures show they are ON!! One picture will even give you a clue what color crank bait to throw.
We appreciate your continued participation and support of the Texas BASS Nation and look forward to seeing you on Lake Falcon!

B.A.S.S. was founded as a grassroots organization in 1967 by Ray Scott, dedicated to organizing the bass anglers of America, stimulating public awareness of bass fishing as a major participation sport, improve our members’ skills as bass anglers through the exchange of expert bass catching techniques and ideas, creating a tournament trail, improve the environment by uniting and amplifying the voices of anglers, and to secure a future for our youth.
Texas B.A.S.S. Nation has set up a series of competitive tournament trails all across Texas, which are dedicated to the original principles of BASSMASTER. These events provide anglers with the opportunity to advance and compete at the highest levels of our sport. No other grass roots organization provides a path to the BASSMASTER Classic.
Membership is easy – join a Texas BASS Nation Affiliated Club, or sign up as an At-Large member. Tournament registration is easy. Just contact the Regional Director in your area for more information and get signed up to compete for your opportunity to advance.
