Texas Team Trail Presented by Bass Pro Shops & Cabela’s Opens Season on Sam Rayburn

Record payouts, exceptional fishing expected for first TXTT event of 2020

NEW SMYRNA BEACH, Fla. (February 12, 2020) – The Texas Team Trail (TXTT) presented by Cabela’s will host its first regular-season event on Saturday, February 22, at Sam Rayburn Reservoir. Known by tournament fishermen as “Big Sam,” the sprawling Angelina River impoundment has previously hosted TXTT events, typically with impressive results.

Registration for the event is already underway – anglers can secure an opportunity to pre-fish Friday, February 21, by completing their registration online or via phone prior to midnight on Thursday, February 20. Additionally, all anglers that pre-register online at www.texasteamtrail.com will be entered into a drawing for a $100 Cabela’s gift card. 

The Sam Rayburn event is the first regular-season event of four 2020 qualifying events that guarantee a fully rigged, 18-foot boat, motor, trailer package as first-place prize. The winning anglers at Sam Rayburn will walk away with a brand-new Nitro Z18 powered by a 150HP Mercury, valued at $32,905.

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

On-site registration is set for Friday, February 21, from 3-6 p.m. at Umphrey Pavilion (5438 Sam Rayburn Parkway, Brookeland, TX 75931). At least one team member must attend, as boat numbers will be assigned during this time.
