Registration for the Collegiate Bass Texas Shootout to Begin This Week
SAN ANTONIO, Texas – The Association of Collegiate Anglers and the Cabela's Collegiate Bass Fishing are excited to announce that the registration for the series' first annual Collegiate Bass Texas Shootout will be this Wednesday, February 11.The creation of the new event is now offering college anglers a fourth opportunity to compete in the Cabela's Collegiate Bass Fishing Series and earn valuable points towards the Cabela's School of the Year points on April 26 at Lake Texoma. The event will consist of a standard tournament format of two angler teams fishing for victory with their best five bass. Lake Texoma is one of the hottest bass fishing lakes in the region right now and collegiate anglers can expect to catch a mixed bag of largemouth, smallmouth and spotted bass during this event. "This is a great opportunity for college anglers to earn additional Cabela's School of the Year points as it is a double points event, and get an extra chance to compete in the Cabela's Collegiate Bass Fishing Series," stated Wade Middleton, President of CarecoTV and Director of the Cabela's Collegiate Bass Fishing Series. "Because this tournament is in a different region than the additional three events, I believe that we could possibly see a home field advantage to some of the Texas and Oklahoma schools."This televised event will take place on the Sunday after a Texas Team Trail (TXTT) event on Saturday, also on Lake Texoma. Collegiate anglers who wish to compete in the TXTT event on Saturday will be given the opportunity to do so with a waived membership fee, saving each student $30, and will only have to pay the TXTT entry fee.
