News and Updates

09/16 - We are only a few short days away from our season opener and it's looking like it'll be a good one. Water level is about a half inch low and sitting around 82 degrees. We are also still missing CTHSTT and SAF Waivers from a number of teams. Getting these submitted before the tournament will help us get everyone through registration and the boat number draw in a timely manner. We are still working with the Corps of Engineers to open the gates early and hopefully they will. We are also still talking about if this will be a trailering event or not and will be posting our decision by Friday. One final note is our Junior Angler Division. As stated earlier, if your angler/team are planning on fishing this division we need to know before the season opener. If there are not enough interest, we will not have a Junior side to our Trail. Currently we have no-one that has requested to fish the Junior Division. Weather is going to be great, Fishing is going to be great and is going to great to see new and old friends again.


09/13 - Here are some updates as we get ready to kick off our saeson opener. Our official launch and weigh-in site will be the ramps at Twin Bridges Park on Lake Waco. Launch Time will be Safe-Light (0645 - 0650) on the 19th of September and the scales will open at 2:00pm and close at 2:30pm. The closing time could change based on the number of team we have sign up. Stand-by for that update. As you know the lake is now Off Limits until the tournament. We are currently talking with the Corps of Engineers to have the gates open at 0500 and hope they will. A final up date and something we are trying this season. We have finally put the final touches on our Junior Division. Here is how that will work. If your angler is in the 6th grade up to and including the age of 14 they may fish our Junior Division if they choose. The anglers coach will need to confirm with our staff that their Jr angler wishes to fish the Junior side. All rules remain the the same for our Junion side as with our high school anglers except, If your angler chooses to fish the junior side they must fish the junior side for the remainer of the season. Those anglers wishing to fish the Jr Division must inform CTHSTT staff before the season opener. The Jr side will be fished at the same time, on the same day and on the same lake as the high school side, with the top 3 anglers on the Jr side being awarded seperate prizes from that of the high scholl side. A lot to take in but can't wait to get started. See everyone Sunday.
