Angler of the year title up for grabs
EW SMYRNA BEACH, Fla. (May 23, 2017) – The Texas Team Trail (TXTT) presented by Cabela’s will host its 2017 championship event on June 3-4, at Lake Livingston. The two-day event wraps up the 2017 will determine the Lucas Oil Team of the Year.
Registration for the event is already underway – anglers can secure an opportunity to pre-fish Thursday and Friday, June 1-2, by completing their registration online or via phone prior to midnight on Wednesday, May 31. Additionally, all anglers that pre-register online at www.texasteamtrail.comwill be entered into a drawing for a $100 Cabela’s gift card.
The 90,000-acre, shallow-water reservoir is located on the Trinity River, 50 miles north of Houston and has been a staple stop of the TXTT circuit. All teams who entered all four regular-season events and participated in at least two are automatically qualified for the championship event. A fully rigged Ranger Z519, valued at $45,000, is guaranteed for first place. Additionally, the second-place finishers will take home a Ranger Z518 valued at $34,000.
The championship will also settle the Lucas Oil Team of the Year race. With the top-10 teams only separated by 177 points and double points awarded at the championship, many teams are still in contention to win the coveted title. The Lucas Oil Team of the Year will receive custom rings and paid 2018 entry fees, courtesy of Lucas Oil.
On-site registration is set for Friday, April 28, from 4-6 p.m. at Waterfront Lodge and Marina (371 Navaho Trial, Onolaska, TX 77360).
