Registration for the event is already underway – anglers can secure an opportunity to pre-fish Thursday and Friday, May 31 – June 1, by completing their registration online or via phone prior to Wednesday, May 30.
Known by tournament fishermen as “Big Sam,” the sprawling Angelina River impoundment is a favorite stop for TXTT and typically produces impressive results. 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-20 teams only separated by 122 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 2019 entry fees, courtesy of Lucas Oil.
On-site registration is set for Friday, June 1, from 4-6 p.m. at Umphrey Pavilion (5438 RR 255 West, Sam Rayburn, TX 75951). At least one team member must attend, as boat numbers will be assigned during this time.
