More than 300 participate in inaugural event in the Texas Tournament Trail Championship
Lufkin, TX — More than 300 anglers from Texas, Arizona, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Mississippi competed Saturday in the Texas Team Trail Tournament at Sam Rayburn Reservoir.
The Sam Rayburn event, held on the south end of the lake, is the first of four qualifying events that guarantee a fully-rigged, tournament-equipped bass boat package as the first-place prize.

“The event is designed as a team competition, and anglers have an unprecedented opportunity in terms of payout, sponsor bonuses and television coverage,” said promoter Bart Schad.
