2014 5th Annual Texas Tech Bass Anglers Fundraiser results

   The 5th Annual Texas Tech Open was hosted on Amistad Reservoir once again and there was a good turn out considering the tough fishing and foul weather. The tournament could not have been possible without our sponsors, so the club would like to thank Powertackle, Hooters, PK Docks, Mesilla Valley Transport, McGuire Industries, Santone Lures, Xcite Baits, Surelife, Costa Del Mar, Gander Mountain, Lews, Duckett Fishing, Javabone's Rods, and Clem & Rachel Elam.

 

    Day One looked to make for a very promising tournament with three 14lb+ bags being weighed in. The biggest being 15.70lbs with a 6.43lb Big Bass being weighed by two of our own team members Travis McGuire & Layne Bynum, also James Burkeen & Henry McElroy weighed in with a close 15.32lbs. 

 

   Day Two proved to be a lot tougher with a typical early spring cold front hitting with high winds.  Rene Meza & Ray Benoit weighed the biggest bag Sunday with 12.05lbs and a 4.44lb Big Bass. We had a unique thing happen with one of our very own teams winning the open for the first time but Cale Sanders & Zane Edwards made a run for it on Day 2 with the winning margin only being .05 ounces.

2013 4th  Annual Texas Tech Bass Anglers Fundraiser results

  The 4th annual Texas Tech open hosted at Lake Amistad Reservoir was a large success. This tournament could not have been possible with out of our sponsors, and our club would like to give a special thanks to Power Tackle, Hooters, Hag’s Tornadoes, PK docs, Noise Attention Construction, Lake Fork Lures and Sure Life. With 41 teams fishing the open, a large sack was bound to be caught. The tournament featured several experienced anglers including previous Bass Master Classic Winner Denny Brauer,  former professional angler and Tim Reneau, and BASS battle on the border co angler winner of Bill Fillmon.

  However, on Saturday it was a very rare day for the lake. With almost low wind and a high sun, many anglers felt their patterns would change. Most teams found their fish on the Mexican side of the lake particularly in Burro and the Rain God fishing swim baits. On Day one the biggest bass of the tournament was weighed in of 8.77 lbs by Orlando Pacheo and Laticia Torres, however Tim Huckaby and Tyler Young lead the tournament with a little over 27 lbs  and a 8.17 lbs kicker fish.

  Day two of the tournament was more of a typical day on the lake with high winds coming from the north causing anglers to fish some different water to stay protected from the wind. Despite harsh winds several teams brought in a heavier sack than the day before. Tim Huckaby and Tyler Young continued to dominate the tournament weighing in the only twenty plus sacks of the tournament. They finished the tournament far ahead of the rest of the field with 50.4 lbs as their  two day total. In second place Tim and Judy Reneau weighed in a 36.06 lbs sack, and Weldon McGuire and Chris Snyder finished in third place with a heavy 34 lbs sack.

2012 3rd annual Texas Tech Bass Anglers Fundraiser Results

With 34 teams entered to fish the 3rd Annual Fundraiser Tournament conditions were not going to make it easy. Rain and cold pounded the lake but the fish were biting. The winning weight was the largest 5 fish bag that has been weighed in for the three years the tournament has been going.

Thanks to Sandy Creek Marina for hosting the tournament, Hag's Tornado for their continued support of our club and generous donations for the raffle, Weldon McGuire for donating and making the plaques, Cody Javarone for building a custom Double T rod, Don Parsons for donating to the raffle, as well as Brush Creek Bait and Tackle for donating a reel for the raffle.

Also a special thanks to everyone that came out and fished, even in the weather. We hope to see you all again next year.
