New Texas Tournament Circuit Announced

Texas tournament anglers get ready - there's an all-new tournament series in town, perfect for anglers who enjoy fishing in teams. The Texas Team Trail tournament circuit is designed exclusively for team competition, and it's all set to begin March 10th, 2012.

There will be a total of 4 qualifying events, plus a year-end Championship. The Texas Team Trail website is already accepting registrations for all events online and offers plenty of detail on the circuit, including official rules, tournament structure, payout and incentives.

In addition, the new circuit includes unprecedented television coverage. You can catch the action unfold on the world Fishing Network.

"The Texas Team Trail will create tremendous opportunities for bass tournament anglers throughout the state of Texas," said Mike Hastings, Tournament Director. "The payout structure is incredible and with a low-cost, budget friendly entry fee, anglers have a real opportunity to cash in. And when you consider the sponsor bonus contingency prizes available, there's just not another team trail in Texas that delivers this much value to the angler."

For a $250 entry fee, anglers have a chance to win a fully equipped boat and motor package at every Texas Team Trail event. The year-end Championship culminates with two more boat and motor packages being awarded to the teams competing in that event. To qualify for the two-day Championship, anglers must simply fish all four qualifying events.

In addition to the deep payout, the Texas Team Trail offers anglers a never-before-seen amount of contingency opportunity. The circuit is pre-approved with multiple contingency bonus programs made available to Ranger, Stratos and Triton boat owners as well as Mercury and Evinrude through 50th place. Cabela's will offer their lucrative Angler Cash incentives at each Texas Team Trail event.

"We are looking forward to the opportunity to work with some great partners to build an exciting event for Texas anglers," said Chris Sprangers, Brand Partnership Manager for Cabela's. "It's great to be part of such a strong commitment to the sport of fishing."
