A LOOK AT THE TTBC

The Toyota Texas Bass Classic is a no-entry fee, $100,000 tournament that raises funds for the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department. With conservation top-of-mind, only bass over 21-inches are brought to weigh-in for fans to see. All other keeper bass are weighed, recorded by a ride-along judge, and immediately released into Lake Conroe. Very much a festival, the tournament also includes a huge bbq competition and top-notch country music concerts each day.
