7th Annual Bass Invitational Tournament

The HBCD 7th Annual Bass Invitational Tournament was held at Sam Rayburn Lake – Cassell Boykin Marina (North of Sam Rayburn Lake).  We had a total of 8 Bass Anglers showing up for the tournament while several called and dropped out due to some issues on their end. First day of the Tournament on April 10, 2019 was beautiful but strong winds. The only bass angler that brought to the weight station was Clifton Bryant with 1 bass at a length of 161/4″ and a 1.86 lbs.  The rest of the anglers that day caught several basses but was not over the required lengths.  Saturday, April 20, 2019 that day was a good day with several basses caught.  Clifton Bryant had a hot hand and hauled in 3 basses with a combined weight of 6.53 lbs. that day.  Rick Schaeffer hauled in 3 basses as well with a total weigh of 5.48 lbs. With one bass being “dead” – rules requires to deduct the weight at 1/2 lbs. This gives him a official weight at 4.98lbs that day.  Patrick Stuckey hauled in 1 bass at 1.44lbs.  The rest of the anglers had basses but again as the rules specified must be over the required minimum length.  Saturday was a good day for all and the weather was perfect.  Wind was at 3 to 4 mph that day.

Congratulation to Clifton Bryant for winning the HBCD 7th Annual Bass Invitational Tournament as well the lunker award.  No one have exceed the required 6lbs lunker bass prize of $900.00.  As no one won the 6lb required bass lunker, it will roll over to next year tournament and increase to $1,000.00.   Please go to the 7th Annual Bass Tournament link above and see all photos and weight charts.
