    Toyota Texas Bass Classic Anglers to Appear at Academy Sports + Outdoors Stores
    Pro anglers will sign autographs at Houston-area stores, Sept. 28

    Conroe, Texas– Nine of the top bass anglers in the country will sign autographs for fans at three Houston-area Academy Sports + Outdoors Stores, Tuesday, Sept. 28, as part of the Toyota Texas Bass Classic. Fishing legend Kevin VanDam will appear at the Conroe store. Greg Hackney, Mark Davis, Scott Suggs and Ron Shuffield will appear at the Humble store. Mike McClelland, John Crews, Bryan Thrift and Gary Klein will appear at the Tomball location. All appearances will take place on Sept. 28 from 7 – 9 p.m.

    The world championship of professional bass fishing, the Toyota Texas Bass Classic (TTBC) is a three-day tournament held on Lake Conroe, Oct. 1 – 3. The TTBC’s 50-angler field combines the top PAA anglers from the FLW Tour, Bassmaster Elite Series and PAA Bass Pro Shops Tournament Series presented by Carrot Stix.

    VanDam is the all-time leading money winner in professional fishing with over $5 million in career earnings. In 2010, he earned his third Bassmaster Classic title and added his sixth Toyota Tundra Angler of the Year award.

    An eight-year pro fishing veteran, Hackney was runner-up for the Bassmaster Angler of the Year title in 2004, his rookie season on the tour. He won the FLW Tour’s 2009 Forrest Wood Cup Championship in Pittsburgh.

    Davis has been fishing professionally for 25 years. He won the Bassmaster Classic and Angler of the Year titles in 1995, the first time both titles have been won by the same angler.

    Suggs became the first bass pro to claim a $1 million payday after winning the 2007 Forrest Wood Cup, the FLW Tour’s championship.

    One of the true veterans of the sport, Shuffield has competed on the BASS and FLW circuits for a quarter-century. Shuffield has garnered more than $1.4 million in winnings, with seven career victories.

    McClelland has tallied six total wins en route to earning $1.3 million in his 14-year career.

    A 10-year veteran, Crews got his Bassmaster Elite Series season off with a bang with a 1-ounce win over Skeet Reese on the California Delta last March. Crews stayed consistent all year and qualified for the Elite Series “post-season” in Alabama.

    Thrift has seen success this year on the FLW Tour. Thrift captured an FLW Tour win on Lake Norman near Charlotte in spring 2010 and fished solidly all season to win his first FLW Tour Angler of the Year points champion­ship.

    Klein won the second B.A.S.S. tournament he ever entered and has qualified 28 times for the Bassmaster Classic. He won the Angler of the Year titles in 1989 and 1993.

    Default The Toyota Texas Bass Classic (TTBC



    The Toyota Texas Bass Classic (TTBC) will take place on Lake Conroe, Oct. 1-3. The three-day tournament has grown to become a highly significant event in the world of professional bass fishing. With many industry insiders calling for a unifying world championship, Bassfan.com states “many have argued that the Toyota Texas Bass Classic (TTBC) is in fact a unifying championship.”

    For that reason, Bassfan.com has elected to include the TTBC in the BassFan World Rankings. A new edition of the Rankings will be published after the conclusion of the TTBC.

    The final 50 angler field was announced this week at a tournament press conference. The field is comprised of defending champion Dave Lefebre, the top 15 from the 2010 FLW Tour Angler of the Year standings, top 15 from the 2010 Bassmaster Elite Series Angler of the Year standings, the top 15 from the PAA Bass Pro Shops Angler of the Year standings and four tournament exemptions.

    “TTBC likely the strongest championship field assembled in at least the past decade.” – Bassfan.com

    Question Study: Texas Top Dog in Economic Impact of Hunting, Fis

    Study: Texas Top Dog in Economic Impact of Hunting, Fishing March 24, 2008 (Texas)

    A recently released nationwide study showed Texas at the top of the list when it comes to the economic impact of hunters and anglers.

    The results of the study, called “Hunting and Fishing: Bright Stars of the American Economy – A force as big as the outdoors,” take into account a number of variables, including total number of participants, number of jobs provided, amount of money generated and total tax revenue for each state. Results are based on 2006 numbers.

    Texas boasts 2.6 million sportsmen who infuse the hunting and fishing industry with $6.6 billion per year. Tax revenue for the state was $1.3 billion and 106,000 jobs are supported by hunting.

    Florida was in second place with two million hunters and fishermen and $4.8 billion spent.

    Texas did not take first place in all of the possible categories in the report. Pennsylvanians placed first for spending the most time outdoors and Georgia was the most traveled to state for hunting.

    The survey revealed that nationally in 2006, the combined 34 million hunters over the age of 16 generated $76 billion into the economy.

    More details from the study can be found at www.sportsmenslink.org or www.nssf.org.

    Toyota Texas Bass Classic Only One Month Away

    Team Angling Competition Benefits Charity; Kids 17 & under Free




    Houston, Texas – The Toyota Texas Bass Classic, a Professional Anglers Association sanctioned event, is only one month away from its return to Lake Fork. The team competition benefits the Texas Parks & Wildlife Department (TPWD). It will feature the biggest names in professional angling for three days of Tournament fishing and Trace Adkins headlining an all-star country music line-up. The Tournament is held April 18 – 20.



    Lake Fork is one of the most prolific fishing spots in the United States for largemouth bass. The TPWD manages the lake's fishery with very strict rules designed to protect fish of certain sizes. Fish in a “slot” between 14 and 24 inches must be returned to the lake immediately when they are caught. The Tournament’s rules have been designed to obey the slot limits without inhibiting the anglers’ competitive zeal. Independent observers on each boat use Boga-Grip scales to weigh each fish and live scoring keeps the fans up-to-date throughout the day.



    The second-year event consists of 26 four-man teams captained by some of the top anglers in the world, including: 2008 Bassmaster Classic winner Alton Jones, four-time Angler of the Year Kevin VanDam and 2007 winning captain Terry “Big Show” Scroggins. Teams split into groups of two and fish in morning and afternoon flights. Only the top five teams by cumulative weight advance to Sunday’s final round. The team with the largest total weight after three days will win the winner’s share of the $750,000 purse.



    Country music star Trace Adkins will be the headline entertainer for the event, performing on Saturday, April 19 at 5:30 p.m. Local favorite Kacey Musgraves will perform earlier on Saturday. Robert Earl Keen will be the featured entertainer on Sunday, April 20, with Roger Creager also performing on Sunday. In addition, there will be recreational and educational activities for kids and families during the Tournament.



    CBS Sports will broadcast a one-hour special reprising the Toyota Texas Bass Classic on Sunday, May 11 from 5:00 – 6:00 p.m. EST and it will feature highlights from the three Tournament days, with a focus on the final teams and the awards ceremony.





    A three-day Ticket Book valid for all the events at Lake Fork, April 18, 19 and 20 is $20 in advance and $25 on-site. One-day tickets are also available for $10. Kids 17 and under are admitted free with a ticketed adult. Proceeds go towards a $250,000 donation to the Texas Parks & Wildlife Department. Last year’s proceeds assisted the stocking of fish in Texas neighborhood lakes in an effort to introduce kids to fishing. Tickets are now on sale at www.toyotatexasbassclassic.com or 1-866-907-0143. Three-day Ticket Books are also available at participating Bass Pro Shops and Brookshire’s.



    The Toyota Texas Bass Classic is sanctioned by the Professional Anglers Association with technical assistance and support from Texas Parks and Wildlife Department’s Inland Fisheries Division. The Toyota Texas Bass Classic benefits the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department and its outdoor recreation programs. Title sponsor for the event is Toyota. Tournament partners include Bass Pro Shops, Nitro, 96.3 KSCS and 96.7 the Texas Twister.

    “Our hope is that by adding a one-day ticket option to our existing three-day ticket book we will allow more fans the opportunity to attend the Tournament and musical concerts,” said Tournament Director Lenny Francoeur. “We have recognized the concern that many fans traveling to Lake Fork are unable to attend all three days, and we want to encourage them to be there, even if only for one day.”



    The one-day tickets can be purchased at www.toyotatexasbassclassic.com or 1-866-907-0143 and at the Tournament main gate. All advance orders must denote the day that they plan to attend when buying. The one-day ticket option still contains all of the exciting festivities at Lake Fork, including: elite Tournament fishing, musical concerts (Saturday & Sunday), parking and family fun zone. Kids 17 and under are admitted free with a ticketed adult.



    A three-day ticket book valid for all the events at Lake Fork is $20 in advance and $25 on-site. Area Bass Pro Shops and Brookshire’s are selling the three-day ticket books.



    All proceeds from the Toyota Texas Bass Classic go towards a $250,000 donation to the Texas Parks & Wildlife Department. Last year’s proceeds assisted the stocking of fish in Texas neighborhood lakes in an effort to introduce kids to fishing.

  10. Default A sought after race

    The congressional district of Texas 22nd has been in news recently. It has attracted the attention of the people across the world as the constituency held two elections on the same day. This was mainly because the House Majority Leader Tom DeLay, who represented the constituency, withdrew from the election after winning the primary. The leader retired mainly as a result of allegations made on him on charges of corruption. As there was a need to fill the seat vacated by the leader for his unexpired term, a special election was held.

    The special elections of the Texas 22nd district saw Shelley Sekula-Gibbs win as a write-in candidate for the unexpired term of the republican leader Tom DeLay. Sekula-Gibbs was sworn in on November 13. Sekula-Gibbs’ situation is similar to one experienced by Congressman Neil Abercrombie, who won a special election in September 1986, while simultaneously losing the primary election for a full term in Hawaii's 1st congressional district. He, thus, was elected to a term of a few short months, though he was later elected in 1990 and has held the seat since.

    In the following general election there were three main candidates: Democrat and former US Representative Nick Lampson, Libertarian Party candidate Bob Smither, and Republican Sekula-Gibbs. Only Lampson's and Smither's names appeared on the ballot, as Shelley Sekula-Gibbs had to run as a write-in candidate. In this race, Lampson captured 52% of the vote, to Sekula-Gibbs' 42%, and Smither collected 6%.

    This year, the candidates standing for election in this district include known names like former Sugar Land mayor Dean Hrbacek , former Pasadena mayor John Manlove, former John Cornyn Chief of Staff Pete Olson, Family District Judge Jim Squier, State Representative Bob Talton, and NASA contractor Ryan Rowley. Dean Hrbacek is a former Councilman and Mayor of Sugar Land, a business attorney, board certified in tax law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, and a Certified Public Accountant.
