FAN plans to rebound from a cold and dismal Stillhouse event with the second stop of the 2010 season on Lake Buchanan.

Buchanan is primarily known for its striped and white bass fishing but also provides some great shallow water angling for those green trash fish!  The lake is up over 1005 feet msl; with the warming temperatures and longer days it should provide some excellent bass fishing by the end of February.

If you love to fish for black bass on Buch, or anywhere for that matter, be sure to come join FAN on Feb 27...it's the ONLY open trail this year that will be making a stop on Buchanan!

Weigh-in will be held at The Edgewater Resort with the pre-tournament meeting at Packsaddle Fellowship out of Kingsland, TX.  For more info on both locations, the Faith Angler Network Team Trail or to register for the tournament follow this link:

Please consider coming out to support FAN's mission.  TTZ will have 4 teams attending this event and will be spending the night before the tournament in town...time to get your soda drinking boots on!

Brandon,

Entry fee per tournament is $150.00 with a $30.00 one time membership fee.

Here is some info regarding Championship qualification:

17.Championship Qualifications

The Championship will be a two day event (Friday/Saturday) with a $150 entry fee. The Anglers of the Year, the Highest Finishing Male/Female, and Adult Junior Teams by means of points will receive a free entry to the Championship Tournament. The Top 30 teams in year end points who have competed in at least 3 events will qualify for the Championship Tournament, and all teams who enter and compete in all five qualifying events in during the regular scheduled season will automatically qualify for Championship Tournament.

You missed the first event on Stillhouse so you cannot qualify by fishing all five tournaments and are behind 157 points from the team sitting in 30th place; but since there were only 33 teams at the first event there may be a scenario where you could possibly qualify if you decide to fish at least 3 of the 4 remaining tournaments.  

IE: If there were at least 4 jackpotters that fished Stillhouse and do not plan on fishing the entire trail you could still have a chance to qualify in the top 30.  Looking at the points standings there were three teams that did not show up for the meeting and forfeited their 25 points...so who knows.

Hope to see you at one of the events, it's a great trail and a good way to break yourself into fishing larger tournaments.  Feel free to hit me up if you have any other questions.
