Well it’s that time of year again, and we are very excited to bring in the New Year and a new season for the Fishers of Men Central Texas Division.  

2008 will be our biggest season ever,  I have spoke to several new teams that are planning on fishing our trial, some brand new to tournament fishing, some  veteran teams coming  to check out what all the buzz is about FOM CENTEX.  

Our youth/adult and male/female teams are growing and we can not wait to watch the race for the Points Champions as they conquer each lake on the schedule. Will it be you?

Lake Travis will kick off the season Saturday January 26, 2008, and Jones Brothers Park will be hosting the weigh in. You must check in at Jones Brothers Park Boat Dock prior to boat launch. After a safety and live well check we will launch at safe light according to a launch sequence at the no wake buoy just outside the park. You will also check in to the check in boat located at the same no wake buoy by 3PM.
Please take time a read the new rules for 2008 on our website
