We had 37 teams last week, and paid 4 places, our best turn out in years on Travis Tuesday. No big bass was caught, the roll over pot this week will be $1095 plus Tuesday's entries. We have been averaging over 30 boats lately, as such the Big Bass Pot this Tuesday should be $1250+. Somebody needs to catch a 7 pounder!!!

With 37 teams and over 60 anglers, we qualified for Skeeter Real Money once again (six weeks in a row now). Skeeter owners don't forget to sign up for Real Money to get your bonus winnings. Good luck everybody, have fun and catch some good fish Tuesday night!

Registration and weigh-in at Mansfield Dam Park, otherwise we have the same rules as in the past years.

Check in will start at 5:30PM at Mansfield Dam Park, all boats must draw a number for take off. Boats will be launched by their draw order starting at 6:30PM. Please come by the launch boat with your livewells open as we call your number. Weigh-in will start at 10:00PM, only the boats with a chip on the table by 10:00PM will be allowed to weigh. So drop off your chip, then go trailer your boat up to the lot to weigh your fish. As long as your chip is on the table in time you will get to weigh your fish

This will be a best 5 bass tournament, any combination of LMB, spot, smallie, or guadalupe bass, a minimum of 14 inches. There is a 7 pound minimum for Big Bass. If the pot is not won it will rollover to the next week. At the end of the year if not collected the pot will be split among the top finishing qualified teams in the final night's payout. You must have fished at least one event to qualify for Big Bass pot money on the final night.

For the complete set of rules please go to:

Brooke and Ellis bested a 33 boat field last night and won $495. Great turn out considering the storm that blew through right before the tournament. Once the tournament started we ended up having a lovely evening on Lake Travis. The big bass pot was not won, as such the rollover pot will be $1260 plus next week's entries. Complete results and photos are here:

I was surprised to see so many teams got skunked. Did they actually get skunked or do they just not bother to check in if they know that they are not in the running?

A lot of teams just throw their fish back once they realize what the cutoff weight is to win money. Once three teams weigh in with 10lbs (and you know TTZ is only paying three places that night) a lot of people who know they have less than 10 lbs will then just throw their fish back to speed things up and reduce the stress on the fish.

We will also announce the cut off weight when people are walking up to help make this process easier for the anglers. Some people choose to weigh their fish no matter what the weights are and that is certainly OK as well. You've paid your entry and you are certainly entitled to weigh any legal fish you may have. We are good either way, but to answer your question no those people are not getting skunked. We had several teams throw their fish out last week after some bigger bags came in earlier. Additionally, some teams put in at other ramps, and they just don't bother to come back to Mansfield if they know they don't have weights comparible to recent winning bags.
