This month is going to be very busy on Big Sam. We have a lot of big tournaments taking place during the month of February. On February 6th and 7th , the Anglers Choice Central Pro-Am will be held out of Twin Dikes Marina. This is were a pro fisherman is paired with a amateur fisherman. It will be a two day event and the pro fishes each day with a different amateur partner. The pro uses his boat and fishes the front of the boat and the amateur fishes out of the back of the boat. On February 14th , the Bass- N-Bucks Team tournament trail comes to the lake for one days competition held at Twin Dikes Marina. This is an open team tournament but you must be a member of Bass-N-Bucks to enter. This is a great tournament and draws a lot of teams. For more info on this tournament contact Bass- N-Bucks at 409-727-6608. On February 18-20 the Bassmaster's Central Invitational will be held out of Twin Dikes Marina. Weigh-in will start each day sometime around 2:45 PM. . This will be a great tournament to see, so bring the whole family out to the weigh-in to see their favorite pro. Some of Big Sam's really big fish should be caught because this will be during some prime fishing time on the lake. If you are not able to make it to the weigh-in, I will let you know who did what and how I did in the tournament. The day after the Bassmasters tournament on the 21st of February the Honey Hole South East Texas Team tournament will be held out of Mill Creek Park. This team tournament also draws a lot of teams and should be a good tournament. Last but not least on February 28th, ,the Red Man Cowboy Division tournament trail will be out of Twin Dikes Marina .This is a one day event and a draw tournament open to all current members. You can fish this one as a boater or no boater.

This tournament usually draws a field of about 250 fisherman. I would like to wish all the contestants in the upcoming tournaments, good fishing and good luck. Also, I would like to thank all the different Tournament trails for choosing our great lake and lakes area for holding their events.

Don't forget, this month the water temperature is very cold so wear your life jackets and dress in layers to fight off that cold air. Please watch the weather because Big Sam can be even bigger in February if you no what I mean. Also last month the Houston Boat Sport and Travel show was held in the Astro Hall and Astro Arena on the 8 thru 17th of January it was bigger and better than ever and all of us in the fishing industry worked very hard at the show but its time to get back on the water to get ready for some great Sam Rayburn pre-spawn fishing .

By the way , when I am not fishing tournaments I am a full-time fishing guide on Lake Sam Rayburn. If you would like to book a trip please call me at 409-698-9713 or Ann's Tackle Shop at 409-384-7685.

Good Luck and Good Fishing.
