The Southeast Texas B.A.S.S. Federation, a division of the Texas Chapter of the National B.A.S.S. Federation, will be holding its first tournament event for the 1999 tournament season on Lake Sam Rayburn, TX.

The B.A.S.S. Federation, an affiliated Chapter of the National B.A.S.S. (Bass Anglers Sportsmans Society), gives a grassroots opportunity for local and regional bass anglers to fish and compete at a local level with an opportunity for advancement to the Regional Championships, National Championships, and a berth at the BassMaster World Classic's. The B.A.S.S. Federation circuit is the "only" tournament circuit, other than the B.A.S.S. circuit itself, that can provide an open invitation to become a "World Classic" angler.

The Texas Division, of the National B.A.S.S. Federation Chapter, is made up of Texas Based local bass clubs which are members of the Texas B.A.S.S. Federation. Those clubs are then invited to attend and compete in the local tournaments of the B.A.S.S. Federation which provides points and standings which are then tallied for the top anglers. Those top anglers who qualify at season's end are then invited to fish the Regional Championship with an opportunity for advancement to the National's and then the BassMaster Classic's.

The First tournament of the season, for the Southeast Texas B.A.S.S. Federation region, will be held at Millcreek Park on Saturday, January 23, 1999.
