Bass fishing tournament set for Cedar Creek Lake




Gun Barrel City will host a bass fishing tournament March 3-4 at Tom Finley Park.

Texas Tournament Zone will pay out $20,000 for the first place prize. Gun Barrel City will pay $5,000 from the city’s Hotel Motel Tax fund for promoting and sponsoring the event, and the prize money will come from anger entries.

TTZ officials say the tournaments host about 400 anglers per event, and that they hope the addition of the North Texas Trail that includes Cedar Creek Lake will grow the event larger.

Promotion of the event will include banners, radio advertisement, email campaigns and social media.

The event is expected to bring new lodging and food and beverage business to Gun Barrel City during the two-day event.

The 2017 schedule for TTZ tournaments includes lakes LBJ, Travis, Buchanan, Belton, Whitney, Cedar Creek, Texoma and Ray Roberts.

Fishing Report from TPWD (Aug. 10)

EXCELLENT. Water normal stain; 89 degrees; 4.42 feet low. Crappie are excellent on main lake brush piles in 15-22 feet of water using minnows and jigs. Largemouth bass are excellent on docks in 3-8 feet of water, and in 15-20 feet of water using shaky heads, crankbaits and Carolina rigs. White bass and hybrid bass can be caught surfacing all over the lake in the morning, moving to main lake humps using popper style baits and small spoons. Catfish are good on main lake humps with live or frozen shad. Report by Kyle Miers, Lake Country Outfitters.
