The Sam Rayburn Reservoir is arguably one of the best Bass fishing lakes in the States and The Texas Team Trail was scheduled to visit it twice in 2019. The February event had to be postponed because of severe flooding, so it was moved to coincide with the meeting in mid May, taking place on the Friday, with the second, totally separate competition taking place the day after. It seems that the weather just doesn't want to play ball this year as one of the pre-fish days was interrupted by a hail storm unloading rocks of ice the size of tennis balls all over the lake. On their early morning arrival at the ramps for event 1 the teams are greeted by strong winds and heavy rain. The tournament officials are happy to give it the green light, so with their waterproofs about to be well and truly tested, it's game on. The consensus is that with all the rain there won't be any topwater action with the fish moving out to a depth of 14-20ft. But despite this there are going to be some big Bass caught and there will be some heavy bags at the end of the day.
