This is Passport to Texas

Texas has earned its bragging rights when it comes to our state’s bass fishery. And Lake Conroe is among the top producers of some our state’s biggest bass. So it makes sense the annual Toyota Texas Bass Classic, takes place there.

06—This is a great opportunity for Texas Parks and Wildlife department to promote the great fishing we have in our state.

Dave Terre, with Inland fisheries, says 50 professional anglers will compete over the three days during the seventh annual Bass Classic; the top-10 will fish the final round on Sunday.

11—Lake Conroe was chosen because it is a producer of huge largemouth bass. So, anybody coming to the event will likely
see some pretty good sized fish. Maybe a fish of a lifetime.

Over the years, these events, which are free to the public, have raised funds for TPW youth fishing programs.

20—A total of six of them [events] have provided 1.5 million dollars in funding to support youth fishing programs in our state. No other state has this opportunity. It’s a great opportunity for the public to come see, and enjoy, an event that supports Texas Parks and Wildlife in so many different ways.

The family-friendly Toyota Texas Bass Classic is October 4 – 6 at Lake Conroe. Admission is free if you sign up for tickets online at

Additional details about the event on tomorrow’s show.
