Bass tournament mecca

Recommended Posts

I have a hypothetical question. The question if a guy had enough money to pickup and leave his current surroundings and just wanted to fish tournaments the rest of his life where would this place be? I am talking money tournaments with good payouts.  Also talking an area or it could even be a lake that has that many tournament where a guy could fish them on a very regular basis. All within a few hours drive if a place like this even exists. Would love to hear opinions and your idea of where this place would be.

Northern Alabama or East Texas would be your best bet.  Reservoirs like Guntersville, Sam Rayburn, and Toledo Bend have tournaments on them almost every day!

Lake O in Florida would keep you busy.

Many of the top pros have relocated to Texas & quite a few retiring ones.

 

Denny Brauer recently retired to Texas, his reason the level of competition at local events.

There’s 400 tournaments a year on Sam Rayburn. 

 

It’s inexpensive to live around the Rayburn / Toledo Bend area if you don’t  care about having waterfront property.

It's a long list of California tournament pro's who have moved to Texas.
