We are very excited about HBC 3! We attended HBC 1 and 2, now it

is coming to one of our home lakes! We are national sponsors, but I

am going to be a VTO for this event, and I know somebody in my household that wants to fish in the event. Kudos to Ken Huddleston

and Ron Cervenka for putting on a great event dedicated to the trophy

hunters.

This should be exciting, but I'm surprised they

could get the Kalifornia guys to come to Texas!

HBC is going national, so Texas is going to be the first stop.

Roadwarrior, I don't see why not. There will be some open slots after

the first 20 in the standing decide if they are coming to Texas. I know

for a fact that Butch Brown and Shuan Bailey will be down at Amistad, there are a few others out in California that are working on coming

to Texas. Tony wants to fish it, and I am going to be a VTO for the event.

With the change to the pre fishing rule; you can pre fish up to the day before the tournament, makes it feasible to only take 1 week off work to travel and fish this tournament successfully.

There are 50 spots open; 20 spots pre qualified, that leaves 30 spots open to local or other qualified trophy bassers. This is a put your skills to the test against the best type of event, one big bass wins it all.

PS; the new format makes this a 2 day event, the top 3 fish for the $50K the second day.

I am soo tempted to fish it. Byron Velvick told me he would even show me around the lake before hand and I could stay at his lodge but I just cant afford it right now. Towing my boat, $1000 entry fee, It would be fun though. I am sure there are some boys in Texas who can stck pigs when they need to but I like the the Cali guys in this one

Well, the Cali boys have had two shots on local water and haven't

caught a 10 between them. I guess that must be part of the reason

why they moved the event to Texas!

:D

If you plan to fish this tournament, this week is the dead line to sign up, in fact it may already be filled. I'm trying to rearrange some out of country business trips, so far it's not going well for me.

November at Amistad; have no idea what the conditions maybe, stormy transitional weather? 10 lb bass could be a big fish that time of year at Amistad.

Its been cancelled due to economy and some of the sponosrs backed out.

Sorry to see this.   Was looking forward to seeing some big fish caught.

Just got the word from Ron that HBC-3 was canceled. The HBC-4 is still on the table for 2009 pre spawn period, if the ecconomy recovers.
