Join the Texas Freshwater Fisheries Center for a fun-filled day of trying to catch the biggest Bluegill at the Texas Freshwater Fisheries Center and on Lake Athens.
The cost is $15 per family team, entry includes family admission.
The tournament awards prizes for the heaviest stringers of sunfish, but the event is really about adults and children having fun fishing together.
Teams must consist of one adult 18 years or older and one child under 18 years of age. Each team can weigh in a maximum of four fish. Multiple teams can fish from the same boat, making it possible for both parents to partner with different children and still fish as a family. Team members are not required to be related.
Teams may choose to fish either on Lake Athens, which is adjacent to TFFC, or in TFFC’s ponds and streams, some of which have been stocked with bluegills.
For additional details or to pre-register, please contact the Texas Freshwater Fisheries Center at 903-676-2277.
