The Lady Bass Anglers Association will travel to Texas' beautiful Lake Ray Hubbard for the third Lady Bass Classic to conclude the 2013 tournament season. With 21,671 acres of water, Lake Ray Hubbard is located in Collin, Dallas, Rockwall and Kaufman counties. It is located on mile west of Rockwall on the East Fork of the Trinity River. It has a maximum depth of 40 feet. The lake records are 14.10 lbs for largemouth and 2.11 lbs for smallmouth bass. There is no current lake record for spotted bass. The state records for each species are 18.28 lbs for largemouth 7.93 lbs for smallmouth, and 5.90 lbs for spotted bass. This event is hosted by the City of Garland Parks and Recreation Department with the last day to accept the invitation is September 26, 2013.
The field will consist of the top twelve anglers in both the professional and co-angler divisions plus one wild card berth from each division, and two in each division from the Red River Wildcard Tournament. All told, a minimum of a fifteen angler field will be competing in this event for championship title, cash and prizes. Unlike other events during 2013, this event will have anglers competing for three days and is a no entry fee event. Each of the three days anglers are competing to bring in the heaviest stringer for their respective divisions. Five for professionals and three for amateurs each day of the competition looking for the highest cumulative three day total weight. The angler with the largest three day weight will be crowned the second Lady Bass Classic Champion!. One angler in each division will also be awarded a cash prize for the biggest bass of the tournament. Cash payouts in each division will be paid to anglers competing in the tournament.
Lake Ray Hubbard is a City of Dallas Water Utilities body of water. There are no camping areas around Lake Ray Hubbard. You'll find just two parks on the lake shore, Robertson Park, which is operated by the City of Dallas, and Paul Jones Park, which is operated by the City of Garland. Robertson Park has two boat launch ramps with a total of six lanes, and launching is free. The park is open throughout the year. The Paul Jones Park is also open throughout the year and has four lanes of free boat ramps. You'll find other marinas and clubs with private boat ramps around the lake shore, most of them charging for launching a boat. Robertson is the designated launch site for the event with the weigh-in each day of the pro/am event will take place at Bass Pro Shops Garland.
