Event Info


Lets Do IT!

You do not want to miss our 2nd visit to one of the premier fisheries in the whole country, Lake Sam Rayburn supported by Marine Mat!

In the final event of the 2023 season, anglers will have the famous and annually Top 10 rated fishery to close out another amazing year!  This fishery is very diverse and offers our anglers a wide variety of fishing opportunities.  The lake offers excellent deep and shallow water fishing with ample brush and vegetation.  While quantity of fish should be plentiful, there is also great opportunity for very large fish and there is a potential Personal Best at the end of any cast!

– Local Dealer Support- There are not any dealers in this exact area so we suggest maintaining and fixing all known issues prior to arrival or stopping at a dealer on the way.

Event HQ– Umphrey Family Pavillion: 5438 Sam Rayburn Parkway Brookeland texas 75931, Brookeland, TX 75931

Anglers are encouraged to bring seating for the brief 30 minute meeting on Friday evening.

We encourage all of our anglers and the folks traveling with them to stay in Jasper, TX.  That is the community that has invested money and effort into brining us to this great fishery. They are only able to recuperate their investment in us, if we support their local establishments.  Please stay and eat in Jasper as much as possible and let them know you are in town for the Hobie BOS Kayak tournament!

A maximum capacity field of 225 or less will be competing for a cash payout to 15% of the field and the top 3 non-qualified anglers will earn their spot in the 2023 Tournament of Champions (TOC) at Lake Chickamauga, Dayton TN Nov 8-10.

35 Anglers will have the opportunity to earn their spot at the TOC once this event is completed through points and auto qualify. Don’t get left out while sitting this one out!

The TOC is a 3-day, 60 angler Championship that saw a $100,000 payout in 2022 and an expected payout of over $80,000 in 2023.

If Maximum capacity is reached, anglers can use the waitlist feature on TourneyX  to get inline if any spots become available.
