Last Saturday October 15th, the American Cancer Society in association with the Ray Hubbard Bass Club held the First Annual Fish For A Cure Tournament on Lake Ray Hubbard. This was a benefit tournament to raise money for the American Cancer Society. Months of planning all came together on Saturday and we were rewarded when 62 boats came out to fish with us! The weather was very warm and the wind blew hard all day and that can make moving around difficult on Mother Hubbard. The reports were a lot of small fish caught but keepers were much harder to find. When we settled up at the end of the day, the team of Brian Fox and Wes Price took home the $3000.00 dollar first prize with a five fish limit weighing 18.68 pounds! The $500.00 big bass prize went to the team of Garrett Macias and Bobby Finta with a 6.64 toad. Here are full results and pictures from the day.
The weigh in area was decorated for the occasion
Scott gauges how many tanks he needs by the number of boats entered. We were happy to see so many.
The life of a TD when the boats are on the water consists of a lot of waiting. Scott Gordon brought his entire first class operation out to Bass Pro Shops in Garland for our event. Thank you Scott!
The wonderful folks from Texas Nameplate set up a booth to showcase their products which include standard and custom measuring boards, and custom graph mounts among many other things. Check them out!

First to the scales was RHBC VP Preston Smith.
A long tough day on the water yielded one keeper.
Keepers were scarce for a lot of people on Saturday.
