The Bassmater Elite is on Lake Travis middle of may.
Is it a worth while experience to be there ???

Are their different vendors set up?
Do they have seminars by the pros ?

IMO, any Elite event is worth it, especially if it's near you, why not ?

Not a huge amount of vendors but a few. Demo rides available. Berkeley always has a pretty big set up. I like watching the first 2 days take-off about as much as anything, that's when you see the game faces. And Swindle is worth going to the weigh in every day he's fishing.

This will be the Toyota Texas Bassfest which used to be the Toyota Texas Bass Classic. There will be a TON of vendors. A bunch of cool TPWD exhibits and activities, as this tournament continues to raise funds for TPWD. Good concerts, too.

Near Austin too, it'll be a party environment, everything I've been to down there has been.. I'd really like to go, more than likely can't, but I bet it's fun...

I don't see anything about a concert this year. They may have dropped the concert when BASS picked up the event.

You are correct LFG. Guess they dropped the concerts after the fiasco in Frisco.

If you've never attended one of their events its definitely worth checking out. Bassfest always has a great set up for the fans.

If Ray Scott was the emcee I'd be going for sure. Without a doubt a show unto himself. The man is an entertainer.

Though not as well known now as the TV show Major League Fishing the Texas Bass Fest predates MLF in using in boat judges where they catch weigh and release the fish on the spot. Therefor everything they catch over a set mininium counts.

In 2014 Keith Combs broke the record with 110 lb. at Lake Fork.

I am not sure just because you might want to fish this tournament it is open to anyone with money in hand.

Only the top 5 fish count each day toward their weight. Also only BASS Elite Pros in it now.

I think it is worth going if you are a fan like me. The last two times they were around DFW it was so hot and they had all the activities on asphalt. The heat ruined it for me.
But yes go if you can.
