    This sub forum was created to help our members find/fill a backseat or find a partner for an upcoming tournament.  I get a lot of calls asking if I know anyone that has a backseat open or looking for a partner and unfortunately I can't get to them all on a timely basis.

     

    If you are new to the TTZ community introduce yourself on the forum and give a little history about your angling experience.  It can be awkward getting into the boat with someone for the first time and any bit of info (pics, tournament/fishing experience, etc) will help break the ice.  Also, offering up front to pay the tournament entry fee and/or splitting other expenses goes a long way.    

     

    It's been said that finding a good fishing partner is often harder than finding a good mate...so ask yourself if you would ever go out with a person if they just posted their name and phone number.  

     

    Whether you're a seasoned tournament angler or just starting out and wanting to learn more about tournament fishing (or fishing in general) we are here to help and look forward to meeting some new faces on the water!

    Hello my name is Curt Covey I live in New Braunfels. I'm new to TTZ and have  zero tounament experience. I've been an avid bass angler for 13 years and am looking to get involved with the tounament side. My wife and I bought a ski boat last year and as soon as I can I'm looking to trade for a bass boat. So as of now I guess I'd be looking for a backseat to fill?? (Not sure lol!)

    Hey Curt.  Yeah, you gotta get out of the ski boat man.  Fishing a Thursday Nighters on Dunlap, or the Lake Austin Wed. Night tournament are both a great way to get introduced in to tournament fishing.  

    Seeing as you're in New Braunfels, bring your gear down to the I35 ramp Thursday night and find us at registration.  There are usually 1 or 2 boats that show up that are sometimes in need of a partner and I can introduce you to them and maybe score you a back seat.

    Hello my name is Ethan McQuay. I just moved to Austin recently from Michigan. I have fished tournaments for a few years and fished a few different circuits including West Michigan Bass, Michigan Bass League, ROI, BBT, Weekend Lunkers, ect. My biggest accomplishment was winning the West Michigan Bass classic in 2012. Due to limited space at my current residence I had to leave my boat in Michigan so I would love to fill a backseat if anyone has one available. I am also willing to split entry fee costs.

    I'm Brandon, (Brandon F on ABF)

    I am currently without a boat this year for the first time in almost 20 yrs. I will be looking for a back seat for some Georgetown Tuesday nighters, which I help run (not sure how that will workout without a boat) Wednesday nighters and possibly some Dunlap Thursday nighters. As customary, I will pay the entry and such. Getting better at fishing from the back. Have been know to catch fish and cash a few checks. Fishing TTZ with Greg and not committed to champs so far. 512-626-2441

    Brandon, you can fish some Wednesday nighters with me once we get started up.  I might even be able to convince Alice to let me get out to some Tuesdays as well.  I'll see you at the first TTZ trail event, we can talk more then.

    I fish with Randal on Tuesday's Lake Travis. Other than that I would love to take a back seat on any other tournament if one is open. Just PM me. I'll pay the entry fees.


    PS - Randal and I won the first tourney on Travis the first night we fished together.

    Pretty much new to this site, never fished TTZ before, but want to expand my horizons beyond just club fishing. Have all my own gear, just looking for a boater with available backseat for the 2016 season. Will gladly split all entry fees, fuel, lodging, etc. If you need a partner hit me up please. Thanks in advance.

    Just in case anyone checks in this thread, I sure would love to find Guadapalooza back seat.

    Just found out this morning that my boat/partner from last year has to go out of town this weekend, so I'm looking to backseat for someone. I'll pay gas/entry fees/beverages. Just shoot me a pm. Thanks, Nick.
