    Too early to start talking guadapalooza 2017? In my opinion, I can't get enough talk about the guad song, guad jokes, guadstaches, guad nuggets and guad porn pictures. It's the only bass tournament I fish and had to miss it last year.

    There is a cold front coming and I am thinking about fall fishing!

    I don't know if I'll be able to do it this year, but if I do I'll be looking for a new boat. Had a great partner last year and he moved to Houston. I just have that touch.

    I'll start an official thread here shortly. I'm trying to work out the details on location this year. I'd really like to get back to my roots and run it from Arkansas Bend, but as it stands ABend is still closed for the rebuild. I like to make camping out the night before a big part of the event, so I might go to Pace Bend this year. Still checking things out, will make an announcement soon.

    I did like it at ABend! Pace Bend would be a good second choice in my opinion. Thanks for the update.

    IMHO It's never too early to start talking about the greatest fishing event in Texas....

    Here is the most up to date information!

    As it is every year, the last TTZ event will be Guadapalooza, held on Lake Travis the Saturday before Thanksgiving. This year that will be Saturday, November 18th, and it will be held at Pace Bend Park out on Tournament Point.

    Guadapalooza is a five-fish guadalupe bass only tournament. The event will be held at Pace Bend Park on Lake Travis. We will be at Pace Bend Friday night the 17th for anybody who wants to register early and get signed up. You can launch from any location as long as you come over to PB for the send-off and livewell check.

    Teams will be fishing from first safe light to noon, with a fish fry to follow. Please feel free to keep legal limits of any species of fish that you want to bring to the fish fry. (please no largemouth over 3 pounds for the fish fry, see below about this year's optional largemouth big bass side pot)

    $40 entry fee, maximum of two persons per teams. Guadapalooza is open to all anglers.

    Benefit for Benny Aylor Family

    This year Guadapalooza will also have an optional Big Bass side pot and a BPS merchandise auction to help raise money for the Aylor family. As some of you may know, Benny Aylor a local angler from Round Rock passed away recently. Benny was beloved by many and his passing has brought on some difficult times for those who loved him most. Benny has a lot of friends and fishing club buddies in the community and they have reached out to TTZ to ask us to help out in a couple of ways.

    His friends at Bass Pro Shops have stepped up and donated some merchandise to auction off at weigh in. All proceeds will go to the Aylor family, and we all thank BPS greatly for these kind donations. Please see the bottom of this post for a list of all the items that are being auctioned, and don't forget to bring extra cash to weigh in.

    Additionally, this year Guadapalooza will have an optional Largemouth Big Bass side pot. This will be a $40 buy-in, 50% goes to the Aylor family and 50% will go to the Big Bass pot.
    Again, this is optional, but it's for a great cause and we believe this will add an extra level of excitement to Guadapalooza. It seems like every year we hear stories about somebody catching a 7-pound largemouth. Well, this year you can bring that fish in and win some side pot money all while helping out the Aylor family.

    If you would like to be a sponsor, donate any items for the Aylor Family Benefit Auction, or have questions, please email john.ward@ttz1.com

    Items Donated by BPS for Aylor Family Benefit Auction:

    Two- BPS Johnny Morris Platinum Signature JPT10SHHA Baitcast Reels
    Two- BPS Johnny Morris Carbonlite 2.0 JCT10SHHA Baitcast Reels
    One- BPS 2XLT Pro Qualifier Goretex Jacket
    One- BPS XL Pro Qualifier Goretex Bibs

    As we do every year we will need volunteers to bring supplies and help out with the fish fry. Please sign up on the TTZ FORUM THREAD here:
