New Braunfels, Texas is well-known for numerous attractions such as Schlitterbahn, tubing the Comal or Guadalupe Rivers, and the annual Wurstfest. It is also known as the hometown of the defending champion of the Big Bass Splash Fall Shootout.

William DeWare weighed in a largemouth that tipped the scales at 10.84.  No other angler even came close to matching that fish.  The 2nd place overall bass weighed two pounds less. DeWare's winnings included a Nitro Z19 Bass Boat powered by Mercury, equipped with Minn Kota, Lowrance, Navionics & Power Pole, plus $5,000 cash to go along with the $2,000 he scored as an hourly winner.
