The historic 40th Annual Big Bass Splash on Lake Sam Rayburn is underway. Right now, registrations continue to be taken at the Sealy Outdoors trailer at Umphrey Family Pavilion.

The official scale on the stage is dark right now.


The 6 am hour is not a weigh-in hour, that will begin at 7 am with our first weigh-in hour. But, once those weigh-ins start, the money will start to flow. $1.3 million in guaranteed cash and prizes will be paid out for the tournament wraps up on Sunday afternoon.

Each day, there are 7 weigh-in hours (7 a.m. through 1 p.m.) Fifteen places will be paid to the heaviest bass every hour with the following allotment.

Today's forecast is looking great with partly to mostly cloudy skies and a high around 84. Winds aren't expected to be a factor today. However, a significant cold front will bring stormy weather on Saturday.

Hopefully, most of the rain will threaten late afternoon on Saturday and during the early morning hours on Sunday. You may be wearing shorts today, but hoodies will be the fashion on Sunday with wind chills staying in the 50s.

The 6 am hour is brought to you by Strickland Plumbing and HVAC, where your plumbing, heating, and HVAC needs are strictly their business.
