🐟The 40th Annual Big Bass Splash is Coming to Lake Sam Rayburn

🐟$1.3 Million in Cash and Prizes is Guaranteed to be Paid Out

🐟The Grand Prize is Valued at Over $300,000

Starting tomorrow on Lake Sam Rayburn, the Big Bass Splash will be celebrating 40 years of big payouts and big bass. This year, there will be $1,300,000 in guaranteed cash & prizes. The grand prize alone is valued at over $300,000! It's going to be an incredible weekend full of fishing and fun.

What To Expect from the Big Bass Splash

Bob Sealy, the founder of the Big Bass Splash, had a vision for what the tournament would become. After fishing several pro tournaments, he soon came to realize that these types of events weren’t just for the pros. This is when he decided to start his own fishing tournament, one that would cater only to the amateur anglers, allowing them to be put into the same limelight as the pros by winning “BIG CASH & PRIZES” without the huge fees.

Now, 40 years later, THOUSANDS (and that's not an exaggeration) of amateur fisherman will flock to Lake Sam Rayburn seeking fortune and glory. And, while that statement may have a bit of artistic flourish, it's not too far from the truth. The payouts are massive. The competitors are excited. It's going to be a great, great weekend.
