Throughout the history of the Bassmaster Classic, revered as “the” bass fishing tournament, more than 29 bodies of waters have been lucky enough to host it. Now you can add Lake Travis to the list because the city of Jonestown will host the 2018 Bassmaster Elite Series Tournament.
Although this legendary fishing competition has been held in Texas — it’s been at Sam Rayburn Reservoir in East Texas 31 times — this is the first professional-level bass tournament to reach the shores of Lake Travis.
Wondering why our beautiful lake got chosen for the first time in 50 years?
The answer is simple — rain.
