TABC State Tournament

Filed under: Miscellaneous — Carolyn Whiteside @ 7:06 pm

The Texas Association of Bass Club’s (TABC) state championship tournament held on Stillhouse Hollow Lake and Lake Belton on September 10-11 provided a different format for my photography. As my husband Bobby launched the boat on Saturday morning, I hurriedly got my camera ready to get a picture of the sunrise that was unfolding. What a beautiful beginning to the weekend!

Looking for fishermen who were actually “catching” was a challenge. Also, photographing with the hazy conditions and using full zoom increased the difficulty of actually getting a good shot with the rocking action of the boat. It was fun getting an overview of how everyone was progressing in the tournament and then to see the teams as they arrived for weigh-in at the Bell County Convention Center each day.

The tournament is an annual event and was sponsored this year by the Belton Chamber of Commerce, Marine Outlet and Legend Boats, Tempest Rods, Waypoint Marine, and Travis Boating Center.
