Central Texas Bass Anglers is based out of the Killeen Fort Hood area in Central Texas. The CTBA was established in 1998 to improve the skills of bass anglers through a fellowship program and a friendly exchange of bass fishing techniques and ideas. We meet at 7 PM on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of each month at the Hallmark Lanes in "The 11th Frame Lounge" in Killeen.
The CTBA fishes 12 club tournaments per year. Our tournament schedule includes such lakes as Fayette County, Bastrop, Decker, Belton, Waco and Stillhouse Hollow. We draw partners for club tournaments and allow guests to fish one tournament per year. Our tournament entry fees are $15 with an additional $5 for Big Bass which is optional. We pay 100% back at our club tournaments. Points for the CTBA Top Six, Angler of the Year, and Sportsman of the Year are accumulated from July through June.
Our club dues are $45.00 per year. The dues are used to pay our Top Six Championship, and provide funds for the club's banquet. Beginning in 2002, 45 percent of the club dues are set aside to pay Angler of the Year, Lunker of the Year and Sportsman of the Year award winners.
Central Texas Bass Anglers sponsors a couple of open tournaments on Stillhouse Hollow Reservoir on the 1st Saturday each month. Entry fee for the "Big Bass" tournament is $10 per person, and the entry fee for the "5 Fish" (or 3 fish from June - September) tournament is $20 per team, with an 80 percent pay-back for each tournament. Participants register at the Stillhouse Marina from 5:30 AM to 6:15 AM. Weigh-in is at 12PM.
