Toyota Texas Bass Classic will return to Lake Fork in 2014

Toyota Texas Bass Classic Release:

ATHENS—Toyota Texas Bass Classic (TTBC) officials have announced that this year's World Championship of Bass Fishing is scheduled for Oct. 4-6, 2013 at Lake Conroe.

 After five years at Conroe, the 2014 TTBC will return to Lake Fork, the inaugural host site, on May 9-11, 2014.

In another major change, anglers will qualify for both the 2013 and 2014 TTBC during the 2013 Angler of the Year races in the Bassmaster Elite Series, Walmart FLW Tour and Bass Pro Shops PAA Tournament Series. Four sponsor exemptions and the prior year champion will complete the field.

Failing to qualify for the 2013 TTBC would eliminate an angler from the tournament until 2015.

"With having double event qualification, it makes each and every point available on each respective Tour that much more valuable," Tournament Director Lenny Francoeur said. "Anglers who compete at TTBC are the best of the best, and to come here and win is truly something special. Earning the chance to compete in the event twice in one season is something we know will give the anglers extra motivation for this year."

    Adrian Peterson Day will have a different feel to it this year for a couple reasons. The 11th annual event to honor the East Texan is taking place in Peterson's hometown of Palestine on Saturday, but there will not be a parade like normal. Also, for the first time, the running back won't be pumping up his upcoming season with the Vikings.
