TuffMan is the original fall and winter bass tournament trail. This will be our 20th season of promoting fall and winter bass fishing.

The championship is a two day event with the first day on Lake Belton and the second day on Lake Stillhouse. The dates for the championship are January 25th and 26th, 2020, with the weigh-in at the Bell County Expo during the Central Texas Boat Show.
