The Southeast Texas High School Fishing Association has cancelled its Feb. 9 Tournament headquartered out of Umphrey Family Pavilion. The Association cited the lack of usable boat ramps at Lake Sam Rayburn as the reason for the tournament cancellation. Unlike its January event that was cancelled and rescheduled to April 14, the Feb. 9 tournament will not be rescheduled.


Southeast Texas High School Fishing Association has four remaining events on the season schedule: Feb. 23 at Toledo Bend, March 16 at Sam Rayburn and the back-to-back tournaments, at Rayburn, April 13-14 caused by the intial tournament rescheduling.


"Rest assured that SETX will have a tournament at some point this season and that the board is doing everything possible to get our kids on the water safely in 2019," the Association said in a press release. "We are all looking forward to Toledo on Feb. 23 and hope that everyone will be patient."
