"The national viewing audience will have plenty to look forward to from all the on-the-water action with the anglers to the evening weigh-ins," said Tournament Director Lenny Francoeur."The thrill of this year's championship has been captured in every minute. Viewers will be able to be up close and personal with the world's best anglers in the only unifying world championship in the sport of bass fishing."
Powerline Services pro Keith Combs of Texas won the TTBC championship in a sudden-death fish-off against Toyota Trucks pro Mike Iaconelli of New Jersey. After three days, the two were tied with more than 75 pounds and returned to Lake Conroe for the fish-off. Tension mounted as time elapsed and the championship was on the line for the first angler to catch a keeper and verify it with tournament officials.
As the official broadcast partner of the TTBC, Versus will air the championship in three parts (tape-delayed) with two 30-minute episodes for the first and second days of fishing and a one-hour special for the final day. The official broadcast schedule is as follows:
The TTBC field is comprised of the world's best in professional bass fishing.
