2076933The Texas Team Trail ended its season on Lake Amistad this past weekend with an exciting finish.

The event featured 55 of the top teams of the season with the championship and Team of the Year titles on the line. 

The winners of the event were Lendell Martin and Jason Moore with their two-day total of 35.66 pounds. The win netted the two anglers  a payday of $46,880. 

Ranger Boat dealer Jim Criswell and his wife Gail Criswell took second place, winning a Ranger Z119 with a Mercury motor valued at $34,000. The fish for the duo came on top-water, jigs and crankbaits.

Big bass honors and the $275 award went to the team of Seth Kelm and Dee Trammell for their 9.66-pound giant. 

Teams qualified for the championship event by entering and fishing every event held this year. When the dust settled, Russell Cecil and Todd Castledine won the Lucas Oil Team of the Year rings. For their efforts, the duo will have entry fees paid for 2013. The team placed third in the final event, earning them $2,292. 

“The Cabela’s Texas Team Trail was really fun to watch this year,” said Bart Schad of Texas Team Trail. “We are proud of the way all anglers embraced this new team trail, and we are very grateful for their participation and efforts. The entire staff looks forward to seeing everyone in the upcoming year.”
