First Minn Kota habitat restoration project of 2024 focuses on bass recovery zones on Sam Rayburn

As the Bass Pro Tour season began with B&W Trailer Hitches Stage One Presented by Power-Pole on Toledo Bend on Jan. 30, Group B anglers Greg Vinson and Brent Chapman joined Texas Parks and Wildlife biologists and Tackle Warehouse Invitationals angler Kyle Cortiana to complete the first MLF Fisheries Management Division Minn Kota habitat restoration project of 2024 on Sam Rayburn Reservoir. The project was supported by Kubota Tractor Corporation and featured MossBack Artificial Habitat.

The volunteers constructed eight 60-inch Conservation Cubes, a dozen 60-inch Safe Haven XL’s, and four John Godwin Crappie Towers. They were deployed in four areas using TPWD’s state-of-the-art habitat barge to create bass recovery zones. Hammer Equipment of Jasper, Texas, supplied a B3350HSD Kubota tractor to aid the volunteers in loading the habitat onto the barge, while Lowe’s Home Improvement of Jasper (Store #1769) provided cinder blocks to weigh down each of the MossBack Habitats.
