When the Bassmaster Elite Series made its Sabine River debut in 2013, no one realized how successful the professional bass fishing tournament would be for the city of Orange.

Bass pro Todd Faircloth of Jasper holds up the trophy.

The Sabine River on the Texas/Louisiana border was the scene of some serious bass fishing this past weekend, and in the end Jasper bass fishing pro Todd Faircloth won with a four-day total of 49 pounds, 6 ounces and took home a $100,000 check. He bested second-place finisher Dean Rojas by 6 pounds, 10 ounces.
