5. Lake Amistad / Lake Ouachita
The first tournament is located on Lake Amistad. Before you can start the tournament, you need to gain 50 reputation points. You can earn points from any type of fish, so just cruise around the lake switching lures and changing your equipment if you want to until you catch enough fish for the 50 points.
You can also use this time to find the 5 exploration spots for this lake. Buoys help you find the exploration spots. On them, they have red lights, once you find them the lights turn green.
Starting from the dock, head out and curve left under the bridge. Follow the left bank, until you can see another bridge with buoys under it.
Continue around the lake in a clockwise fashion with the shore on your left, until you reach
Continue with the shore on your left for
Keep the shore on your left and you will come to a bay with a dock and a house for
Proceed in the same manner with the shore on your left and you will find this buoy tucked behind a cliff face.
I've found the best place to catch large striped bass is under the bridge near the first exploration point using the default soft plastic lure. This lure may also work on the catfish that are sometimes here. You might want to go to the shop and upgrade your line to some stronger test, but I finished the tournament with the default equipment using the Squirmin' Worm 6” - green pumpkin seed soft plastic lure.
Once you have enough points you'll be asked if you want to continue fishing (choose yes) or proceed to the tournament (choose no). Do what you like but I'm moving forward.
This tournament is for Striped Bass, Largemouth Bass, and Smallmouth Bass only. Use the previously mentioned spot under the bridge straight ahead for some nice fishing. You will keep your five biggest fish. I had 128 lbs. You will receive a warning with 2 minutes left. If you went straight ahead under the bridge you'll need about 20 seconds to get back to the dock. If you went somewhere else, make sure you leave enough time to get back to the nearest dock. Hopefully you finished first and got

If not, you can play any of the tournaments over to try and finish better.
The second tournament is located on Lake Ouachita. You need 60 reputation points to begin the tournament. Just cruise around the lake switching lures and changing your equipment if you want to until you catch enough fish for the 60 points.
From here on out, I'm using 17lb test line with various lures and I'll mention which ones I used and when.
You can also use this time to find the 5 exploration spots for this lake.
Starting from the left, follow the coast on the left. The first one is in an inlet with two trees in the water.
Continue following the beach on the left. You'll run into a dam with stairs heading up on the right side.
Continue around left until you find a covered dock with gas pumps.
Further left to another small dock.
Around and to the left to find the last one at the end of a long channel.
You can use this time to try to find some good fishing holes, so just find some fish and catch them until you have enough reputation points.
Once you have enough points you'll be asked if you want to continue fishing (choose yes) or proceed to the tournament (choose no).
This tournament is for Smallmouth Bass only. Once you start, head straight ahead and veer left around the corner. If you follow the coast you should come to what looks like an L shaped alcove directly ahead and not to far. There should be plenty of fish around the trees. I finished with about 17 lbs and the person in second had only 8 lb, but these numbers vary so just keep on fishing. It takes around 20 seconds to get back to the dock so watch the time. Hopefully you have won
