How To Reel In The Cash Bass Fishing

Aug 17, 2007
Are you a fisherman who has lately become intoxicated by the sport of bass fishing? Perhaps you are looking for some local bass tournaments you can enter to try your hand at competition and see what sort of prizes you can get for simply doing something you love. The tournaments are held in hundreds of locations throughout the nation, some annually and others more frequently. Take a look at some of the tournaments below to see what you might find in your area.

Angler Sport hosts more than 300 bass tournaments every year in over 30 states, meaning that there are multiple options every weekend for the competitive angler. Check into the various places near you where a tournament may be scheduled by this association. Two of the leading states for tournaments are Oklahoma and Texas. Anglers Quest hosts tournaments for teams, couples, and pro-ams (sponsored amateurs who have ranked in tournaments previously). Outdoor Adventure Series designs tournaments specifically for amateurs to get their feet wet. BassChamps and Bass n Bucks are other sponsors and advocates of competitive Texas bass fishing. The Ignition Bass tournament trail is also a popular bass fishing competition in the Lone Star State. In Oklahoma, you'll find more competitions held by groups like Always Bassin' and Charger Fisherman's Choice.

For more regional tournaments that affect several states, look to American Bass, with competitions for the Western United States, or the American Bass Fishing Club, with over 15 districts nationwide. The largest team bass fishing tournament trail in the country is the Angler's Choice Tournament Trails, with multiple locations and more entries than any other sport competition. BAO Outdoors also offers a team trail, with teams of two competing for the largest overall catch (measured in pounds, not quantity).

Even Canada has its bass tournaments, with competitions such as the Bassmania Tournament Trail in Ontario drawing hundreds of entries at each event. In Florida, you have more large team events, including the Florida Bass Team Tournament Trail, and Florida Bass Anglers holds an open tournament monthly on Lake Kissimmee for those wishing to try their hand at competition before turning pro-am.

FLW Outdoors sponsors an incredible number of different tournaments in varying locations. The EverStart Series is a divisional tournament divided into Eastern, Central, and Northern, leading to qualification for the Wal-Mart FLW Tour, a nationwide event. They also sponsor state events, like the Texas Tournament Trail.
