American Bass “TEAM TOURNAMENTS” ...
The Biggest Team Circuit Ever In The Western U.S.!!!
"Fish for the Best CASH Paybacks and the best prizes in the West!"

What Are 
American Bass 

American Bass "Team Tournaments" are competitive Bass fishing events that are open to all American Bass members. Each team consists of two American Bass members. (It is permissible for one member to fish alone if they do not have a partner or if their partner can not attend the event). American Bass has many special "Category" teams, most of these are family oriented such as Father/Son, Father/Daughter, Brother/Sister etc. Call American Bass for details. Each team is fishing for their best 5 Bass limit (unless the lake limit is less than 5 Bass). All fishing must be done from a boat, one team per boat. Each boat must be equipped with an aerated livewell (a large ice chest with a battery powered aerator may do, call for details). Only artificial lures may be used. 
At weigh-in time each team brings in their fish. The Bass are weighed and released. After the weigh-in is complete, there are lots of prizes given away and the CASH and awards are presented!
The reward for fishing the entire season is the chance to qualify for one of the American Bass Team Classics! Fish 5 qualifying events in a single season to receive an invitation to fish one of the Team Classics of your choice.  Fish 6 qualifying events in a single season to receive an invitation to fish all 3 Team Classics!  These are the richest Team Events in the entire Western United States!

The American Bass 
Team Tournament Trail

ANY 2 AMERICAN BASS MEMBERS CAN FISH TOGETHER AS A TEAM! Fish any region or fish the "Travelers" region in any of our 3 Divisions to qualify for one or more of the "American Bass Team Classic Fishoffs". There are NO substitution of partners.  You may fish events by yourself to earn points for a team but if you fish with a different partner, you are earning points for that new team.  Your best 5 out of 6 events count for qualifying for the American Bass Team Classics. Each team must fish a minimum of 5 events in any one region or through Travelers to qualify for one Team Classic invitation.  If you fish at least 6 events in a single season, you will receive an invitation to compete in all 3 Team Classics.

'American Bass TRAVELER'S Region!
The Ultimate Team Circuit!
The "American Bass Travelers" region allows you to put together your own schedule! Now you can fish the lakes you want to fish when you want to fish them. This is also the ideal division for anglers who's schedules make it difficult to participate in just one region. This is also ideal for anglers who want to participate in more tournaments. Here's how it works: Fish American Bass “Team Tournament” events in 2 or more “Regions” in any one “Division” (North, Northwest or South) during any season. We will total up your points from your BEST 5 finishes from the season. A maximum of 3 events from any single region will be counted. 100 points will be awarded for first place at each event with 10 or more teams competing.  Only 90 points will be awarded for first place with 9 or less teams competing in any event.  10 Participation points will be awarded at each event to each participating team.  All events that a team participates in will count towards the 5 event minimum but the “points total” will be limited to only allow a maximum of 3 events from a single region.  Any team competing in more than 3 events on the same body of water for Traveler’s will receive points based on a 90 point scale for a 4th or 5th event on that same water.  This occurs when more than one region shares common waters.  Just because you are competing in the Traveler's region, you CAN fish all 6 of the events in any one region, only the best 3 points earning finishes will be counted for Traveler’s points totals.  Fish 5 qualifying events in a single season to receive an invitation to fish one of the Team Classics of your choice.  Fish 6 qualifying events in a single season to receive an invitation to fish all 3 Team Classics!
Example: If you fish 7 different "American Bass Team Tournaments" in the South Division during a season and your best finishes were 2 events in the So Cal Region, 1 event in the Inland Empire Region and 1 event in the San Diego Region and 1 event in the Nevada Region, those would be the points totaled up for your "American Bass Travelers" region total. You will still keep your points in each region also. The "Anglers of the Year" for Travelers will be determined by the most total points from 5 events. There are separate "Travelers" Regions for the North, Northwest and South Divisions. Many anglers consider the "Traveler's Region Anglers of the Year" title in American Bass to be the Ultimate Prize for Team Anglers in the West! If you need additional info please call American Bass at (714) 423-4532.
