American Bass has been supporting West Coast bass anglers since 1983!!! We are the oldest organization supporting Team Tournaments in the West. There have been a lot of changes over the years with anglers wanting the entry fees raised for a chance to win more money, and the paybacks deeper so that more teams would get a check, etc. In 2017 will be maintaining the 2016 basic entry fee of $135 per team. This entry fee is designed to make
"Fish for the Best CASH Paybacks and the best prizes in the West!"
What Are American Bass "TEAM" Tournaments?
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
