The Good Ole Boys Bass Club will be making a change to its tournament format for the 2018 season.  We will be moving to a PRO/AM format.  What does this mean?  There will be two divisions, boaters and non-boaters.  Boaters will be competing against boaters and non-boater competing against non-boaters.  Each angler weighs up to 5 bass for his/her total weight.  We will continue to have pre-tournament draws, pairing a boater with a non boater.  Both divisions will have guaranteed payouts.  It was voted to structure the payout as follows:

If we have 6 or more non-boaters in a tournament:

1st Place Boater –                35% of total purse

1st Place Non-Boater –       25% of total purse

*If Non-Boater has the heaviest 5 fish limit of both divisions, they will be given 35% of total purse and 1st place Boater will be give 25% of total purse*

2nd Place Boater –               20% of total purse

2nd Place Non-Boater –      10% of total purse

3rd Place Boater –                10% of total purse

Big Bass will be awarded to the heaviest bass weighed for the day.


If we have less than 6 non-boaters in a tournament:

We will fall back to paying the first 5 places plus Big Bass

1st Place Angler –                35% of total purse

2nd Place Angler –                25% of total purse

3rd Place Angler –                20% of total purse

4th Place Angler –                10% of total purse

5th Place Angler –                10% of total purse

Big Bass will be awarded to the heaviest bass weighed for the day.
