HomeBassAmerican Bass Anglers 2018 Open Series Tournaments.

This tour offers a $5,000 guaranteed first place at every divisional tournament and at the end of each season the Area Championship offers a $10,000 guaranteed first place. The entry fees remain lower at $200 for boaters and $100 for co-anglers for divisional one-day events.

In 2018, the top ten boaters and top ten co-anglers by points from each division after the Area Championship will automatically advance to the 2019 Ray Scott Championship. In addition, the top five boaters and top five co-anglers by place of finish after the Area Championship who did not qualify by points will advance to the 2019 Ray Scott Championship.

We have experienced tournament crews who run first class events providing a fun experience for ABA members.

New boat buying season is upon us and I wanted to remind you that if you buy a new qualifying Triton Bass Boat with a Mercury Outboard you can get your Open Series Tournament entries paid for. This is done through the ABA Alliance program. It’s a great reward, buy the best bass boat and outboard on the market and get a year’s entry fee sponsorship. If you have questions about this program please don’t hesitate to reach out to ABA, we will be glad to assist you. If you have questions about this program or about Triton Boats or Mercury Marine Outboards feel free to email me at msheehan@americanbassanglers.com

Many of the ABA Sponsors also offer contingency bonus awards programs and we urge you to take advantage of these offers. Each of these programs have requirements so please visit the manufacture’s web site and make sure you are signed up for their program.

Our offices are open Monday – Friday 8 am to 5 pm Central. We have a great Member Services Group at ABA who can assist you with memberships and tournament registration. Also, each of the Tournament Managers are easily accessible as well and we encourage you to reach to ABA anytime you need assistance. Contact information: Office (256)232-0406 and by email info@americanbassanglers.com

Below is the 2018 Schedule of all 18 divisions and I hope you have a wonderful tournament season.
