Welcome 2017 from ABBT
The owners and staff of ABTT would like to welcome everyone to the 2017 season! We are looking forward to getting the fourth year of ABTT kicked off! We have enjoyed 3 fantastic years and are looking forward to this year being the biggest and best ever. We have made changes each and every year as we have listened to what the anglers have wanted, and tried to adjust and adapt as we tackle each New Year. This year we are bringing back some things that have worked the best in past. We will be allowing umbrella rigs this year, with no restrictions from our standpoint state law will apply. We will again place tournament waters OFF –LIMITS Sunday at Midnight until daybreak on the Saturday of our events. To encourage more growth we will be allowing any anglers who meet our participation requirements to compete in any regular season event they choose, regardless of home waters.
Our Championship, which is our Premier event will be comprised of those anglers who fish 4 out 6 qualifying events. Points champions will be determined by the 4 regular season events only. Bass Elite Series and FLW Tour Pro anglers are not eligible to fish our events until they have been out one full season.
Entry fees are due on the Monday by 6 P.M. prior to the Saturday tournament. Any entries received after 6 P.M. will be assessed a $25.00 late fee. Membership is $60 per person or $120 per team. Entry fee for regular season events and Opens will be $250.00 for adults, and $150 for an Adult/Junior team (One team member under 18).
We worked on many different scenarios for this year’s schedule. We felt like it was time to change our dates and lakes up a little bit to further test all our anglers. We know we cannot control the weather, but our schedule lends itself to being at some great lakes and rivers at some prime times! We know that our anglers are the cream of the crop in Arkansas, and we believe we will have some new records set this year!
We have assembled a great line up of sponsors over these first three years. The Crain Team has continued to grow right along with us and could not have a better bunch to work with! Also joining our lineup this year is BassCat Boats, a recognized leader in the bass boat industry for many years, and we look forward to their participation. Costa Sunglasses will again be a part of each and every event, along with many others such as: Power Pole, Bob’s Machine Shop, T/H Marine, Phenix Rods, BubbaChest, Frogg Toggs, Bear State Bank.
We have several host cities that have helped make this year possible. Special thanks to the city of Caddo Valley, along with the city of Greers Ferry, and North Little Rock each have shown a deep appreciation to us for bringing our events back to their communities.
