Our History

Established 2014 by Arkansas Bass Team Trail, LLC ABTT offers a one of a kind tournament experience for all amateur anglers.


Every event is conducted by tournament fishermen, treating each angler as one of us, trying to give you what we have always wanted.  Our mission is to give you, the angler, the best of the best. With our $250 entry fee, you get the opportunity for a $10,000 dollar first place prize. We are the first to offer this in the state.


Welcome 2020 from ABTT

The owners and staff of ABTT would like to welcome everyone to the 2020 season!  We are looking forward to getting our sixth year of ABTT kicked off!  We have 6 fantastic years and we are looking forward to this year being the biggest and best ever.  We have continually made changes each, and every year and this year is no exception! We are continuing our regular season ABTT events that we have operated in the past. We have been working hard with our sponsors over the last few months to give our anglers added value when you become a member of ABTT. We are proud to announce that as you sign up and pay your membership this year you will be eligible for a 10% discount at Academy on the week prior to our events, 10%+ at Get Outdoors, as in the past Battery Outfitters has special pricing in there NLR Store, also proud to announce VIP pricing at Arego’s Guns in Hot Springs. We will have everyone a membership card printed and distributed at the first event of the year! We are in negotiations with other partners to bring even more values throughout the year.


We are also excited to be offering a new opportunity this year. Our new trail called Vision 2020 will be a new venture that will allow anglers who want to compete on a higher level the opportunity. These events will be $1,000 entry fee and will feature a limited 75 boat field. First Place will be an unprecedented $25,000 payout. We will be paying the top 10 places, and prizes through 15th. With only a 75 boat field your odds increase to bring home a bigger payday. Being an ABTT member for at least three years will enable you the first crack at getting you spot reserved in these events, when registration begins on February 1st. After two weeks for our members to sign up, we will open registration to the public if we are not full.


Along with this new opportunity we will still be operating our Premier Championship event on our regular ABTT trail where we will be awarding another fantastic Bass Cat boat for 1st prize. To qualify for this all, you have to do is pay for all 5 regular season events and fish at least 3 of those events. Bass Elite Series and FLW Tour Pros are not eligible to fish regular ABTT events. 


We have spent time this off season trying to make a schedule that would be diverse and challenging at some different times of the year than in the past. We know every year we have new winners at different lakes, and we feel that will happen again this year!
We are pleased to announce that we have many of our loyal sponsors back again with us this year! Bass Cat boats, Mercury Motors, Costa Sunglasses, Frogg Toggs, Bobs Machine shop, Academy Sports, Get Outdoors, Heartland Automotive, Gruv Fishing, Farmers Insurance, Arego’s Guns, Diamond Lakes Region. At the end of the day without the support of these companies our trail would not be a success.


Also, our host cities have continued to be an integral part of making our events a success. We have formed such great friendships with community leaders that recognize the value that our anglers bring to their communities.  So a special thanks to Caddo Valley, Hot Springs, North Little Rock, Heber Springs, Murfreesboro, Morrilton, and Harrison.
