Bass Match: A new way to fish bass tournaments in 2007

Recommended Posts

We are currently looking for bass anglers for the 2007 season. As of right now we have divisions in Minnesota, Arizona and Tennessee. We are not limited to just these states. We can start a division in your state and near you. Our format is the perfect way to get into bass tournaments without paying large entry fees.

Here is how it works:

Once you join Bass Match we put you in a division close to where you live. You will be notified by email when the schedules have been set. You will then contact (telephone or email) your opponent and set up a time for your match. Things to discuss will be the time, date, and where your match will be held. You have to complete your match before the divisional tournament. Once you complete your match log on to www.bassmatch.com and fill out your match report. Contact your next pairing and set up your next match. You can also fish your matches any time before the divisional tournament. Once everyone in your division finishes their matches we will compile the points to see who will be invited to the State T.O.C.

The Fees:

The Fees are $100 for five matches, which is only $20 per match. The entry fees in your division stay in your division and are paid out after the division tournament. If you qualify for the state tournament the entry fee for the state tournament is $40 plus a $10 big bass pot option. Fees can be paid online via your Pay Pal account or by sending a check.

State or Division Directors:

We are also looking for State and Division Directors to help run divisions. State and Division Directors are able to fish in the matches for free and get an automatic invitation to their state tournament. Please contact us for more details on how to become a director in your area.

For all details and rules check us out at www.bassmatch.com or email your questions to us at [email protected] or [email protected]

Keep the entries coming! I know it's tough to get motivated with three feet of snow on the ground! laugh.gif

We have 22 and growing. I figure everyone will finally get motivated in the next month or so when the snow is off the ground.

Do you have to have a boat, or can you be a non boater co-angler??

Any more guys in the cities interested? We only need a couple of more guys to get that division up and going. The NW metro division is doing well, and we would like to have a few more guys from St. Cloud as well. smile.gif

It would be nice if you could get signed up before the 20th, since the dues are supposed to be sent to us by then. smile.gif We need to set up the schedule soon so we can get going. Last year, we had quite a few last minute folks sign up.

could there be a far drive for these events? I'm in the metro area, could a drive to the great north be expected?

Hi Bobby,

We are going to set the matches as close as possible. It looks like we are going to make one big division for the metro, west metro and st. cloud. We have a few in each, so you should not have to go far.

Let me know if you have any more questions! smile.gif

    • I have another weekend in me to fish and fight the winds and weather and then the boat will be done for the year.  Guess it is that time of the season but would really love to get another couple outings in but such is life! 
    • who uses flashers now days haha; I'm a helix convert now too, i was hesitant at first as the Lowrance had a LCD screen a few years ago for ice fishing but the lag was unusable, but hbird figured it out. Mapping, flasher screen if wanted, and sonar all in one, its like a smartphone; everything in one.   also, I have not had any interference issues with others using the helix, especially with all of hte chirp setttings
    • Looks like a good time 
    • I love my Helix unit also, and GPS has been a game changer for me. No more fumbling with my phone in the cold with apps eating my battery and trying to keep it out of the elements.    I miss the simplicity of my Marcum VX-1 but after getting my Helix dialed in I have no complaints.
    • SD resident opener was a wet one. Saturday I didn't go out. Sunday morning woke up with 4.5" inches of snow at my place a few miles south of Sioux Falls. Never would I have imagined we would be able to hunt in snow this early! The other odd part is that none of the weather people even hinted at any accumulation or even predicted any chance of precip. It literally just came out of nowhere.   Yesterday I hunted the entire day from noon to sundown and was fortunate enough to still have some snow stick around in areas.. My only summary is swamp country. I wore the wrong boots, wrong pants etc. Should have just wore waders would have been able access things better. My biggest mistake was not going far enough west and not far enough north. But there is a ton of public land where I headed and I hadn't been able to scout that way yet this year. Everything that looked walkable was wet it didnt matter how high or low it was. If it looked good at knee level it very likely had ankle high standing water under it. Ditches were full of water, some roads were underwater it was just wet everywhere and I don't see any signs of any harvesting starting any time soon. The water just made things difficult to walk as some areas I am familiar with. I could walk one side and work it good, but then get land locked because of water and have no way of getting to the other sides and ended up back tracking and walking a lot of same areas twice  which usually isnt productive.   I only managed 1 bird all day. I missed 1 bird my first walk probably at 12:01pm right after getting out of the truck. Just was slow to get the gun up and was way behind it. Typically early season lull, I think I just stared at the bird before I even realized I should be trying to shoot it. I downed another bird early afternoon and I knew it wasn't hit hard. Made a good mark on it and then my dog got a good track and pinned it down. As I went to grab it with my hand the dog released and the bird took off like a bat out of hell and we never were able to recover it because of all of the water. As soon as I put my hand on it, it just exploded and was gone. Was just an odd scenario.   Saw a few other hens but otherwise a very very slow day. I had spotted a bunch of birds coming out of some CRP earlier in the day that headed for corn. I came back an hour before sundown and hunkered down hopefully to get some pokes at them during the golden hour and they never showed up. I know the birds are around but all the crops in makes it difficult to hunt during the day.   I dont know what to suggest for people coming for the big opener this weekend. Its going to be difficult with so many crops in. I would say anywhere north of HWY 14 should be a little drier in areas but they have still seen some moisture the last couple weeks. Up near Brown county they are basically in a drought and down in the south eastern part of the state we are breaking yearly precipitation records. Harvest is off to a slow start all over. I know this weekend is the big opener everyone gets fired up for but if it were me I would be coming back for late season hunts and skip the circus this weekend.   I wont be hitting it hard any time soon will probably just stick to some sundown hunts closer to home for now. I have some gopro footage I need to get edited from yesterday got alot of good stuff on video including the bird that got away.   Good luck to those heading out this weekend!
    • I'd like to see how the Helix handles interference.   Interference was the reason I went from my Interphase Video to a flasher. Currently using HBird Ice 45 and MarCum LX5.
    • I put all the boats put away,  subsequently the rain stopped.  I'll take that and finish pulling the dock in.
    • Posting.  Cuz I can’t sleep worth a dump.  Gonna be a MEA yahoo for most the rest of the week.  I’ve heard good reports from the friends that are already out there. They took the whole week so I’m driving myself out Tuesday night.     Just getting the the back of the truck filled with dekes got me too revved up.  Gonna be hard packing anything else besides waders, layout blind, guns and shells!  Who needs food and more than one change of clothes for 5 days anyway?!
    • I was ALMOST headed to Ely as well but opted to stick to “productive” pursuits at home, figuring I probably missed the October window this year.  That only lasted a day though before I headed west.   It looked really cool though.  Quiet too I bet.
    • I have a couple LX5s and have been very happy with them.  I had to get a second one for the wheelhouse since after I set it up for the wife, I usually go out hole hopping my original one.  Then come back with fish only cuz I was using the “cheat mobile”.    With the second one I was able to let her stare at it long enough to figure it out cuz apparently my teaching skills are sub par.  She normally wanted to have the camera down all the time but come dark, it’s kinda hard to see anything.     Who knew a wheelhouse and flasher would change her from a winter hibernator to an ice fishing addict.  She wants to go EVERY weekend now.     Anyone wanna buy a wheelhouse? 😉😂   Just kidding.... but I wish she’d wanna try for lakers every once in a while.
