American Bass Anglers 2009

Discussion in 'Tournament Discussion' started by ABA Ohio, Jan 10, 2009.

  1. The American Bass Anglers / American Fishing Tour (ABA) has changed the qualifying process for the National Championship Tournament.
    The Old is now the New. The Regional Tournaments have been eliminated.The old qualifying process is now the new qualifying process!
    Fish any and as many of the 1,000 one day tournaments nationwide and any and as many of the 2 day Division Championship tournaments nationwide as you want. Your best 4 one day tournaments and your best 2 day tournament by points will then be counted and the top 500 anglers by points qualify for the National Championship Tournament. If anyone in the top 500 declines the next angler by points advances.
    The 2009 National Championship Tournament will be on Lake Norman, North Carolina. The tentitive date is November 18 - 20, 2009.
