Divisional Tournaments

The U.S.A. Bassin Team Trail is a team based trail. You are allowed to fish this trail with any current member of U.S.A. Bassin. If you want to fish with someone who isn't a member, that person needs to become a member first. It's a quick and simple process to become a member. Any person that is under the age of 19 before the end of the season is considered a youth and their membership is free.

Team Trail Overview:

  • 10 Tournament Divisions with a  $25.00 Entry Fee have a 70% payback
  • 5 Tournament Divisons with a $50.00 Entry Fee have a 70% payback
  • 5 Tournament Divisions with a $75.00 Entry Fee have a 80% payback
  • Finish the season with 250+ points to qualify for a regional tournament

If you qualify for a regional tournament, you may fish any regional you choose. Finishing in the top 30 percent of a regional tournament qualifies a team to fish either the Ranger Comanche Classic or the Ranger Aluminum Cup, your choice. Teams that finish in the bottom 70 percent qualify to fish only the Ranger Aluminum Cup. Please visit our Championship section to read more detail on those tournaments.

About the Bassmaster Team Championship

Founded in 2014, the Bassmaster Team Championship fields approximately 175 two-angler teams each year. The teams qualify by winning championships or performance points titles on one of dozens of B.A.S.S. sanctioned team tournament circuits. The teams compete for two days to earn the title of top team in the nation. Next, members of the Top 3 teams fish solo for two more days, with the winner of that phase qualifying for the Bassmaster Classic.
