Bischoff Reservoir Division IN-04

January 11, 2021

We have received several inquiries from teams interested in obtaining their 2021 membership cards.  The following are three options for those wishing to obtain their 2021 memberships.

Options to obtain your 2021 memberships:

1. The most convenient (and easiest) option is to go to this website and complete this online. Please allow least ONE WEEK prior to your first tournament you plan fish. Retain your purchase/email confirmation paperwork until you receive your 2021 membership card. There is a slight service charge for this option. Questions and assistance can be obtained by contacting the main office at (812) 276-8043.

2. Mail the completed registration form along with payment to the main office at USA Bassin, P.O. Box 1126, Bedford, IN 47421. Please allow at least TWO WEEKS prior your first tournament. Questions and assistance can be obtained by contacting the main office at (812) 276-8043.

3. Personally contact either Chip or Lisa Ayers via cellular telephone or text. Arrangements can be made to register teams prior to the first tournament.  This should be done at least ONE WEEK prior to the morning of the first tournament.

***Teams must have either 2021 cards or proof of registration/payment prior to entering the first event**

Please don't hesitate to contact either Chip or Lisa with any questions.

God Bless,

Chip & Lisa Ayers

The 2021 Bischoff Reservoir IN-4 Division schedule is posted!

August 9. 2020

Our final tournament of the 2020 Bischoff Reservoir Division season was held August 8th and the bite proved to be a bit off under the post frontal conditions. But, as with any event, somebody always figures them out and the team of Lawson and Smith were no exception on this tough day. Congratulations to all the winners, including the father/son team of Joe and Tom Taulbee for capturing the day's big bass, a 4.78 lunker!

Special thanks go out to Rick Lewis for again sponsoring the event's awards. Be sure to stop for a great meal at the Batesville (IN) Kentucky Fried Chicken/Taco Bell on your next trip to Bischoff Reservoir.. and when you do, tell Rick "THANK YOU"!

The long-time USA Bassin' members Ronnie and Stacey Tuley also locked up the Divisional Championship at the end of the day. The husband and wife team proved consistency matters as they brought fish to the scales in every tournament this season and that included the year's largest bass, a 6.77 lb. giant. Way to go, Tuleys!

Lisa and I would like to sincerely thank each and everyone of our fishermen who joined us this season, whether you fished every event of just a few.

In a year which has seen so many adversities, we appreciate everyone's patience and understanding. Plans are already underway for the 2021 season of the IN-04 Division and we are looking forward to to another great year!

Until then, tight lines..

God Bless,

Lisa & Chip Ayers
