SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Registration for the first event of the 2019 California B.A.S.S. Nation series is now open. The link to register is

The new season introduces a new format for the California B.A.S.S. Nation trail. Whereas previous seasons have allowed only California B.A.S.S. Nation members to compete, the 2019 series will allow competitors to fish without being a B.A.S.S. Nation member. However, the California B.A.S.S. Nation still requires membership in one of its affiliated clubs in order to compete for a position on the State Team.

Each boater is encouraged to sign up with a nonboater to create an even field in each division. Each day of competition will yield a cash prize to the boater and nonboater (paired by daily draw) who bring in the heaviest combined weight. In addition, the California B.A.S.S. Nation will pay a cash prize to the angler in each division who catches the biggest bass of the tournament. All tournaments are two-day events.

Another change for the 2019 series is that all spots on the California B.A.S.S. Nation State Team will be determined by points, based on a competitor’s best three tournaments. Winners of individual tournaments will no longer automatically qualify for the State Team. Competitors who want to compete for the State Team must be members of a B.A.S.S. Nation-affiliated club at the time of entry. See the full rules here:
