WON Bass Membership:
Won Bass memberships are no longer required to fish our team events. In order to fish and qualify for the year end payouts, you must be a paid subscriber to Western Outdoor News. If your subscription ends prior to the end of the season, you will be required to renew your subscription to be qualified for the reserve fund payouts. Your subscription must be valid during the entire season. Each subscription delivered has a term date on it, so that you can see when your subscription renewal is due. You may sign up for subscriptions online.
Qualifications for Angler of the Year:
The team accumulating the most points in their respective 7 regional events calendar will earn Regional Anglers-of-The-Year. Regions AOY’s will be based on all 7 events. There will be no throw outs for AOY. All AOY awards will only be awarded at the regional TOC events. AOY’s will earn year-end sponsored prize packages. Won Bass no longer offers comps for regional AOY’s or Staff boats. Comp certificates will only be reserved for Club AOY’s.
2012 – 2013 Won Bass Toc information:
Won Bass will no longer be offering Regional TOC’s for the 2012 – 2013 Team Season. Each Team’s region will offer 7 events. Each event will have a reserve pool created for payback at the final 7th event of the season at each region. Each 7th event TOC in each region will award reserve money only for that particular region. For every event that you enter in each region, you will be entered into the TOC reserve pool for that event. The more events you fish, the more reserve pools you will qualify to fish for at the year-end event. The 7th events at each region will be an entry event as well, and have regular paybacks at that event. The more you fish, the more you can win.
Regional Directors are requested to take every step possible to assist a solo fisherman to find a partner in the event that a team member cannot fish. Your replacement angler cannot earn the tournament points. Points are only awarded to the original team roster. Should a replacement not be available, the fisherman may fish solo, but they can only have 3 solo events throughout the season in any single region offering 7 events. A team must fish a total of 4 events as a team (2 people) to qualify for the year-end TOC as a team. Solo anglers may be subject to FULL boat inspection, and or placed with an observer at tournament staff discretion. Solo anglers may participate throughout the season, but may not add a team partner for the final event, unless they have fished at least 4 events together as a team..
