Temiskaming Smallmouth Bass Series NEW Tournament Dates and Rules
Jim Krech will be the new Tournament Director for the Temiskaming Smallmouth Bass Series in 2019. Jim with the help of myself
and some of the Board of Directors will be taking the Series in a new direction, hopfully to improve the Series,
and as I know from experance this will be a learning experiance for them.
This year the Tournaments will be one day events on a weekend, so that you the anglers can still have one day that weekend
to spend with family.
This year the entry fee will be $200 per team so that anglers can have a better pay back at the events. This is not a big increase
compaired to most Tournaments, and we will be talking to anglers over the year to see how this effects them.
Also NEW for 2019 will be a trikel start, which will eliminate any chance of someone getting hurt at blast off.
I know the new costs can be alot for some teams such as Family teams, wife,daughter,son, grandkids so I will be talking to everyone
about this and see if we can arrange a few Tournaments just for them. Please note we need imput on this issue from you the anglers.
I will need to find out more about Angler of Year and different things and will let you know as soon as I find out but will give you Dates
I know about now so you can start planing your year fishing.

just 2 events.
