OUR 2024 TOURNAMENT SCHEDULE IS NOW AVAILABLE
To our anglers: I want to personally thank you for being a part of the 2023 Eastern NC Bass Challenge. Our trail continues to grow for 1 reason only, you! 2023 featured our highest turn outs, biggest paybacks, and best sponsors in our 9 year history. 2024 will be our 10 Year Annivesary and with your help, we'll continue to grow into the biggest and best trail in North Carolina. Again, thank you and we'll see you in 2024! ~ Jeffrey Davis
Did you know that our 2023 End-of-Year Championship could have a total 1st place prize payout of up to $4,000?! We've never paid back that much at any of our Championships but this year we're holding back a small amount from each event and putting that money straight into our Championship fund. You don't want to miss this years Championship. Anglers must fish 3 regular season events this year to be eligible.
Did you know that we've partnered with the Collins, Inc. Boat Dealership in Smithfield, NC? Collins has helped us obtain some of the best contingency prizes in the fishing industry so we can reward our anglers more than ever. The Bass Challenge team is also helping with the Collins Bass for Cash Tournament Series so you may find some familiar faces at some of the Collins Bass for Cash tournaments.
Did you know that our Super 6 Points Championship will reward cash prizes to the top 6 teams in our point standings? That includes a $1,500 1st Place prize! Our Super 6 Points Championship is sponsored by EL Jones Development and has become a very popular add-on in recent years.
