Aquatic Invasive Species Guidelines

May 8, 2019

The MBA are working with Manitoba Sustainable Development to ensure our water bodies are protected from Aquatic Invasive Species (AIS). Accordingly, Manitoba Fish and Wildlife has provided the AIS open-water checklist for Competitive Fishing Events. All competitive fishing event participants must adhere to Manitoba Fishery Regulations, 1987 and provincial and federal Aquatic Invasive Species (AIS) regulations. We will have hard copies of the AIS checklist available at each event. It is the event participant’s responsibility to ensure they have followed the appropriate guidelines before using their watercraft in a Manitoba water body. We would also ask event participants, as well as other users of our Manitoba water bodies, to review all of the information available on the Government of Manitoba’s website Manitoba.ca/StopAIS to help stop the spread of AIS.

New for this year, we’ve extended our online entry forms requiring payment submissions via Interac E-Transfer to all of our events. Please keep in mind, submitting an online entry form without submitting payment DOES NOT RESERVE A SPOT IN THE EVENT.

MBA Amateur Trail Tournament Series

February 19, 2019

For 2019, the Manitoba Bass Anglers will again be hosting the “MBA Amateur Trail.” This open tournament series allows non-MBA members to participate in the team bass fishing tournaments hosted by the MBA. The series is comprised of the four team tournaments planned for the 2019 season, including the Falcon Lake Bass Classic, the Lac Du Bonnet Bass Championship, the Nutimik Lake Bass Challenge and the Winnipeg River Rumble (refer to the tournament schedule for more details of each event).

A 2019 MBA membership is not required to participate in The MBA Amateur Trail. Instead, a $50 per person entry fee is required to participate (along with the regular tournament entry fees for each event being fished). MBA members are also eligible to join the trail for the same $50 per person fee. Participants in the trail will earn points from each event they fish (participants can fish as many or as few events as they like). Points earned from each participant’s TWO best tournament finishes will be used to determine who qualifies to compete in the final tournament of the season, the Minn Kota Humminbird Tournament of Champions, which is set up as a mostly all expenses paid two-day individual tournament with some great prizes.
