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.
Registration for the MBA Amateur Trail can be made in person at the regular monthly MBA meetings, or by filling out THIS FORM and mailing it in.

2019 Tournament Schedule
February 6, 2019
The 2019 tournament schedule has been finalized and there are a couple of changes for this upcoming season. The Kenora Mega Bass event hosted in 2018 has been split into two separate events. Each event will still remain on consecutive days (weekend of August 24 & 25, 2019) however they will be held on different water bodies for the 2019 season. The typical team tournament has been renamed the Winnipeg River Rumble and will be hosted on the Winnipeg River (in Ontario), and the Big Bass Battle will remain on Lake of the Woods. Additionally, the boundaries for the Nutimik Lake Bass Challenge have been extended, including waters above Sturgeon Falls.
Please go to the tournament schedule page for dates and details of each event. Not all tournament details have been finalized so additional information will be added to each tournament page as it becomes available.
