NY The Bass Federation (TBF) is proud to announce the 2014 tournament schedule. Our goal is to provide exciting participation opportunities for anglers at all levels structured under a draw format where boaters are randomly paired with non-boater (co-anglers) for an eight hour tournament day. Each angler competes only in their respective category with boater entry fees of $90 and the co-angler fees are $50 with 80% of all entry fees paid back to the field. NYTBF membership is required for participation unless otherwise stated. For complete details to go www.nytbf.com.

Angler of the Year (AOY)
Anglers compete for valuable AOY points awarded at each Points event on a three point decreasing scale, 1st = 100, 2nd = 97, 3rd = 94… etc. At the end of the Points season the AOY boater and co-angler earn automatic berths onto the NYTBF Eastern Divisional. All anglers that amass a minimum of 150 points over the course of the Points season earn invitations to fish the 2014 STQT where the top 13 anglers qualify for the 2015 NYTBF Eastern Divisional Team.
The TBF also offers several opportunities for increased payout and additional prizes if specific program requirements are met for Ranger Cup, Evinrude, Cabela’s Angler Cash and others. For complete details check with FLW/TBF HQs.
