A few weeks ago exciting changes where announced for the 2015 season, some of the changes include:
Increased and guaranteed payouts at divisional events. Weekend Bass Series will offer guaranteed first place money of $3,000.00 for 50 boats or more, $4,000.00 for 75 boats or more and $5,000.00 for 100 boats or more. Co-anglers will also get the same guarantee first place money of $1,500.00 on 50 boats or more; $2,000.00 on 75 or more; and $2,500.00 on 100 boats or more. In addition, 20% of the field will receive a check in each event.
No More Linking! Registrations will be based on Package first, then the anglers date and time of registration to determine their status.
No Boat on Boat Draws
Package Registration: A package registration is when anglers sign up for all 5 events within a division. Boaters and Co-Anglers submitting a package registration will be given priority slots in events over anglers signing up for single events.
Make qualifying for the championship easier and less expensive!
10 boaters and 10 co-anglers from each division will now qualify directly from their division in one of 2 ways.
The top 5 (Boaters and Co-anglers) by points after the Divisional two-day event, in each division, will advance directly to the Championship.
The top 5 (Boaters and Co-anglers) by place of finish from the Divisional Championship who have fished all 5 divisional events will also advance directly to the championship. If any angler does not accept or is already qualified for the slot(s) by points the next highest finishing and qualified angler will receive the Championship slot(s).
No More A-Rig. Starting in 2015 ABA will prohibit the use of the Alabama Rig/Umbrella on all Weekend Bass Series events.
