The 2013 payout levels have more than tripled this year making LBAA Women’s Pro Tour the highest paid fishing tour exclusively for Women. First place will receive $7500, and first place for the co-anglers will get $3750.
“Wild Card Tournament”
A special qualifying tournament for the LBAA Classic Championship will be held in Shreveport-Bossier City, LA on the Red River, September 13-13, 2013. In the past the top ten bass angling pros and co-anglers determined by a point system would advance to the ‘Classic. The new LBAA Tournament format, the Wild Card Tournament, will allow the top two pros and co-anglers berth into the LBAA Classic Championship.
“The idea,” says Cheryl Bowden LBAA co-founder, “is to gain new anglers who didn’t get a chance to fish the LBAA Women’s Pro Tour who still want to get in on the Classic Championship and to give anglers who fished the tour a chance to gain more points and make the ‘Classic’ field.”
“There is still more to come we can’t let out of the bag just yet.” Explained co-founder Secret York, “but the additional payout and Wild Card Tournament just couldn’t wait any longer. The Wild Card Tournament should make a beautiful end to the tour on the waters of the Red River.”
