Club Tournaments

A Club membership and a B.A.S.S. membership (not included with club membership) is required prior to entry in any tournament. Membership dues are $70 ($23 goes to Denver Bassmasters, $30 goes to National Federation and $17 goes to the Colorado Bass Federation). All other info shown below is provided as general standards and may be subject to change.

Tournaments are a draw format. Each boater's and non-boater's name is put in separate hats and drawn as "partners". If a non-boater is drawn out for a tournament, they are given priority for the next tournament. It is not a team format, your individual weight counts at the end of the day. On two-day events, you will change partners the second day. During tournament day, the non-boater is given the opportunity to operate the front of the boat during one half of the day (Boater chooses which half of the day they want control). However, any damage caused by the non-boater is the responsibility of the non-boater. Travel costs are split between partners. This includes truck gas, boat gas, lodging (if required), park fees, etc. and is generally discussed prior to leaving. All travel expenses are split with your first day partner. The goal is to have fun and learn something while competing against fellow anglers!

Entry Fee: $40 ($5 goes to the big bass pot) Payback: Top 3 minimum

$5 will also be added to the Megabucks Championship pot at the end of the year. Entry into the championship requires participation in three tournaments. There are no placement requirements (i.e. top 10). Anyone who fishes three tournaments can fish the Megabucks tournament at the end of the year.

Open Tournaments

Open tournaments allow DBM members and non members to fish with a friend or a family member in a non competitive, fun, learning environment. Open tournaments are $60 per boat. Fish as a team or a single. 80% is paid out with 20% going to the club to support our conservation and junior club efforts. New for 2015 is an optional high stakes side pot of $100 with 100% payout. All the same tournament rules apply (see rules below). Winners are determined by live weigh in at the end of the day, live well required. Total weight of your 5 heaviest keeper fish determine placing. Payouts are based on participation. All participants must be current B.A.S.S. members and present proof at registration. All boaters need to show proof of insurance, minimum of 300k in liability. There are no AOY points.
