For less than $160.00* total “Dues & Entry Fees”
It does not get any less expensive than that! TBF members do it very year.

Every dollar counts right now in our uncertain economy, people are watching their pennies closely, but to the savvy angler there are some GREAT deals right now. Great deals on Ranger Boats, and great deals on low cost or NO COST fishing tournaments. It could also explain the growth in TBF membership over the last year by “those in the know.” TBF events are close to home and the opportunities and the money just keeps getting bigger and bigger! So now is the time to join up and start fishing! On a national average, (it varies by state). TBF is the “best kept secret” in fishing circles. An average TBF member has always paid LESS THAN $200.00* per person in a years time in total dues and tournament entry fees to possibly fish all the way to the $2 Million Dollar Forrest Wood Cup! Here’s how to do it! Join or start a TBF affiliated club, our clubs are grassroots anglers just like YOU!

State Tournament Format

This is an open tournament with entry available only, but to all, TBF of Nebraska members. There are two competition divisions, boater and co-angler, with separate prize pools for each division. Boaters compete against boaters, and co-anglers compete against co-anglers. If you enter as a boater, you are guaranteed to fish out of your boat. Co-anglers are assigned to a boater by draw each of the two days of competition. Co-angler entries are limited to the number of boater entries received.
