Any rule violation could result in disqualification.  Rulings will be decided by members of the executive committee.

Any member that shows up late for a scheduled tournament must launch his boat and immediately find one of the executive committee members to pay their fee and have an inspection on their live well.

In the event of a tie, the boats that are tied would split the corresponding points and prizes.

Membership fee is $25 per person.  (Kids less than 16 years of age do not have to pay a membership fee.)
Tournament fees are $25 per person (including $5 Big Bass).

Tournament Payouts: 
If there are less than 10 people fishing, the tournament will pay 1st place and big bass.
100% of money for 1st

If there are 10-19 people fishing, the tournament will pay 1st and 2nd and big bass.
1st = 70%
2nd =30%

If there are 20 or more people fishing, the tournament will pay 1st, 2nd and 3rd and big bass.

Each tournament 3rd place finisher will receive 3 points.
Each tournament 4th place finisher will receive 2 points.
Each tournament 5th place finisher will receive 1 point.
Each big bass winner will receive an additional 3 points.
Each participant will receive one point for every pound that they weigh-in (Rounded down to the nearest hundredth pound).

The point’s leader at the end of the regular season schedule will be deemed “Angler of the Year”.

Points will determine the order of launch for each tournament.

Each member must fish at least 5 of the regularly scheduled club tournaments to become eligible to fish in the Classic.  In order for your partner to be eligible he has to fish 3 regular season tournaments with you.

If a team splits up during the season, the club will split their current point totals (both types of points).

If two members of opposite teams fish together in a tournament, they will split both points and weight for standings purposes.

If two teammates fish in the same tournament but with separate partners, the team will be rewarded the number of pounds and points from the boat of the partner that finished worse in that tournament.

Anybody that has not recently been an active member in the club must pay their membership fee 30 days prior to fishing in a tournament.  Prior to the first tournament of each season, the person trying to join must pay enough for that tournament and another club tournament along with their membership dues.  NO EXCEPTION

A guest can fish a tournament without waiting the 30 days, IF they are fishing with a current member.  They are required to pay their membership before fishing, and this will result in a new membership and the collective points of that tournament will be split between each other.  

Guides and or Pro Fishermen are ineligible to join, or fish with the club.

First Club Meeting

We are planning our first club meeting to be on January 20th at 6:00 p.m. at Iberia Bank in Newport.  We encourage all past members to attend, and we invite anyone that may have an interest in fishing with us as well. Pass the word around and let everyone know!

We have continued to have a very strong bass club over the last few years, last year we averaged 18 boats per tournament.  With a high of 24 boats showing up at Norfork.  We will discuss a few changes that will be brought up, along with some new waters to fish this year.  I'm excited to get everything going this year and look forward to seeing you all.  

If any of you know someone that may be interested in getting into tournament fishing let them know what we do and invite them.  If they have any questions you aren't sure about or have someone you want me to contact give them my number and i will be more than happy to talk with them.  REMEMBER as a member you act as the main source of recruitment for our club, and I'd love for us to have a 20 boat average this year!  

If you have any questions call Andy Latting 870-512-8588.

Thanks to everyone who came out and fished with us this year, 2014 is in the books!  The Jackson County Bass Club Classic was hashed out at Lake Dardanelle and it was a fight to say the least.  First place and second big bass with 4 fish went to Brad Keiffner and Billy Keedy, second place was Bob Hardin and Sawyer Floyd with the only limit of fish weighed in.  Third place and making a solid run from 7th up to 4th place in AOY points goes to the father son duo Mike and Blake Anschultz.  Fourth went to Kenny Pearle and Rick Sampson and fifth was Eric Jackson and Mike Lawson.  It has been another great year, and we are looking forward to getting next year started up.  There may be a few fruit jar and open tournaments between now and then, we will keep you posted.  

Thanks to our sponsors this year for the support and making it possible!
