Pro-Am Tournaments (Boaters & Non-Boaters randomly paired together)
The Florida BASS Nation offers its members sixteen (16) annual opportunities for tournament fishing in the State of Florida in the Pro-Am Series. Through these tournaments, anglers (boaters and non-boaters) can qualify for the State Championship Tournament and the chance to represent Florida at the B.A.S.S. Nation Eastern Regional on the state team. At the Eastern Regional tournament, the contenders compete as a team, and as individuals can advance to the B.A.S.S. Nation National Championship and potentially the Bassmaster Classic.
- Four Regions (Northwest, Northeast, Central, & Southern)
- Each Region will host four Qualifiers
- Anglers must fish at least 2-qualifiers and finish in the top 70% of one of those qualifiers to qualify for FBN State Championship
- At the State Championship 10 boaters and 10 non-boaters (20 anglers) will advance to the B.A.S.S. Nation Eastern Regionals
- At the Eastern Regionals the top boater/non-boater from each state will advance to the B.A.S.S. Nation Championship. At the B.A.S.S. Nation Championship, anglers and co-anglers will compete for three spots in the Bassmaster Classic.
