Alabama anglers can get excited about the 2016 Alabama Bass Trail tournament schedule, announced earlier this month. The Alabama Bass Trail Tournament Series is the largest team trail in Alabama and has seen great success in its first two years.
The 10-lake team-style tournament series will kick off at Lake Martin on February 20, 2016. There are two divisions, North and South. Each division will host five tournaments, each on a different lake in the division. Six of the tournaments next year will take place on an Alabama Power lake, including Smith, Neely Henry, Weiss, Martin, Lay and Jordan. The championship tournament will take place on Lake Eufaula October 7-8 2016.
Single entries will not be allowed in 2016 and the maximum boats for each tournament will be 225 boats. Teams must fish in all five tournaments in their division.
