SBBT

Sturgeon Bay Bass Tournament

2022

Attention Sturgeon Bay Bass Tournament Anglers: The 2022 Tournament, scheduled for May 9 – 10, will again be a weigh on the water format using Brecknell Scales. These scales will be the exact scale and fish grip used by both the MLF and FLW tournaments. Scoring will be done using the FishDonkey app on your smart phone.

If you have been around the SBBT since its start in May of 2015, you probably know I have advocated for a weigh on the water tournament. As technology has progressed and with the MLF and FLW both holding tournaments in Sturgeon Bay in 2020, it was clear to me that the wave of the future for fishing tournaments is moving quickly to that style of format. This definitely is the future in our sport.

As this has been a learning process for us using this new technology we have learned that our scales will lock in much faster by using Pounds and Ounces rather than Pounds and Hundredths as we did last year. All of our scales will now be set to read Pounds and Ounces this year, this is the same method usef by Major League Fishing.

We have received many positive comments to our new method and are excited to get this year’s tournament started. As we move forward, we will continue to provide updated information on how the process will work, so stay tuned to our sites for the latest information. Entry forms will be available in the next couple of weeks. If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to contact at me at 920-495-6551.
