  1. Hey Fellas- We will be posting the schedule in the next few days. Looking forward to getting 2021 fishing season started!
  2. There are no changes to the points system that was in place for the 2019 & 2020 season. 1. Only members in good standing are eligible to receive points for the trail. 2. Points will be awarded as individual points. If two members fish an event as a team, both anglers will receive the points earned for that event. 3. Members will be drop their lowest two(2) tournament scores. This includes missed tournaments. 4. If 2 teams have the same total weight, points totals will be determined by who has the biggest fish. 5. At the end of the year, an "Angler Of The Year" list will be determined by points totals. Awards will be given to the top 6 individual places, or 3 teams. 6. In the event of a tie for "AOY", the tie-breaker will be determined by the biggest fish weighed in from the tied members throughout the year. If the tied members are teammates, no distinction will be made. The points system looks like this: Winner = 20points 2nd = 17 points 3rd = 16 points 4th = 15 points.......each place will drop one point until: 18th = 1 point....all finishers 18th or farther will be awarded 1 point. **Anglers are only eligible for these points if you weigh a fish in the tournament** Additionally, points will be awarded as follows: 10 points for participation will be added for every contestant who fishes the tournament. 2 bonus points will be awarded for Big Fish 1 bonus point will be awarded for each fish weighed in(if you have 5 fish, you get 5 bonus points. 3 fish, 3 bonus points, etc.) There will be a total of 10 points tournaments, 1 non-points tourney and 1 trail Classic in 2021.
  3. The following rules are in place and will apply for the entire 2020 tournament season. PLEASE NOTE: By participating in any TNBF event, participant assumes all liabilities. TNBF.com will NOT be held responsible for any damages, losses or other violations incurred during an event. A liability release form is required by all participants prior to competing in any TNBF event. 1. Coast Guard approved PFD's must be worn at all times the boat is on plane. 2. Kill switches must be attached to driver at all times the boat is on plane. 3. No more than a 6 fish limit can be in possession anytime there are 2 participants in one boat. If fishing alone, state possession limits apply & only 5 fish may be in possession at any time. Only 5 fish shall be transported back to the weigh in site. NO culling at the ramp. All culling must be done on the lake before your boat is loaded onto the trailer. Culling in the parking lot will result in disqualification for the event. 4. All participants MUST be at the ramp PRIOR to the tournament start time to check in & draw a blast off number; no late starts will be allowed. If you do not sign up for the tournament on the web site prior to tourney day, you will be added to the blast off order on a first come, first serve basis. Trailering from the tournament launch site to any other ramp/launch after check in is not permitted. The last boat draw will be blast off boat. 5. At least 1 angler per boat MUST be a member in good standing on TNBassFishing.com and MUST have been a registered member with the web site PRIOR to tournament day. 6. TNBassFishing.Com reserves the right to deny entry into any tournament. 7. Lake size limits will be enforced with a minimum size limit of 12" on spotted bass.

A minimum of 5 tournaments fished will qualify a member for the Classic event in December 2019. Participants who have fished 4 events will have the option to "buy in" to the Classic. Only those qualified may fish in the classic. You do not have to stay through weigh in however you must begin the tournament in order to be classified as a participant. 14.

  5. Hopefully Shannon will post the results shortly Phil!! I know he has been covered up. @MtCarmelBugMan
  6. What’s it going to take to bring home the bragging rights of 2020 TNBF Classic winner? The bite should be better than it was on Black Friday. My guess is 16lb 9 oz with a 4-1/2lb small mouth taking home bf.
  7. Our 2020 Classic will be on Cherokee Lake, on the 12th, launching from Querryville Ramp. We have 28 folks eligible to fish with 3 people buy in eligible. Shannon will be handing out blast off cards with your blast off number when you register. Look for Shannon in his Black and Gold Dually. The blast off order is by the highest points holder in the boat. Registration will close at 6:45 and if fog allows we will blast off around 7am. See you all on Saturday. Here is a link to a list of all eligible folks. 1. Team Glitterbug 2. Team Hopson 3. Team Doughball 4. Team Tracker 5. Nobbynobbs and JVD 6. Bullet14 7. Ranger482 and G3Man 8. Expressjet and Thilton 9. Jayr and Alumacraft09 10. Ranger23 and Smallmouthz20 11. Bang 12. Peck 13. Stratos294 & jckwill1217 14. PromaX & BulletXDman 15. JustinTR

      It would be nice. A deep freeze is good to kill those sucks off a little. It could make launching a boat a little hairy next weekend. Looking forward to fishing though!!!

    3. Whopper


      We got a few inches Monday and Tuesday, cold and very windy.

      Last Saturday and Sunday it was great, sunny and mid 50's, played Clark Griswald and got all my Christmas lights up :headbang:


    4. Buckeye83


      Heck yeah Phil! We used to put up lights every year growing up in Ohio but I haven’t put out Christmas lights in 20 years. I probably will start in a couple years when our little girl gets a little more interested in the festivities!! 

  9. Oh yeah Phil. It’ll be in the frying pan Monday evening. We don’t catch many of those.
  10. Congratulations on the win fellas. I have to give all the trash fish credit to TJ. He caught the carp and a 25” walleye. Here’s a few pics of the walleye and carp. We had to fold that carp 3 times to fit it in the live well.
  11. If you are talking about signing up for the tournament you are signed up.
  12. Hey fellas. Shannon will be there so he will be taking up entry fees. Look for the black and gold dually pulling a skeeter. He will have a bright tall light at his truck so you will see him. If you plan to put in for the trash fish pot remember to bring a $5 bill. also try to get on the water early. Last year was pretty hectic with the other tournament going out of 25E. Be safe traveling and I hope you all have a great Thanksgiving day tomorrow!!!! See you Friday!!!
  13. Lol. I just heard they are biting better on Cherokee than they are on Douglas. I’m not sure what the water temperature is but the fish have to be up.
  14. TNBF will be hosting our Annual Black Friday Tournament the day after Thanksgiving on Cherokee Lake at 25E ramp! Come on out and let’s catch some fish. Look for a Brown Tundra pulling a Blue Stratos. We will blast off around 7am and fish until 4pm. Registration will cut off at 6:45. I’ve heard they are biting pretty good!! Entry fee is $40 with an optional $5 trash fish pot. The trash fish has to be alive at weigh-in. If no one weighs in a trash fish, the trash fish pot will go toward the Classic pot. 1.
