New season new rules in place for PBC trail.
This season's rules are posted. The highlights of the changes are:
• Middle School teams will have a three fish limit.
• Entry fees this year are $10 per team
• Anglers and Captains are not allowed to hire or fish with a guide within 30 days of the tournament date.
• Team of the Year will be based on points earned in the four assigned tournaments. Divisions will be combined. In the event of a tie, total weight will be the tiebreaker.
• Classic – Win and you are in. Event winners will receive an automatic berth to the Classic. The top 40 high school teams from each division will advance, and the top 10 middle school teams advance. The full field will fish two days, and the third day will cut down to the top 20 high school teams and the top five middle school teams. Weights will reset to zero for the third day, and the location will be announced on Thursday prior to the event.
Congrats to Carter Mcneil former AHS fishing team member and his partner Cole Floyd for winning the Bassmaster National Championship. That’s 3 nationals wins in 3 years. 😎 Abbeville strong!
Daelyn and Lilly had a great tournament at nationals they came in 5th out of 300 boats. Great job ladies way to represent your team and state!!! Also had a camera man 2 days be on the look out for some great footage 🙂
Looks good we will be group B. The meeting for the new season will be the beginning school. Please find you a boat captain and a partner, and let’s be the dominant school again:)
2019 / 2020 PBC HS TOURNAMENT TRAIL:
For the upcoming season, to accommodate additional growth, we have decided to divide the trail into two groups, based on last years school points. Group A will be the schools who finished in an odd numbered position, 1,3,5,7, etc. Group B will be the schools who finished in an even numbered position, 2,4,6,8, etc. The groups are listed below the schedule in this schedule.
The 2020 Classic will be a three day event. The first two days will be on Lake Wylie, and we have moved the timing up into April to avoid some of the conflicts that occur in May. The third day will be the announced on Thursday that week, and will be for the top 20 HS teams from the Classic, and the top five MS teams.
I’ll cover rule updates and other important info in another post once the 19/20 web page is up.
