Remember: The main rule is that there must be one male and one female per boat/team. You may not fish alone (that kinda defeats the whole idea, doesn’t it?). Enjoy your day and some quality time with your fishing partner!

CONGRATULATIONS to Nate Meyerrose & Maddison Watkins, our 2016 Spring Fling WINNERS!

THANK YOU to EVERYONE who participated on a beautiful day! Maria and I sincerely appreciate your continued support of The Better Half Tour, and we look forward to seeing you at the 2016 Fall Classic for another friendly and fun fishing event!

A very special THANK YOU to these incredible sponsors: Vic’s Sports Center, Kames Sports, Kieffer Marine Inc., RodMakers Shop, Verbinator Baits, Ohio Pro Lure, and EZ Web Center.

The Better Half Tour is designed with the ladies in mind: nice bathrooms, later start times and shorter hours make this a great way to introduce bass fishing tournaments to ALL ladies – she can be your mother, friend, daughter, or sister, but she MUST be in the boat with you to fish this tournament!

How about it, Ladies? If your guy loves bass fishing, why not surprise him by signing up for the tournament with him?

We practice Catch and Release!

Its a great way to bond, and The Better Half Tour is the perfect setting – Portage Lakes are idle only, so no high speeds. We also chose a later start time, shorter overall time, and the park with nice bathrooms with flush toilets, electricity and sinks.

Whether you just want to see what this ‘bass fishing tournament” thing is all about, or you’re a seasoned tournament angler, we want you to come along for a fun day that’s full of  boating, bonding, and (of course), BASS.

STAY TUNED for upcoming information for the 2016 Better Half Tour Fall Classic bass fishing event!
