Cool Sponsor Prizes!

A great tournament for every level of angler, the Better Half Tour gives guys & gals a chance to team up for a fun day of fishing on scenic Portage Lakes or for a “Weekend Getaway” at Chautauqua Lake, NY.

We welcome and invite all husbands & wives, college teammates, couples, father/ daughters, mothers & sons – ANY mixed team combination to join us!

Remember: 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!

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 – a mother, friend, daughter, sister, or neighbor – but she MUST be in the boat to fish this tournament!

We Practice Catch and Release!How about it, Ladies? If your guy loves bass fishing, why not surprise him by signing up for the tournament with him? It’s 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. The Chautauqua Lake Weekend Getaway event features the same conveniences.

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 fishing.
