FIRST EVENT: Spring Fling
May 9, 2020
What's the Better Half Tour?
Established for couples and mixed team bass anglers, the Better Half Tour is a competitive, friendly bass fishing tournament circuit.
Our 2020 season introduces new features; SIX tournaments, increased payouts, 2020 Points Championship. Highest Total Weight Bonus for New York events only, plus a separate bonus for all three Ohio events. Great sponsor prizes at every tournament.
55 teams fished the Better Half Tour in 2018. 74 teams joined us in 2019. The Accurate Auto Glass “Record Breaker Bonus” bar was also set higher in 2019 at Chautauqua Lake.
Join us in 2020 and see why our fishing teams smile in anticipation for these events. Check schedules & click around our site for more info.

I love shows and expos! All of your favorite things about fishing under one giant roof. Its truly an adult toy store. Boat shows and fishing expos all come at the right time of year for us northerners. If we can’t get out on the water and fish, let’s go SHOPPING! There are always TONS of great deals, discounts and packages at every booth. Plus, if you are like me, there is only SO MUCH Major League Fishing you can watch before you start chomping at the bit. This year kicked off the season with the Cleveland Boat Show and Fishing Expo. It was great to see BHT sponsors Vic’s Sports
