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 8th season introduces a new format; five tournaments, increased payouts, 2019 Points Championship, plus great sponsor prizes at every tournament.

55 teams fished the Better Half Tour in 2018. The Accurate Auto Glass “Record Breaker Bonus” bar was also set higher last season.

Join us in 2019 and see why our fishing teams smile in anticipation for these events. Check schedules & click around our site for more info.
