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, points championship, plus great sponsor prizes.

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