What's the Better Half Tour?

Established for male/female bass angling teams, the Better Half Tour is a competitive, family-friendly bass fishing tournament circuit. We have fathers & daughters, husbands & wives and even some brothers and sisters fishing! Join us in 2022 and see why teams love fishing these events. Check schedules & click around our site for more info.

Our 2022 season assembles the BHT six-pack challenge: Three events at three solid NE Ohio lakes, plus three events at BassMaster Top 100 fishing lake Chautauqua Lake, NY.

More ways to win! NEW this year is the Vic’s $200 Bass Cash which will be paid at all six qualifying events (must be registered). Total Weight Championships for both Ohio and New York. Fish your favorite four events or fish all six to qualify for the 2022 Points Championship (PLUS entry fees PAID to 2023 tournaments). Big Bass Award at each event. As always, last place to cash is $100.

Great sponsor prizes at every tournament. Good payout, 1 in 4 teams finish in the money.

In 2022 we will be having a BIG FISH tournament, which means that you will bring ONLY your biggest fish caught that day to the scales. The ‘Blind Draw Doubles’ is an optional side pot in which your team’s weight plus another team’s weight (the blind draw) are combined >>> First Place splits the Blind Draw Doubles pot.

The BIG Bass event will pay out exactly the same as a regular season event. This is NOT a 2022 Points qualifying event, and Vic’s Loyalty cash is not in effect for this tournament.
