The Alabama Bass Trail has announced dates and locations for the 2024 ABT 100 tournament series, which includes a payout of $300,000 for all three tournaments. Returning for the fourth season, the tournament series is held on three different lakes beginning Jan. 20, 2024, attracting professional and amateur anglers from across the United States who will compete for a $25,000 first-place prize.
“This year's schedule offers anglers the opportunity to test their talents against spotted bass, largemouth and smallmouth bass on both the Coosa River and the Tennessee River,” said ABT Program Director Kay Donaldson.
The ABT 100 Series is open to professional and amateur anglers and features three tournaments. The maximum number of boats for each tournament is 100. Entry fee for each event is $1,000 and teams must fish in all three tournaments (no single entries allowed).
Tournament dates and locations for the 2024 Alabama Bass Trail 100 Series:
> Jan. 20 -- Logan Martin Lake
> June 1 -- Weiss Lake
> Nov. 2 -- Wheeler Lake
“The Alabama Bass Trail is committed to providing a quality bass fishing tournament trail that provides a 100-percent payback to our anglers, encourages economic growth in the host communities and promotes outdoor recreation throughout the great state of Alabama,” added Donaldson.
Each tournament features a $25,000 guaranteed first place prize and pays 20 places plus a $1,000 big fish, totaling $100,000.
The ABT 100 Series will bring four hours of live tournament action to viewers directly from the boats competing in the events and also will be televised later in 2024. The weigh-in and Live Leaderboard for each event will be streamed live on www.AlabamaBassTrail100.org and on Facebook at Alabama Bass Trail 100 Series.
The entry fee for the series is $3,000 per team. Each team may choose to pay a $1,500 nonrefundable deposit to hold a spot. The balance of $1500 must be paid by Dec. 1, 2023. Registration is limited to 100 boats and teams that fished the ABT 100 in 2023 will receive priority registration beginning June 1 until June 10, 2023, at www.AlabamaBassTrail100.org. Registration opens for new teams on June 11, 2023, at 6 a.m.
The Alabama Bass Trail 100 Series made its debut in January 2021 with professional and amateur anglers from 13 different states competing. According to Donaldson, anglers are traveling from 12 different states to compete in the 2023 ABT 100 Series.
