I for one think that the top bass guys have got there stuff together. They have very well run tournaments and a very good following. I cant think of a better local tournament trail I would rather fish. They have great sponsors,great consolation prizes, and the two guys that run it are very friendly. they also have very nice trophys:D. at the end of the season they give away huge prizes. I havent seen the schedule yet for this year but I assume it will look somthing like this...........1)saginaw bay 2) houghton 3) sanford 4)wixom maybe a muskegon lake or two thrown in, another wixom or sanford. burt and mullet who knows but they are usually somthing like that. If you live anywhere near any of these ares please give them a look. You will se how well run even reletivly small tournaments can be. they feel like smaller versions of b.a.s.s. tourneys. I will post a schedule when I get one.

Here's some information on the 2006 Top Bass Schedule including two very recent changes I just got from Elmer Daniels. I add any updates or changes there if they occur. I only fished one last year - early June at Houghton Lake, but I enjoyed the unique individual format quite a bit.

You might want to check out this comprehensive list of bass tournaments that is put up every year too. It is constantly updated with a large percentage of the opens and circuits included.
