Shelf Bass Special

April 29, 2016 @ 11:00 pm - April 30, 2016 @ 7:00 am


. . .it has always been the ‘purity’ of the coast that keeps things honest

While the current trend of anglers pushing their skiffs over to the offshore islands in pursuit of big calicos in pristine and un-tapped waters, the roots of inshore bass fishing is just that, ‘In-Shore’. The foundation and building blocks of the SWBA is based on events held along our coastline from Santa Barbara to San Diego. It wasn’t until last season that the boundaries for a ‘Land-Based’ event included Catalina and Santa Barbara islands.  And while SWBA has gone from costal events with boundaries, to lifting those boundaries, and back again . . . it has always been the ‘purity’ of the coast that keeps things honest. Small skiffs can run neck & neck with ‘the big boys’ and everyone is on the same level. In the past we’ve seen teams break-down at the starting line, only to place in the top 3 fishing on trolling motor for 8 hours. These are the type of stories and the reason you will always see coastal events in the SWBA schedule.

All tournaments within the series are ‘Open Tournaments’ that may also be fished individually or fish all 5 events earn points to qualify for the Elite Championship and Anglers of The Year Award.
