Our Goal is to run the best tournament series and build a community of anglers that share a passion for salt water bass, while competing against their peers in the sport.
The concept for Salt Water Bass Anglers and the “Race for the Cup” series drew from various tournaments that had been independently organized and directed by Eric Bent and James Shamblin in the early 2000’s. Both directors had put on a number of tournaments from Dana Point to Long Beach, California using artificial lures and incorporating a live weigh-in format.
Overall , the main motivation for organizing the “Race for the Cup” series is simply for the camaraderie and the love of the sport. It has been and still remains their practice to organize well-run, environmentally friendly, affordable events that are fun to fish, competitive, and held on a level playing field.
