$100,000 Super Slam Bass Tour

4 posts in this topic

This is some information I received from the director .

2008 Super Slam Bass Tour

Catch the Excitement!

The mission of the Super Slam Bass Tour is quite simply to provide a tournament venue that is

worth your time and money to fish. The tour will feature the largest payouts ever seen in a Minnesota

bass circuit. The tour is a team format and teams must enter the entire circuit, this keeps the payouts stable

and prevents local experts from entering just one of the tournaments on their home water. There will be

five tournaments with no tournament of champions. Each tournament is a championship of it’s own with

a $50,000 top prize! There will be a $5,000 bonus for the team of the year. The tour will feature

state-of-the-art weigh-in equipment, first class weigh-in procedures and large trophies. With a laid-back

atmosphere, huge payouts, and a preferred tournament format, it just doesn’t make sense to invest your

fishing time, money, and effort anywhere besides the 2008 Super Slam Bass Tour!

Alternates

Each team member may use an alternate partner not more than two times during the tour. One member of the

primary team must fish the tournament. The intent is to accommodate any scheduling conflicts. Tournaments

fished with an alternate partner will still count towards the primary teams points standings

Enter Now!

Entry Fees and Deposits

The entry fee is $5000 per team for the year – that breaks down to $500 per angler per event. A $1000 deposit per

team must be received by Feb. 1st, 2008 in order to fish the tour. The balance due ($4000 per team) must be received

by May 1st, 2008.

You can send your deposits in with confidence. If the Tour does not reach the minimum number of 70 teams,

the Tour will be cancelled and deposits promptly refunded. If the Tour reaches the minimum number of 70 teams, the

deposit money is non-refundable. This is where you can help make the tour a huge success – if you like what you see

here, tell all of your fishing friends about the tour and encourage them to participate!

Any concerns, questions, or just to talk fishing, contact tournament director Brian Kastenbauer at 320-224-8433 or

email at Kasten4bass@hotmail.com . Tournament secretary – Brenda Halstead at 320-679-2207.

Having worked with several clubs over past 20 years I still think it would jinx the number of entrants that want to apply by giving out information on entry numbers

Maybe I am wrong but unless a tournament is close to full or already is it remains confidental.

Hopefully Superslam board will get online here and let us in on more details

Obviously they did not hit the 70 team minumum or they would not have lifted that rule and canceled the event

I hope them good luck and would love to see this series develop

      Boy, some people must just hate their life.

      I recommend considering other lakes.  URL by the 4th is nearly void of walleye.  8 years or so ago, we did a two-family trip and only caught fresh water drum.  Star Trib Article

      I was honored to be part of the "Veterans on Lake Superior" trip again this year. Channel six did a nice story about the Veterans. They were a great group out on the water.   http://www.kbjr6.com/video?clipId=13445592&autostart=true

      Hi Cliff -   Thanks for the update on the hatch.  Is this usually a bust for 2 weeks once the big hatches start?  Will be up the 30th-9th, but still excited since its the first time staying for a full week at the in-laws cabin.  Hoping to provide a few updates on the West Side through the week.

      Thanks for the info.  I searched before and after this thread for any old threads on this topic.  I got nothing before and this thread is the only one that pops up after.  I will keep looking online or stop at one of the big box stores.    Tight lines.

      J-Roy,  I use UL rod and 4 lb a lot when throwing jigs. I have found that the lighter the jig head, the more fish bite and the more you hook. Wind will mess up using light jigs though. When fishing heavy jigs, cranks, top water or spoons, I use heavier line and rod. If fishing weeds need heavy line as well.   Hook ups/bites is much higher with lite jigs. I missed about 50% of hits yesterday using 1/2 oz head. Landed about 90% of hits a few days ago when using 1/8 oz head. Tough to fish 1/8 oz on even 8 lb line so I stick with 4 lb .
