CBF Tournament Schedules, Forms, Rules

In general, all regional events are one day and for one region.  Occasionally, we will have dual events.  A dual event is where two regions are doing a tournament on the same water at the same time.

This is a test …

First, you need to decide where you are going to fish.  Maybe it is near where you live or because you are fishing with a friend.  The schedule below will show you the areas of the state as well as date and times of the event.


  1. Download the entry form here.
  2. Send your entry and payment to the Tournament Director for your chosen region by the Monday prior to the tournament.  Entry deadline is 6:00 PM the Monday preceding the date of each tournament unless it is a postal holiday then it will be the same time (6:00 PM) on the Tuesday preceding the tournament date.  This is very important, no payments are accepted at the lake on the day of the tournament. Each Tournament Director has their own rules/policies/process for collecting entries/payments.
  3. If you identify your partner on your entry form, you will guarantee your spot for the tournament.  Both partners must send in their entry form with their payment for the entry guarantee.
  4. Verify the start day/time of the tournament and be at the location identified on the website by the time listed below.  Do not be late, there is a penalty for being late for the pre-tournament meeting. You will be assessed a flat 2 pound penalty up to 15 minutes, after 15 minutes you will be disqualified.
  5. If you have questions, contact your Tournament Director.

All tournaments are a straight draw. Your partner will be announced at the pre-tournament meeting.

Travelers Circuit

You must fish six tournaments in at least two different regions to qualify for the travelers circuit. For dual tournaments you must enter both to be qualified for the travelers results.

Dual Event

Pay your normal tournament fees and options for each region separately, but fish one single event as a boater or non-boater. Your weigh-in counts in both regions. For travelers this gives you the opportunity with one fishing time to get points in each, you also have the chance to win in either or both regions.

Open Event

Tournament is hosted by the participating region. You do not have to be a member to fish this tournament. No points are accrued.
