Qualifying Events

April 29 Pleasant Pond Thomas Behen Memrial Open is a qualifying event for all high school teams wishing to qualify for the State Championship.

Qualifying Events hosted by Somerset Bassmasters are Individual Opens

The Individual Opens hosted by Somerset Bassmasters can be used as Qualifying Events for Junior and High School Teams. The term Individual Open, means that the boaters are competing against the other boaters, and the non boaters against the other non boaters. ...

The boater can also function as a boat captain for a high school or junior team. Junior and High School Teams with a volunteer boat captain do not need to pay an entry fee unless they wish to compete against the other non boaters in the Junior or High School division, and the boat captain does not need to compete separately in the event unless he wants to. The entry fees for those choosing to compete for prize money are: $25 per person (or $25 Per Junior/HS team) Entry fee distribution is as follows: $10 to the division winner, $5 to the division 2nd place, $5 to the division lunker, and the final $5 to pay for the permit (if there are enough entries after $55 is collected for the permit then the last $5 goes to the respective third places) The Junior or High School team would enter in the non boater division with the a five fish team limit. Junior or High School anglers who don't have a teammate can fish alone as a non boater in the event and it would still qualify as a fished tournament for championship purposes. (The anglers eventual Championship partner will have to have fished a qualifying event as well)
