Wow, what an exciting January.
Already we have 68 members signed up.
We have 5 new clubs also.
Minnkota, Talon and Humminbird have all signed up as official sponsors with pro staff pricing for the top 12 from our Championship on Gull Lake last summer. Solar bat, Lowrance and others coming soon.
The 2016 MNBF Spring Fling will be April 24 out of Issac Walton park and access in Wabasha.
2016 Junior TOC will be on Knife Lake July 28.
2016 High School TOC will be on Mille Lacs July 31
2016 MNBF Championship will be July 29-30 on Mille Lacs. McQuoids and Mac's Twin bay will be hosting us.
We also have secured a waiver of the one SM over 18". It is imperative your live wells work, and that we cooperate with DNR officials on surveys, boat cleanliness and fish handling.
Top 10% of MNBF participants advance to Semi-Finals. Example 20 anglers at Spring Fling, plus 20 volunteers at Junior TOC, plus 20 volunteers at HS TOC plus 100 anglers at Mille Lacs equals 160 participants. So we would advance 8 boaters and 8 co-anglers from Mille Lacs.
The 2016 TBF National semi-final will be held in Minnesota Sept 24-25, permit has been applied for.
Host site to be Cragun's on Gull lake.
Get your club rosters put together and get your dues sent in.
Every club automatically sends a boater and a co-angler to the Semi-Finals*.
Plus the rest can fish the TOC to qualify*.
*As long as the club supports the MNBF with participation in another MNBF event.
TOC will only has 50 boaters and 50 co-anglers competing. So do not delay.
