My name is Gerry Mahieu…..having lived in Southern California my entire life, I began fishing bass tournaments before I had a drivers license.
35 plus years later and hundreds of tournaments under my belt, I want to offer competing anglers a great tournament experience at all the SBS events.
The SBS has the best sponsors that give the most to the teams….lots of product with a great pay out along with coffee and sweets before and great food after is a no brainer, thats what I would want to see if I myself were fishing an event so thats what the participating teams will get.
An awesome payback is of great importance – A 1 in 4 payout at 80% basic (10% is also retained for the year-end championship) along with a 100% payback for BIG BASS and TOP 5 option with all monies openly stated to those involved leaves no grey area, ensuring the competing anglers that they are getting the most back for their money. To top it off, if you qualify for the championship you pay NO BASIC ENTRY!
A challenging schedule and different formats will surely dictate the most talented of teams. Only the best of the very best will finish at or near the top of each of the Regions events.
You’ve heard about the SBS, now come and see what we’re all about!
