My name is Gerry Mahieu. I am the Owner / Director of the Saltwater Bass Series. I have been a tournament fisherman since 1979 and still get excited when I fish them to this very day. When I fish tournaments, there are certain things I expect as a paying patron. Good paybacks, a fair and level playing field, fresh coffee and sweets in the morning with some great food afterwards and most importantly.....a free basic entry Championship at the end of the tournament season where there is great product for the teams topped by one big prize. I give away a brand new Mercury 115 4-Stroke outboard to one lucky team! Along with learning throughout the tournament season, winning this motor is the goal for all that fish the Series
The Series started in November of 2011 and has been growing strong to this day. In 2018 we incorporated both a Masters and a Rookie / Family Division. These Divisions allow both experienced and new teams to compete side by side and only against each other within one single event. After the event weigh in, all the teams come together to compare their fishing day, learning from one another during the post event BBQ and awards ceremony where both Divisions are then awarded for their angling achievements
I work very hard to promote the sponsors of the SBS. You will see all the very best in the industry joining forces to promote the sport of saltwater tournament bass fishing. It is my personal goal to make the Series better each and every year. I keep and maintain an open mind and meet with the SBS tournament staff many times during the year to make sure we are doing things right and keeping things fair. You will see a great amount of effort from us who run the events, it's hard work but we all love it
If you've ever considered getting into tournaments, this is just for you. Whether you feel confident to go up against the very best in the Masters Division or you're just getting started and feel more comfortable fishing in the Rookie / Family Division......come on out and join the fun! Many parents have teamed up with their son or daughter to spend some quality time together....it's a win win for all!
