May, June, August, and September are traditionally point tournaments where individual anglers earn points towards the “Angler of the Year”, "Female Angler of the Year" and "Couple of the Year" divisions.
Plaques and prizes are awarded to first- through third-place finishers, and prizes also go to the member catching big fish of the tournament. Tournament entry fees are $23 plus $2 for an optional big fish pot.
The end of the first day of competition is topped off with a large potluck-style dinner that has proven to be a fun time for all. This is a great time for socializing and relaxation after a hard day of fishing. It takes away the non-social edge that many competitive events foster. Many members attend the tournaments due to the camping and socializing alone, with the tournament as an added bonus.
Points are awarded depending on how you finish. The "Angler of the Year", "Female Angler of the Year, and "Couple of the Year" awards are determined by adding each members' points acquired in his/her best three out of the four tournament finishes. Points for each placement per tournament are awarded as follows:
Washington State Jamboree
In addition to these tournaments, the club also participates in the Washington State Bass Federation Jamboree, a club-against-club competition held on Banks lake over Memorial Day weekend. This three day event is the largest tournament in the state pitting over 30 clubs against each other for trophies, prizes and bragging rights.
The club opens this event to all members, tossing out qualifying quotas many other clubs have.
The club consistently places in the top 5 every year. A testimony to the calibur of anglers in the Western Bass Club!
