33) ANGLER OF THE YEAR: Will be determined by the team with the most points accumulated at the end of the year, based on their best 6 events in one region with the same partner. (
T.O.C. Qualifications are different then A.O.Y. see rule 34 & 34B)
34) TOC : The TOC will be a separate event, to be held at the end of the season. BBT anglers are eligible to win a grand prize given away to the overall winner of the event. All other BBT money will be kept separate. BBT will take the top 40% of the parameters to qualify. You need to fish a minimum of 4 events in one region with the same partner and have a qualifying score based on the total of your top 5 scores in one region with the same partner. An additional 5 point bonus will be added to your score if you fish all 6 events in that same region.
Teams with the same partner fishing any 7 or more regional events in the BBT will automatically qualify for the TOC, you must fish more as a
team then an individual. (Opens are not included). Teams qualifying for the TOC will be announced at the conclusion of the full BBT schedule of all regular season events for the year.
We are pleased to announce the addition of Phenix Rods & Accessories to the BBT family of sponsors. Phenix is a California based company that makes quality rods for all your fishing needs - The Feather series is the newest in the Phenix bass series of rods. This rod promises to be one of the lightest, most sensitive rods the fishing industry has ever seen.
