Welcome to the American Bass Anglers District #46. We are located in North-East Illinois and North-West Iowa.

Come join us, the 2005 season is underway.

Feel free to check out the rest of the site for more information on ABA and District #46.

Another season has arrived. This year will be a lot of fun with new members and new launch sites. Overall the 2004 season was much better than our first season (2003). We had more members, more sponsors and more fish. Hopefully this is a continuing trend. See you all next season.

The 2004 season brought a few changes and a very close points race. We had some great sponsors provide awesome trophies for each event. Slayden's Auto Repair in Andalusia (309-798-2288), Agent Chris DeVries for Country Insurance and Financial Services (309-781-5841) and Lake George Boat Rental in Illinois City (309-795-1070) provided the funding that made it possible to purchase all of the trophies and awards that were given away at each tournament. Please support the companies that helped support our District.


Lake George is the site of our next tournament.

Several anglers have graduated from the ABA and went on to fish the Wal-Mart FLW Tour, the Citgo Bassmaster Tour and even on to WIN the BASSMASTER CLASSIC.

The sport of competitive bass fishing is growing more and more every season. According to studies, it is outpacing every other sport in the country. Analysts are predicting that Bass Fishing will be Bigger Than Nascar in the next 10 years.

If you have dreams of fishing for a living, but don't know where to start you have come to the right place. We offer a great platform for anglers that are new to tournament fishing. If you don't own a boat, IT'S NO BIG DEAL. Our tournaments are ran in a draw format. This means that Non-Boaters will be paired with anglers that have boats. Several of today's top Pro anglers got their start fishing ABA.

For those of you that already have tournament experience and are simply looking for a new circuit, new friends and new places to fish, we have you covered too. Our members are great people that are easy to get along with. The tournaments are professionaly run, but still have a very friendly and fun atmosphere. We also have a "Bring Your Boat, Use Your Boat" policy. No longer do you have to worry about leaving your boat at the marina after hauling it to the tournament site. If it's there, you will use it.

Win 1 of 3, Triton TR21X Bass Boats. These boats are FULLY LOADED and include a 225HP Mercury Optimax.

Is the guy that's getting paid to fish REALLY WORKING?
