USAC and Ultimate Bass Merge
U.S. Anglers Choice and Ultimate Bass Team Tour are pleased to announce that they will
be merging their Southwest tournament trails in 2013.
Ultimate Bass Team Tour will be absorbing the U.S. Anglers Choice Region #2
trails outside of California with it’s current trails to create the largest team circuit and
championship event for trails outside of the Golden State. The new trails will be known
as AC-UBTT tournament trails.
“I am very excited about the prospects for the coming years”, noted Allen Bratton, owner
and operator of Ultimate Bass. “ By joining forces with USAC and with the addition
of the U.S. Anglers Choice former trails to our existing base of trails, we are going to
have the largest Southwest teams circuit outside of California. This will allow us to have
participation levels that will result in larger Team Championship events – one in which
UBTT will be able to provide a larger prize package”.
“We are pleased to be working with Ultimate Bass and Allen Bratton on this venture”,
noted Bill Hutcheson, Director of Operations for US Anglers Choice. “While USAC
will be retaining its trails within California, this merger is going to allow larger year end
events which will give back more to the anglers.
Ultimate Bass will be taking over the day-to-day management of USAC Nevada,
Arizona, Colorado River, Lower Colorado River, and New Mexico trails. More details of
this deal will be forthcoming as the new season approaches.
Guys/Gals as a director I believe this to be a very good thing for our area and our sport. I have spoken numerous times to Allen and he is very open to director and angler imput. He has one of the only trails that the participation numbers have increased over the years instead of decreased.
This USAC schedule was released back in April/May, but due to Angler imput we have modified the AC-UBTT schedule for the upcoming season. (7 events, 5 different lakes)

What are the all-in entry fees for this new team circuit going to be? What are the percentage of payouts at the lake going to be? Think you need to post a lot more info about the new circuit before anglers can make an educated decision to fish with you.

Paul, yes there is a membership fee, but it has not been given to me yet.
Ron, Basic entry fee is $185 and that covers permits, insurance, ect. I will post payout breakdowns and such as soon as I receive them. I just got this press release today. For the most part anglers can expect what I was doing with Anglers Choice.
Once I have options and costs it will all be posted.
