Angler's Choice is a Nat'l Tournament organization that's run very similarly to the BASS Federation. Each state can organize as many A/C Divisions as they want, and MI currently has 2....covering the East and West side of the state,...If someone up north wanted to start a division, they could providing they met the Nat'l criteria, etc....I'm not exactly sure what's involved from the Directors stand point, however there are dues and entry fees and paperwork that need to be submitted to Texas after every tournament. Each division in each state can send teams to the A/C Regional tournament provoding they qualify, etc, and thay are fishing for Bass Cat boats since they are the Nat'l Boat sponsor. The MI-East division is 3 or 4 years old and our tournament director Doug Phillips is doing a GREAT job,....the 1st year the avg. draw was 30boats.....this year it's 60...our tournaments are held on Saginaw Bay, Lk St.Clair, and Lk.Erie,....awesome smallie water!! It's a team set-up with a 5 fish limit so fishing by yourself is allowed. We have a point system that allows us to keep a cumulative running and the Top 15 teams from our division will get to fish in the A/C Northern Regionals held this sept, on the almighty 'Clair! YEOW, I'd love to make that team!! That's my goal and that's how the A/C circuit is....atleast in Eastern Michigan. Check around and see if there's a A/C circuit in your state and ask for the rules and tournament dates,....it's a great circuit!!
Thanks for asking and good luck!!
