The TBF Federation National Championship is a NO ENTRY FEE tournament, with a payout of over 200,000 dollars in cash and prizes! After a TBF Angler qualifies for their Federation State Team, they will compete in the Divisional Championship Series Tournament (7 Divisions). If that angler finishes in the top 2 spots of their state, they qualify to fish in the TBF Federation National Championship.

It is generally a week long event held usually in conjunction with an FLW Tour Event. The top finisher of every State Federation becomes a boater and every 2nd place finisher in the state is a Non-Boater. Every angler will be treated to use of a brand new Ranger Boat, complete with all needed electronics to fish the tournament.

Also within this tournament, another chance to qualify for more tournaments is happening. At the end of 2 fishing days, the Division Champion boaters and Co-anglers I.E. the top finisher in each Division (Boater & Co-Angler) will advance directly to an automatic entry into the BFL All-American Tournament. So 14 anglers will go on to compete there.

But the ultimate prize of all is to be the overall winner! The TBF Federation National Champion (Boater) and Co-Angler both win a TBF Living The Dream prize package to include; $$ CASH$$ + PLUS……. for the boater + fully paid entry fees to the FLW Tour as a tour pro, PLUS, use of a custom, Living The Dream wrapped Chevy Truck and custom wrapped Ranger Boat on tour for the year, PLUS a travel stipend for each event and for the Co-angler National Champion fully paid entry fees into the RayoVac series of choice!


BOTH TBF Anglers Advance! In addition to the BFL All-American, the TBF Federation Champion Boater & Champion Non-Boater automatically ADVANCE directly to the NO ENTRY FEE, Forrest Wood Cup Championship!
