About the Series
The Fishers of Men Berkley Classic Team Series is designed to give you, the competitive bass fisherman, an opportunity to compete for cash, prizes and recognition in an environment unlike any other. Berkley Team Series Divisions feature a 2-person team competition. Each Berkley Team Series Division will host 5 Divisional Tournaments. Teams will be competing to qualify and represent their respective Divisions in one of our Championship Events.
Entry fees for Berkley Team Series events is $150 and 1 out of every 5 teams entered will earn a check.
A major part of the attraction of Fishers of Men is the Friday night Pre-Tournament meetings where contestants receive a free meal, lots of door prizes, and hear an inspirational message. Combine that with professionally run tournaments, designed to be affordable for the weekend angler with a pay-out at the divisional level of 70%, and a total pay-out exceeding 81% and it's easy to see why Fishers of Men events are some of the most popular around. Important information concerning times and locations of your Friday night Pre-Tournament meetings may be found on our Tournament Schedule Page.
To compete on the Trail, you must join the Fishers of Men National Tournament Trail organization through one of our Membership options.
Membership fees are as follows:
Individual $40 (+ $2.50 Proccessing fee)
