This season, anglers can qualify for six regionals where the first-place boater and co-angler each take home a brand-new Phoenix bass boat. The winning boater also pockets $10,000 in addition to the boat, and the highest finishing boater from each division at a regional receives a $1,000 bonus. The highest finishing co-angler from each division at a regional receives a $500 bonus. Regional qualification goes to the top 45 anglers in each division, plus the winners of the qualifiers and the Super Tournaments. New for 2023, each Regional will also feature a $1,000 boater and $500 co-angler Berkley Big Bass award.
The Wild Card will maintain its $13,000 top boater award, including Phoenix MLF Bonus, and a top co-angler award of $3,000. Enter all five events in a division, fish at least two and automatically advance to the Wild Card if you are not qualified for a Regional.
The top six boaters and co-anglers from each Regional and the Wild Card in 2023 qualify to fish the no-entry-fee All-American in 2024. The highest-finishing boater and co-angler from each Regional and the Wild Card at the All-American advance to the Toyota Series Championship – anglers only need to beat five anglers from their Regional to advance to a second no-entry-fee championship for a shot at one of the sport’s biggest paydays.
New for 2023, the All-American boater champion advances to REDCREST 2024 for a shot at winning $300,000.
