SAN ANTONIO, TX (5/27/2020) – At each Association of Collegiate Anglers event, a large amount of money is available to win through contingency programs and payouts from series partners. At the 2020 BoatUS Collegiate Bass Fishing Championship presented by Bass Pro Shops all those prizes increase to include the 1st place winning team being eligible for an additional $6,250 in contingency payouts if they meet all of the various criteria. Combine that with the $5,000 overall 1st place cash prize, and the winner of the 2020 Championship could go home with as much as $11,250 in cash and payouts.
For college anglers competing during Championship week, they should know that each contingency program has its own specific rules & requirements for anglers to be eligible. Several of the programs will payout just for 1st place, while others will award the highest-finishing team if the winner does not qualify, which could mean earning big prizes way down in the field. Listed below are the contingencies available at the Championship, along with a link to register and find more information:
