Morris Sheehan, US Army Retired purchased Military Bass Anglers in January of 2000. Since purchasing the company he continues to focus American Bass Anglers efforts on running events for the weekend angler of which many are active or former military. American Bass Anglers since its creation has run more fishing events for the military than any other national fishing organization.

ABA has run events at locations like Ft. Hood (Fishing for Freedoms 1, 2 and 3), 2006 Ft Campbell (101 Airborne Tournament), 2007 ABA held 3 separate take a solider fishing events in the New York, Illinois, and Georgia. Over 5,000 military personnel have had the opportunity to spend the day on a lake through these ABA operated events.

In 2008 ABA will operate the 18th annual Military Team Bass Tournament. This event continues to show the commitment and tradition of American Bass Anglers to support the military bass angler.

 

 

   

2016 Military Team Bass Tournament Dates Announced

ATHENS, Ala. – The 2016 Military Team Bass Tournament, presented by American Bass Anglers and hosted by the Eufaula-Barbour Chamber of Commerce will take place May 4th-6th, 2015 at Lake Eufaula, AL. The onsite registration and dinner will take place on May 3rd, 2015 at the Eufaula Recreation Center.

The 26th annual Military Team Bass Tournament will take place out of Lakepoint State Resort (link) in Eufaula, AL. The resort provides excellent dining, lodging and water access facilities for the competitors, tournament officials and families of competitors. The competitors will fish the 45,181 acre reservoir along the Chattahoochee River, which spans part of the Alabama-Georgia border.

"This will be the third year that Eufaula has hosted the ABA Military Team Bass Tournament and we are looking forward to having the anglers back in 2016," said Jack TIbbs, Mayor of Eufaula. "This event has always had special meaning to me, as it was one of the last events that I was able to fish here with my father several years ago," he added.

Members of the United States Armed Forces from all over the country make the drive to compete in the 2016 event at Lake Eufaula. Any active duty Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, National Guard, Reserve or Coast Guard member may fish in this event. Families of military members, honorably discharged veterans, Department of Defense civilians, contractors, and retired military members may also fish this event.

The Military Team Bass Fishing Tournament began in 1991 as a way to promote fishing and camaraderie among all branches of the military. In 1975, ABA began as the Military Bass Anglers Association, an organization dedicated to providing bass anglers in the military an opportunity to compete in tournaments with other military members. In 2000, Morris Sheehan, a life member who retired from the U.S. Army, bought MBAA, renamed it American Bass Anglers Inc., and relocated it to Athens, Ala.

Officially dubbed Walter F. George Reservoir, the dam was completed in 1962, creating Lake Eufaula. Bassmaster magazine ranked the reservoir as Number 50 on its list of the top 100 bass lakes in the United States for 2014. Over the years, Lake Eufaula produced many double digit bass with excellent numbers of one to four pound bass and plenty of five to eight pounders. It still produces occasional double digit fish, including a few up to 10 pounds. Improvements to the fishery should make bass fishing even better in coming years, the mayor predicted. "The fishing has steadily improved on Lake Eufaula over the past few years. This year Lake Eufaula moved up to the number 21 on Bassmaster’s Best Bass Lakes of 2015," said Jack Tibbs, Mayor of Eufaula.

Since Lake Eufaula sits on the Alabama-Georgia line, anglers can fish the lake with a license from either state. For Eufaula area information, call the Eufaula Barbour Chamber of Commerce at 800-524-7529, or see www.eufaulachamber.com
