Hello everyone! Donna and I would like to welcome you to the Kentucky Lake Division of the ABA Couples Tournament Series. We are excited to be a part of this series. Donna and I have been fishing Kentucky Lake for many years and believe it to be the best lake on the planet. We intend to make this division the best couples fishing experience available.
We want everyone to have an enjoyable, positive experience. We want a fun competitive division where everyone has a chance to win some cash and advance to the ABA Couples National Event in October. The National ABA Couples Event has been set for Lake Eufaula, Alabama, October 2-6, 2017. We will do everything in our power to make your experience a positive one. We intend to (weather permitting) grill out at each event. We hope to have prizes for drawings at each tournament for those that do not finish in the money! We will also take any money we are paid to direct this division and buy prizes to present through drawings at the last tournament of the season for those that have fished 5 of the 6 tournaments.
We will submit all tournament results to ABA headquarters within 24 hours of each tournament for them to post on the website. We will also send results to anyone wanting them via email after each tournament, including up to date Division standings.
Please join us for some fun competition and fellowship at the 2017 ABA Couples Series, Kentucky Lake. We look forward to making your tournament fishing experience one you will truly enjoy. If you have questions or concerns please feel free to contact us by email or phone at any time.
