Bass Tour
The Paralyzed Veterans of America Bass Tour
Is a group of seven two-day tournaments, held at various locations around the country. Each tournament consists of an Open/Team Competition for anglers who like to fish from a boat and a Bank Competition for competitors who prefer to fish from shore.

“I want people to not think about my disability, but my ability. I can fish just like anybody else out there.” - Tony Choe, Marine Corps Reserve veteran

In the Open/Team Competition, disabled anglers are paired with able-bodied partners who serve as coaches, choose baits, and help find fishing locations. On the first day of competition only the disabled anglers compete for prizes. On the second day, the paired anglers compete as a team for cash prizes.

Disabled anglers in the Bank Competition are paired with volunteers who assist them in whatever they cannot do themselves while fishing.

In both events, prizes are awarded based on the total weight of the five heaviest fish on each day's tournament.
