Our ranking system is based upon the performance and attendance of our members. Points are awarded for meeting attendance, tournament attendance, tournament participation, tournament scores and, of course, the weight of the fish caught. The point system in place is the best fair method that we know of to encourage friendly competition.

The Thermal Belt BassMasters has fished 11 tournaments thus far this year. The club, as a whole, has caught 493 fish for a total weight of 876.04 pounds. That means that there has been an average of 44.82 fish weighed in at each tournament. The average weight of the fish weighed in is 1.78 pounds. In the interest of conservation, we believe that it is crucial to monitor fish mortality during our 11 tournaments. For each dead fish weighed at a tournament, a penalty is assessed. This is in effort to encourage careful and humane treatment of the fish so that future generations may enjoy the sport. We have weighed in a total of 21 dead fish in our tournaments. This means that for the 11 tournaments fished this year, there has been an average of 1.91 deceased fish weighed in per tournament.
