Tournament Rules & Regulations


Proceeds for the Blazing Bass Challenge will be donated to the Bobby Lane Cup Scholarships. In 2010 Bobby Lane started his first tournament geared towards Jr. Anglers and High School anglers, the Bobby Lane Cup. This tournament provides a platform for Bobby to encourage our youth to get outdoors and start fishing and introduce them to competitive bass fishing! With the help of the Bartow Yellow Jackets and the Lakeland Jr. Bass Masters he has provided a platform to raise money for scholarships for further education after high school!

The Goal of the Bobby Lane Cup is to further the love of fishing in our youth and to raise money to provide scholarships to those students involved in the sport of bass fishing.
