Procedures for Submitting Bass Tournament Results to the BASS INFORMATION from TOURNAMENT ENTRIES (B.I.T.E.) Program Using the Online System
Please complete all requested information for any black bass tournaments held in Tennessee. (Note that you can use your “tab” button to move to the next entry). Be sure to include contact information, including an E-mail address so we can contact you if we have any questions regarding the data, and to send you the end-of-the-year report when it is completed.
If possible, enter your results weekly or monthly while the information is fresh on your mind. If this timing is not possible, you may submit your reports at the end of your fishing season, preferably by December 1st.
If you have several reports to submit:
Fill in the data for your first report and click the “Submit” button at the bottom of the page. After you click “Submit” you will see “Thank You”, click “Continue” to finish. Click "continue" only if you have no more tournament data to submit, otherwise see the next step.
Click the “Back” button of your browser and it will take you back to the data you just entered and submitted.
Change the information in the appropriate fields such as “Reservoir/Lake” name, “Date” and the catch statistics, leaving other information such as your club/organization name and address the same. (Note that you can either double-click or highlight the data to be changed, and the new data you type will overwrite it).
Click the “Submit” button again to send the new data. Repeat as often as necessary to get all your tournament results entered. If you have suggestions on improvements of this data entry form or format, or have general comments, please include them at the bottom of the report form.
