B.I.T.E. (Bass Information from Tournament Entries) Program


Bass clubs have an opportunity to help the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency monitor bass populations. 

We ask bass clubs and tournament organizations to share tournament results for all tournaments held on Tennessee reservoirs.   Data will be recorded in the B.I.T.E. (Bass Information from Tournament Entries) program.  State fisheries biologists use this information, along with other sampling data, to document trends in bass populations.   The Agency needs the support of every bass club and organization in Tennessee to make the program a success.   If you are a tournament angler, urge your tournament director to submit your club’s tournament results 

Bass clubs choosing to participate in B.I.T.E. can submit their tournament data via the online reporting system. For more information, please contact the TWRA Fisheries Management Division at (615) 781-6575.
