All season long teams have been competing in the IBN Team Series to get a spot in the Toyota Bonus Bucks Bassmaster Team Championship. On August 23rd the final event of 6 in the 2015 season was held on the Illinois River out of Morris. In 2014 the series was able to send 2 teams to the Championship. The participation level in the IBN Team Series has grown again this year and for 2015 we will be sending 3 teams to the Bassmaster Team Championship. The IBN Team Series is also paying the $500 entry fee for each team. The top 3 teams for 2015, by points are; Michael Kazmierczak and Michael Pappas, Mel Hedrick and Ed Trevino, Allen Williford and Austin Moore. Congratulations to our top 3 teams!

At the Toyota Bonus Bucks Bassmaster Team Championship they will compete for a spot in the 2016 Basmaster Classic. This year’s Championship will be held on Lake Guntersville in Alabama, December 9th – 12th. On behalf of the IBN Board of Directors and the Illinois Team Series tournament staff, good luck at Lake Guntersville!!!
