Robert “Mark” Peiser won the 2024 American Bass Anglers Professional League, Presented by Caymas Boats, Florida Central Division 6 season opener tournament, held January 13TH, 2024 on the Harris Chain of Lakes.

“I caught my fish on a Texas rig big worm in Lake Beauclair on a shellbed. I caught all my fish early, before 9:30 am then the wind changed direction from the North and the bite quit. I had caught two there in practice Thursday and I left it alone.“ Peiser said.

Unprecedented Rewards and Opportunities

The ABA Professional League offers an unparalleled payout structure, ensuring substantial rewards for participating anglers. The top prize for a one-day divisional event can reach a staggering $17,000, including the Caymas Cash program for Caymas Owners.

Fewer Road Blocks for the Angler

The Professional League is a Solo Series, anglers do not have to sign up with co-anglers whereas in many cases the boaters end up paying the co-anglers way. The only one anglers have to rely on is themselves. This is why the Professional League exists. If you have the aspiration of becoming a professional angler, you need to fish like a professional angler and develop the skills needed to compete against the best anglers in the country. This format will allow you to do what professional anglers do, rely on their own skills, and intuition without any interferences.

Strategic Points System and Flexibility

Anglers accumulate points based on their performance, with the system considering the best three one-day events and the best two-day event. This points system not only establishes national standings but also allows anglers the flexibility to compete in different divisions to boost their standings.

Upholding Fair Play

The ABA Professional League is committed to maintaining the integrity of the sport, with truth verification measures implemented to ensure a level playing field for all participants.

The Road to the 2025 Championship

The divisional points will become crucial as anglers set their sights on the 2025 Championship, where the title of Angler of the Year and a significant cash award will be at stake.
