This sub forum was created to help our members find/fill a backseat or find a partner for an upcoming tournament. I get a lot of calls asking if I know anyone that has a backseat open or looking for a partner and unfortunately I can't get to them all on a timely basis. If you are new to the TTZ community introduce yourself on the forum and give a little history about your angling experience. It can be awkward getting into the boat with someone for the first time and any bit of info (pics, tournament/fishing experience, etc) will help break the ice. Also, offering up front to pay the tournament entry fee and/or splitting other expenses goes a long way. It's been said that finding a good fishing partner is often harder than finding a good mate...so ask yourself if you would ever go out with a person if they just posted their name and phone number. Whether you're a seasoned tournament angler or just starting out and wanting to learn more about tournament fishing (or fishing in general) we are here to help and look forward to meeting some new faces on the water!
