Top Bass Tournament Trail is a open singles tournament trail based in the state of Michigan. Top Bass was created by fishermen for fishermen with a payout meant to reward the fishermen with the support of our sponsors. Top Bass has grown over the past years to become Michigan's Premier Tournament Circuit! 

This is our 27th year for our Top Bass Tournament Trail! What an accomplishment and it wouldn’t be possible without our dedicated anglers and Elmer Daniels of course!  This guy has built an amazing Tournament Trail with some of the best fisherman in the state. The sponsors we have accumulated over the years separates us from everyone and again none of this is possible without you anglers so let’s make this a great year.
