NNPBS Classic – October 14th & October 15th, 2023

There were 5 tournaments full of solid anglers trying to qualify for this, the NNPBS Classic.  Then a Wildcard event to get in too, but here you are, you’ve made it.  Now you get to fish two days in two different pools to win the right to called the Classic Winners of 2023.  But not so fast, there are 20 other teams who made it through as well, you and your partner have your hands full.  Welcome to the Classic, better be on your game for this one!

River Strategy For Teams In The Hunt

The top secret baits and oh so quiet little honey holes will all be called upon for this one.  The top teams will discuss their strategy and how they plan to win the big cash prize!  To win this one two pounders won’t do, no, this one will be the hunt for five kickers two days in a row.  The weigh ins will be awesome and the bass better be on the lookout, the Classic is finally here!

Who Is NNPBS & How Does It Work?

No Nonsense Prairie Bass Series (NNPBS) kicks off their third year of Mississippi river bass tournaments!  Launching from Prairie Du Chien, Wisconsin.  These have become very popular tournaments as anglers must stay on Pool 10 and your chances of winning go up as anglers must fish the same areas.

NNPBS is a points based series that rewards the top 20 point leaders to fish a “Classic” event at the end of the season.  This Classic is a no entry fee tournament and only the top 20 teams are allowed to fish.

New for 2023 is the “Wildcard Tournament”.  While yet to be defined, this event is likely a last chance for the non top 20 teams to get into the Classic.

NNPBS History

NNPBS showed no signs of a sophomore slump in their second season of tournaments.  The number of boats continued to exceed 60 in most events and even 70 in others.  Eric Johnston and Adam Farmer team up with their immediate families and close friends to put on an extremely well organized bass series.


Launching orders are decided via random draws that are live on Facebook the Thursday before the event.  This normally takes place at one of the sponsors facilities and anglers attending often get up to 15% discounts.

Launch and weigh in procedures are well organized.  Anglers are asked to arrive early and get their bass boats in the water to avoid delays.  Weigh Ins are prompt, organized and again live fed from Facebook.  A large LED sign shows the weights as the fish cross the scales and Eric is easily heard via a microphone and speaker.  The calculations are fairly timely considering there are over 60 teams and winnings processed at the events.

This series continues to impress and the NNPBS founders remain angler oriented while loyal to their sponsors.
