Approved Bump Boards

To keep things as fair as possible we are now requiring that everyone use an approved bump board during the tournaments.  Bent Rods allows the  Ketch and Hawg Trough as bump boards for Bent Rods Bass Club Tournaments.   Yellow or White Hawg Trough are allowed.  Any color but black is allowed with the Ketch board.

We encourage all teams to purchase their own bump board before tournament season starts. We will try and have a couple of loaners at each tournament but please don’t count on them being available.

The Ketch bump board can be ordered online at
Bent Rod members get a discount, please contact board member for code.

For the Hawg Trough purchase the one in inches with blackened numbers and then use a black sharpie on the ridge lines this will help the tournament director when he is reviewing your photos.

Below demonstrates the proper way to photograph your catch.
