The Baitfuel Fishing Tour Story

Baitfuel Fishing Tour is excited to launch our inaugural season in 2023. Baitfuel Fishing Tour will strive to set the standard of live release tournament bass fishing in Eastern Ontario, while enhancing the 25-year legacy of Renegade Bass Tour (RBT). By choosing the St. Lawrence River system as exclusive waters for all Baitfuel Fishing Tour events, participating anglers, supporters and sponsors will be rewarded with world class bags resulting in thrilling weigh-ins. In setting a 65 boat field maximum, Baitfuel Fishing Tour anglers will be guaranteed quality competition as they chase the qualifier prizes and the opportunity to participate in the Bass Cat/Mercury boat/motor package draw at the season ending “2023 Baitfuel Fishing Tour Championship.”

Tournament Locations

Site selection for Baitfuel Fishing Tour events was based on proven past experiences in Cornwall and Morrisburg (2023 qualifiers) and Gananoque (2023 classic). To anchor our St. Lawrence system presence, Baitfuel Fishing Tour welcomes Trenton/Quinte West and Cardinal/Edwardsburgh as tour partners. Measured as the crow flies, Baitfuel Fishing Tour host sites cover a whopping 324 km of the St. Lawrence system end to end!!! This guarantees anglers will be tested in their knowledge, skills and adaptability event to event on the road to being named "2023 Baitfuel Fishing Tour Champions".
