The RBANS website was down and we did not even know this until just last week. The domain did not auto renew and through a rule of CIRA, it went into a holding pattern after 30 days last summer. We were not able to just renew it, we spent a week working with our registrar and had to let CIRA put our domain through an auction then release it before we could buy our site back lol, only in Canada eh. Bottom line, I have re-secured the site address and it is back up so over the next couple months we will update it for accuracy and leave it as is. If anyone had used the email, we are working on seeing if they have been saved or lost and we are checking to see if anyone may have used the online registration etc. If you did, bear with us while we straighten that all out as again, we do this on our very limited spare time.

Thanks, good thinking of fishing :)

My comment is one of the biggest risks to a good/great bass fishery is people keeping and killing the best fish in the lake, both legally and illegally.
It's great that bass have been accepted by more people, but the popularity does have a negative side. Trophy lakes like Lake Mush-a-Mush and the Mersey River get hit hard, with people catching and illegally keeping big bass with considerable regularity.
If DOF could do a couple of patrols by boat during the spawning season, it's pretty much guaranteed that they will be handing out some tickets and making arrests.

We are looking for any questions, comments, concerns or suggestions that you believe need to be raised with the NSDAF related directly to smallmouth bass management here in Nova Scotia. The club reps and stakeholders will soon be having a session with the key staff there and we are looking to ensure that we are offering up substantive and quality feedback for our bass fishery moving forward.

You can post here or send me a PM if you wish, thanks folks.

Premiere Bass Fishing Series Slated for the East Coast

Since the announcement of the first ever B1 OPENS event set for Fredericton, New Brunswick in October of next year, the response from Maritime bass anglers has been nothing short of overwhelming. So much so, that the B1 will be launching an all new, 4-event series, designed uniquely for the Atlantic Canadian market. For the first time in over 20 years, the B1 East Coast Series will offer an inter-provincial circuit that will incorporate venues in both New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, culminating in the crowning of a true East Coast Team of the Year Championship.

The series kicks off in early spring with a 2-day season opener during the pre-spawn period on the upper Saint John River also known as the Mactaquac Head Pond. Round 2 brings the series to Nova Scotia and Shubenacadie Grand Lake just outside of Halifax in mid-June.  For Round 3, City of Fredericton Government will play host on the Lower Saint John River towards the end of July. Finally, the Series finale will conclude on the Beechwood Head Pond on the Saint John River in Perth-Andover with a 2-day competition.

“There is no question that there is an incredible demand for premiere bass fishing competitions such as ours in the Maritimes” states Ben Woo, B1 President. “We have spent the last 3 years researching the market, forging new relationships with local anglers and municipalities and we strongly believe that Atlantic Canadian bass anglers are now ready to B the Ones.”

The new B1 ECS will feature the B1’s popular Garmin Livestream Weigh-Ins at all events along with a Live Leaderboard to keep track of the weights as they happen. Stunning photography courtesy of B1 photographers and even some Live On-Water footage to boot. For all intents and purposes, the ECS will be a scaled down version of the B1 OPENS tweaked into a format that is both sustainable and allows for growth. Maritime anglers will now have a platform by which they can promote themselves, their sponsors and the sport of bass fishing at a higher level.

Registration for the new East Coast Series is now open and available online only at Early Bird registration will be in effect until March 1st, 2019. Teams that register early for the entire series will benefit from a 1st pool blast-off position draw. All events are opens and no memberships are required. For more information on B1 Fishing Events, please refer to the B1 website.
