Kettle Moraine Monday Evening Bass Tournaments was established in 2003 by Doug Duernberger.
The K.M.M.B.T. Bass fishing circuit fishes 15 tournaments throughout the course of the year on 8 different lakes, located in southeastern Wisconsin. A point system is used to determine the top six teams which then qualify for a FREE ENTRY into the Championship. Additional teams can buy in to the championship for $50 (per team) - if they have fished 85-90% of weekly tournaments - 13 of 15.
The team entry fee for club members is $50 dollars & $65 for non-club members, this includes entry into the BIG BASS POT.
The pay out is 85%, with 15% going towards the Championship prize purse and trophies. Big Bass is 100% pay out. Entry fee's are non-refundable.

1st Place: $195 dollars, 2nd Place: $145 dollars, 3rd Place: $115 dollars, 4th place : $90 dollars.
Payouts will be adjusted accordingly for tournaments with over 16 teams.

Weather / lightning rule:
During storms with lightning, teams may seek shelter as long as the following parameters are met; 1) No-wake rules are not broken, 2) their boat may not leave the water. If a boat exceeds no-wake rules, that team will be disqualified from the tournament.
A team may pull their boat from the water for inclement weather, but may not continue fishing once their boat is on the trailer. They cannot re-launch and fish after weather has passed. They will still be allowed to weigh in bass caught prior to pulling their boat from the water.

*Teams must catch a legal fish to place and gain points during the tournament. Teams catching no fish only gain the entry fee points ( 2 ). Ties will be broke as follows:
Most fish, then heaviest fish, then longest fish.
If a tie still exists after this, those teams equally get that placement of points.
Example: two teams have 3.75 lbs., both teams have a 2 lb. bass ( heaviest ) and length is the same...say 16", THAT NIGHT 3.75 LBS places 8th. Both teams gain 13 pts.
Additional bonus points: BIG BASS is worth* 2 points.
