Welcome to the Florida B.A.S.S. Nation Web Site

Thank you for visiting our web site. The goal of this site is to make available as much information as possible to our members as well as provide a general understanding of the Florida B.A.S.S. Nation to new members and visitors.

Florida B.A.S.S. Nation MemberB.A.S.S. chapter members are our grass-roots fishermen dedicated to the future of bass fishing. They furnish manpower, money and equipment for lake clean-ups, promote catch-and-release, encourage community involvement, lobby for and against proposed legislation, introduce youth to fishing and even conduct tournament creel census reports.

Our nation members also have another common interest, tournament fishing. Every weekend our anglers enjoy the B.A.S.S. Nation National Tournament Trail.
It is the only amateur circuit that leads to the prestigious B.A.S.S. Masters Classic where they compete against the top 40 professional fishermen each year.

On this circuit, chapter members qualify through our state for a slot on our state team. Our state team then competes against other state teams at the B.A.S.S. Central Divisional Championships. At this tournament the contenders compete as a team for the prize money, but the top individual from each state team advances to the B.A.S.S. Nation National Championship. At this National Championship tournament the contenders compete against all of the other divisional qualifiers and against the other contenders in their division. The top individual from each division advances to the BASS Masters Classic.

Today our Nation members are actively pushing for better conservation practices, introducing kids to fishing, conducting community service projects and promoting fishing throughout their communities. Because of the hard work and dedication of our nation members the future of fishing looks bright!

**High School/Junior Press Release**

The FBN would like to welcome Shimano as our Title sponsor for the 2016-2017 Florida Bass Nation High School and Junior Series.

Shimano would like to announce that the points champions (Team of the Year) in the Florida Bass Nation from both the Junior and High School divisions will be outfitted with logo'd jerseys and a spread of Shimano gear.

In addition, Shimano will be awarding a Shimano Caenan or Casitas reel with a Loomis E6X rod to each member of the winning team in the Jr and High School divisions. The rod and reel will be shipped to the local Shimano dealer from where the anglers reside and they can claim their prizes there.

Shimano will also have a presence at the events including equipment to demo.

**Kevin's Gun and Sporting Goods in Tallahassee will be conducting a drawing on Monday after the tournament for a rod/reel combo. You will be automatically entered if you shop in his store before the event and let Kevin know. **
