A change in the Angler of the year is in effect

Each regional Angler of the year will compete at the State Championship against the 3 other regional anglers of the year to determine the Florida State Angler of the Year just like last year....What has changed is the Regional Anglers of the Year will have their Full Entry Fees paid to the State Tournament. Plus State Anglers of the Year will earn a spot on the Florida State Team!  ...It will be important for everyone to fish all of the Tournaments and try and be Angler of the Year...Its one more step towards a Bassmaster Classic spot......This applies to both the Boater and Non Boater winners.

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!
