The Florida B.A.S.S. Nation High School Series.
High School Bass Fishing is here to stay in Florida. B.A.S.S. and the Florida B.A.S.S. Nation are committed to the young anglers in the state. We at the FBN will be running a Tournament Trail next year just for High school anglers. Here is the information packet on how to start your own High School Club!!
Remember we are hosting an OPEN team event for High School students on March 30 on Lake Toho. It is open to any two high school kids. They must attend the same High School but do not have to be a member of a B.A.S.S. High School club. Registration will be at The Heritage Park Inn in Kissimmee on Friday March 29th at 6pm. It is OPEN to any two high school anglers provided they attend the same school. Please download the entry form here and mail to the address on the form.
If you have any questions, please contact me.

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.
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 federation 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
On this circuit, chapter members qualify through
our state federation 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 National Federation 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 federation members the future of fishing looks bright!
