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.
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 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
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!
