The Maine B.A.S.S. Nation is actively involved in our Maine government and the issues we face and we need you to join our organization,the Maine B.A.S.S. Nation, in show of support for the right to fish.

Why join a fishing club?

Joining a fishing club can help you refine your skills.

One day we were flipping through the channels on the TV and saw the The Bassmasters. From there we logged onto Bassmaster.com and had our first look at this whole new world of fishing. We immediately became members. We read every book and article and watched every video we could get our hands on. We also subscribed to every fishing magazine that came our way. We spent the entire winter learning as much as possible about bass fishing. We also spent the winter upgrading our equipment to better compliment all of the new tips and techniques we were learning about. We replaced our small fishing boat with a used bass boat so we could start fishing bigger bodies of water. Read more on Bassmaster.com
