The Junior Bassmaster program is our entry level program intended to target anglers who are not yet in high school. Each Junior Bassmaster club is sponsored & mentored by one of the Maine B.A.S.S. Nation adult clubs. The Junior Bassmaster club elects its own officers and runs its own club meetings with assistance of adult advisors. The purpose of the club is to provide a venue where youth can improve their skills as anglers, learn & exchange fishing techniques and information, learn responsibility and teamwork by operating the club, and learn sportsmanship and act as stewards for conservation and youth involvement in fishing. Clubs are encouraged to be family oriented and focus more on fun and learning, than on competition. The Junior Bassmaster State championship provides members of all the Junior Bassmaster clubs opportunity to test their skills against the fish & each other.
For membership information – please contact the Maine B.A.S.S. Nation Youth director.
B.A.S.S. High School Nation
The B.A.S.S. High School Nation is a new program that will help shape the future of the sport, one high school club at a time.
The High School clubs will enjoy camaraderie and competition, as well as education and conservation programs.
As part of the B.A.S.S. High School Nation, young anglers can compete in the B.A.S.S. High School Nation Open and compete in State Championships to qualify for the B.A.S.S. High School Nation Championship, the first of which was held in 2014.
Teen anglers can also attend the High School Elite Experience, a free opportunity for anglers who live near certain Bassmaster Elite Series tour stops. We appreciate your interest.
Maine B.A.S.S. Nation College Fishing
The Carhartt Bassmaster College Series presented by Bass Pro Shops gives college anglers a platform for competing with their peers in a national setting.
Anglers can compete in one of five regionals and in a Wild Card tournament, and in State B.A.S.S. Nation events for the opportunity to advance to the national championship.
From there, one college angler earns a coveted berth in bass fishing’s biggest tournament, the Bassmaster Classic.
