All about Jr. Bassmaster
One of the most dynamic and exciting opportunities BASS has created for Junior anglers is the Junior Bassmaster World Championship! Just like Mom or Dad competing in the BASS Federation Nation club competitions, this program allows Junior members to compete in a club level, ultimately qualifying for their Junior Bassmaster State Championship
The Fighting Fishsticks, is a Junior Bass Club based in Northern Colorado. This is a kids club and is sponsored by the Centennial Bass Club of Northern Colorado and affiliated with B.A.S.S. (Bass Anglers Sportsmans Society). Juniors range from 7 to 18 years of age, and all kids compete in 4 tournaments per year. Kids from 11 – 14, and 15 – 18, compete in the 4 tournaments to qualify for a chance to fish in the State Championship and compete with other kids from around the State. The 1st place Junior from each division will be chosen from the State tournament to compete at the Western Divisionals against other juniors from the western states. Finally the winner from each age division at the Divional level will go to nationals and a chance to compete with juniors from throughout the United States.
Along with the 4 tournaments per year, the club also holds fishing outings and business meetings where we discuss Conservation Projects, Fund Raisers, etc. The club also has presentations from some of Colorado’s top anglers, DOW, and other conservation entities. The Juniors are introduced to the importance of conservation, wildlife, fishing, plus tips for fishing and how to be ambassadors for our sport. This is a great opportunity for the juniors to meet others that have the same desire for our sport.
To join the Northern Colorado Junior Bass Club you and a parent need to attend a tournament, outing, or meeting, where you can fill out an application and release form which is signed by you and your parent or guardian, there is also a $20.00 sign up fee which $10.00 goes to BASS for your membership, and $10.00 goes into the clubs general fund.
During all outings, tournaments, etc. we also ask for the parents to attend to assist their junior bassmaster with fishing, measuring, or weighing of fish and just to be there to help supervise. We have members of the adult club there but usually not enough to watch every junior bassmaster. We encourage the parents to show up for each meeting where we teach the parents and kids fishing techniques and especially pass along information to the parents to help them teach there junior bassmaster how to fish.
