But you don’t have to be affiliated if you wish only to compete at the club level. We are a Club that makes Fishing and Friendly tournaments a part of our lives.

We have members from all over the Clearwater, Tampa area and are open to all ages. But currently mostly retired Fishermen that enjoy extra time at the lake.

To promote our state conservation department, our organized moral and political support. We meet at Rich’s BBQ on the first Friday of every month at 7 PM.

One of the oldest bass clubs in Central Florida and meets on the first Tuesday of each month. The canal fishing here in the really southern part of the state is a well-kept secret.

Home club of 2003 BASS Federation World Champion Jerry Shaver! “The Bass Federation” conducting scheduled club tournaments, aiding conservation groups, providing public awareness through public service announcements and protecting local fisheries for future anglers.
