The Growing Sport of College Bass Fishing

We take a look at one of the fastest growing segments of competitive angling…collegiate bass fishing. Collegiate bass fishing provides thousands of student anglers at hundreds of colleges and universities with the opportunity to continue their education and earn a degree while also being able to represent their university and pursue a career in the fishing industry. The Bass Pro Shops Collegiate Bass Fishing Series is the premiere major collegiate tournament trail in the country. Hosting no-entry-fee events, each tournament boasts a loaded field competing for prize payouts valued at over $20,000 in prizes and contingencies. Watch as we take a closer look at college fishing, highlight the three events from this past season, and award the Bass Pro Shops School of the Year presented by Abu Garcia.
