New for 2020 will be the return of the “state team event”. It has been a few years since we have hosted this event; it was always a great event, but participation slowed and the event didn’t carry on. So that being said we are going to try to host this event again and hope the clubs sign up and enjoy it. For 2020 the event will be held on the Mon River out of the Labelle Access in the 10 Mile Pool on July 12, 2020. The format will be as follows:

More great news……Our great friends at Toyota will continue their Toyota Bonus Bucks program for the B.A.S.S. Nation in 2020. There is an opportunity for good money to be earned for your anglers and for your as a state with their “Matching Funds” program. Please make sure you read the program details and make sure all your Toyota Owners that are on your state team are registered. It could mean big bucks for them and matching funds for your state.

At all three regular season state events, PA Bass Nation will be accepting donations for the Youth/High School program. Ernie and Phil, our youth/high school tournament directors, are always in need of giveaways for his events. This is a perfect way to help out and give something back and help out the kids in our organization. There will be a donation bin at all three events. We will be accepting donated items such as rods and reels, baits and line, t-shirts and hats, etc. – really anything fishing related that can be used as a giveaway.
Thanks in advance for supporting our youth and high school program.
