Back to you newcomers...there are several areas that you will find interesting at, perhaps the most popular is the News Section, here you will find up to the minute information about tournaments, new products, industry news, and articles and information from your fellow fishermen. A few hints about some of the features available in the News Section:

  • You can click on the name of a specific organization listed on the lower right side and it will provide a listing of all the archived articles for that organization. Example: We have in our Newsroom 142 articles archived about Bassmasters for your use.

The Forums Section is for the fishermen to share ideas, questions, answers, really just about anything that is fishing related. There are lots of posts on tons of subject, you can spend hours browsing and commenting.

The Classified section is a free advertising space for non-commerical items. Advertise your boat, motors, rods, reels, lake house, whatever, just don't plan to start a on-line catalog store there. If it sounds commerical, our webmaster will remove it. (He's pretty tough).

The Tournament section is huge, it hosts many tournament organizations web pages, along with the searchable tournament database. Here you can search for tournaments by the date, lake or organization. At any one time there are anywhere from 400 to 1,000 tournaments listed. It changes often, so if you're into tournaments you'll want check this area often.
