Interested in forming a bass fishing club at your school? Perhaps you'll do as well as a two brother team from the Barnwell County Career Center Bass Fishing Club who competed in the 2011 High School Fishing World Finals this past July and came in seventh out of 101 teams from around the United States.

All you need to do is get a minimum of six students (within the 11-18 year old range) with dues paid and you can have a Youth Bass Fishing Club. You'll also need an adult at your school to help lead the club, provide advice and help arrange at least two club tournaments, fundraisers, speakers and other learning sessions pertaining to fishing for club meetings.

The Youth Bass Fishing Clubs is a product of a partnership between the S.C. Department of Natural Resources and The Bass Federation of South Carolina with help and support from parents, teachers, school districts, local bait & tackle shops, community partners and Pure Fishing.
