Association of Collegiate Anglers Announces the 13 Fishing Scholar Angler Award

‘Rewarding performance in the classroom, on the water, and around the community’

The 13 Fishing Scholar Angler Award is a partnership between 13 Fishing and the Association of Collegiate Anglers designed to reward student anglers for the impact they make on and off the water.

As student anglers, college fishermen and women put in a lot of hard work on the water and in the classroom, as well as amongst the community.  The ACA and 13 Fishing would like to acknowledge and recognize anglers throughout the school year for their efforts.  Anglers can apply or be nominated by coaches, peers, amongst others at this link.

Throughout the 2023-24 school year, nominees will be selected based upon the criteria listed below.  Anglers that are chosen to receive the 13 Fishing Scholar Angler Award will receive a 13 Fishing prize pack.
