The Bass Federation

The Bass Federation Advance to Championship
Since 1968, the independent state The Bass Federation have worked together to support the grassroots growth of fishing and the growth of the entire sport fishing/outdoors industry in their states. Simply put, The Bass Federation, Inc. (TBF) and our affiliated state Federation’s do not work for any one organization in particular, although they do have several long-term relationships and partnerships in the industry. TBF is proudly partnered in fishing with the BoatUS Collegiate Bass Fishing Championship presented by Bass Pro Shops.
Both members of team MUST be registered Bass Federation members before the start of the tournament and win the BoatUS Collegiate Bass Fishing Championship.
The anglers will advance to The Bass Federation National Championship as a boater and non-boater. Opportunities exist there to move on and earn:
 – The Living the Dream Package
 – Forrest Wood Cup berth
 – Walmart BFL All-American berth
