The Georgia Bass Federation supports the TBF Youth Fishing Program. Young people ages 11-15 are organized into official TBF Youth Clubs. Each club, although autonomous, is dedicated to promoting sportsmanship and developing character through the great sport of bass fishing. Currently, we sponsor four official clubs around the state of Georgia.
To be in good standing, each youth club must have and maintain a membership of at least six youths ages 11-15. Each club should elect officers from its membership and have an adult sponsor as a contact. Each club determines its own schedule and its top anglers, however; each club should fish at least one tournament each year on a state reservoir from bass boats. Each member must pay the youth membership fee of $25 to the TBF/GBF state secretary. This membership fee includes a magazine subscription and basic insurance for the club. There is no club fee.
Each year, the state sponsors a youth state championship tournament to which each club can send its top six anglers. A championship team is determined based on the total weight each team weights. An individual champion is also determined, and this champion gets to fish in the Junior World Championship held usually in August. The angler with the heaviest fish also receives an award. Groups wishing to organize into an official club should contact the state youth director, Bruce Pilgrim using the contact form below.
