Louisiana Bass Nation 2015 Spring and Fall Tournaments. See info

For new clubs wanting to join the Nation, they will need to follow the instructions provided on the link below. (This can be found on bassmaster.com, under NATION, then choosing the option....Start a new club.)

The instructions are pretty detailed and they have a great staff that can help through the process as they need it.  Every club must go through this step at the beginning.  BASS Nation dues are $30 to BASS and $25 to the state. (Per member).  For the initial start of the club, they can make a copy of the roster filled out for BASS and send one copy to BASS and one copy to us.  In the future as their officers update rosters on the web, they can simply export the roster into an excel file and send that to us with their dues.

I am not certain, but I do not think we have any other forms to fill out other than what they will get in their Club starter package from BASS.  Kevin can correct me on any of this as its been roughly 7 years since I messed with starting a new club.  As for where to send the information and dues, of course they will send one to BASS, and the one to the state can be sent to either myself, or Kevin, however he wants to handle it at this point.  I will provide my contact information for ya'll.  Tournament Entries will follow the same guidelines we all currently follow, due date one week prior to the qualifiers.

Let me know if I left anything open ended.

Thanks,

Ryan Lavigne

BASS BASICS, A new feature of ACADIANABASS to help new bass fishermen read about the basics or seasoned fishermen who would like to brush up. These are the beliefs that I have used to guide me in this exciting passtime. They will be covered by the four seasons that bass use to survive. Choose the season:

The area clubs had a shootout Sunday, March 23, at Lake Fausse point, called the Top Ten Tournament. So called because the top 10 fishermen in each club represented the club in this event.

Catahoula Bass Association came out first. Followed by last year's winner, Lipari Hog Fighters. Louisiana Bass Cats came in third and Coteau Bass Hustlers took fourth. This was a fun event where everyone caught fish. The standings change from year to year. This was Catahoula's year, congratulations!
