Indian River Bass Anglers invites everyone to visit and join our club. We are looking at creating a High School and Junior Bass Fishing teams.

This will allow parents to fish with their children and teach them about bass fishing and bass tournaments. These clubs will allow of our younger club members to compete in various Junior and High School Bass Tournaments held in Florida and larger events.
