Indian River Bass Anglers invites everyone to visit and join our club We created a High School and Junior Bass Fishing Club. 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 created by WFL and TBF. Juniors are ages 11 to 15 before August 31st and high school are ages 16 to their first semester in college. The cost for Juniors and High School students is $25 to the TBF and $20 to the club. Parents or family to fish with the students will be $20 to the club until November when the fees include FLW, TBF, FL Bass Federation and the club.


There were changes in the club rules this year. No change in the selection of the whole 2019 year of the lakes and ramps with dates to allow for getting permits from FWC. The new 2019 schedule is for every third Saturday throughout the year except for the Classic, date not chosen. New items to vote for will befor 1) early check in time for June, July and August; 2) guests will be allowed to fish two tournaments, and 3) two teams fishing on the same boat no longer can share the weight for each team. The two different team members will pay separate team entry fees and keep their fish separate for weigh in.
