About Iowa Bass Nation

Since the early 70's Iowa B.A.S.S. Nation has provided a Grassroots connection to Bass Anglers Sportsman Society.  With clubs across the state of Iowa we provide many avenues to compete in bass fishing tournaments throughout the state of Iowa.  With an opportunity to advance on to regional and national tournaments run B.A.S.S.  Our members have the opportunity to advance to the highest level of the tournament ranks as the professionals and compete with the pros on the biggest stage in bass fishing, the Bassmasters Classic.

For more than 30 years, the B.A.S.S. Nation has been more than a name. It has been a community united by a sense of camaraderie and a spirit of belonging to something unique that carries from generation to generation. Over the years, members have decided to join the B.A.S.S. Nation for many reasons other than exciting tournament fishing. The vision of true pioneers in our history — Ray Scott, Don ...Butler and many others — established conservation and a focus on building youth programs in addition to fishing competitions as areas critical to the viability of the sport and our lifestyle. B.A.S.S. Nation members, as well as B.A.S.S. employees and sponsors, have given tirelessly to the sport and the vision of these pioneers.
THE ROAD TO THE CLASSIC

Rising through the ranks of the B.A.S.S. Nation to compete in bass fishing's most prestigious tournament takes dedication and perseverance, but the rewards for advancing to the next level are great. The steps from local club to Classic are presented below:


CLUBS AND STATE CHAPTERS:  Anglers qualify through their local clubs for the State Team Qualifier Tournaments. Local clubs along with the State Chapter determine the qualifying format on the state level. The State Chapters of the B.A.S.S. Nation hold State Team Qualifier(s) to qualify a 12-person team plus two juniors and two alternates.  States determine the qualifier format for their state.

DIVISIONALS:  B.A.S.S. invites each B.A.S.S. Nation state chapter to bring a 12-person team plus two juniors and two alternates to one of 6 (six) B.A.S.S. Nation Divisionals. Format of the divisional are determined by B.A.S.S. The purpose of the divisional is to qualify one person from each state for the B.A.S.S.  Nation Championship. The divisional is a "team" tournament. Prizes are awarded to the teams only. The highest finishing person from each team will qualify for the B.A.S.S. Federation Nation Championship.

B.A.S.S. NATION CHAMPIONSHIP:  Currently 47 B.A.S.S. State Nations and seven B.A.S.S. International Nations compete within one of the 6 (six) divisions to qualify for the Bassmaster Classic. The anglers compete individually in this tournament to determine a champion, however, the highest finishing angler within each of the 6 (six) divisions will earn a berth into the Bassmaster Classic.

BASSMASTER CLASSIC:  6 (six) anglers qualify through the B.A.S.S. Nation Championship to fish the Bassmaster Classic.
