For A Challenge Why Not Try Bass Fishing Tournaments

Aug 17, 2007
If you are someone who takes his fishing a little more seriously than the next person and you need more challenges than fishing for leisure gives you then you probably already know about the different bass fishing tournaments that are happening around the world. But for all you novices out there that are in need of a little more excitement then I'll fill you in.

Bass fishing tournaments are where anglers are in competition with one another to catch the heaviest volume of bass within a certain amount of time. This is a very challenging competition. You must be a pretty good angler and know the best places to fish plus you need a strategy to follow. You must be careful to keep your catch alive as well because if they die they are not counted in the weigh up at the end of the time limit. Then all your hard work was for nothing.

Not every angler enjoys fishing like this, as it can be too challenging and fast paced. Many fishing enthusiasts prefer to just sit quietly on the banks or in a boat and fish. That's the good thing about fishing, there is something to suit everyone. Bass fishing tournaments are also great to watch on tv. There are many fishing shows on television these days and they are very exiting to watch.

One of the bigger tournaments of this kind is the Bassmasters Challenge and this is held in North America. This is a high standard tournament that brings in the very top anglers to compete against one another. If this type of fishing competition is for you then you can participate with other like-minded fishermen in smaller bass fishing tournaments run by different fishing associations. There may be an association that runs these in your home town.

If you already belong to an association or club then you should be able to find out through them or check out the many magazines that are all about angling. Of course, the internet is a great source of information as well. If you can stand the pressure of competing within a time limit and you have the right equipment and are knowledgeable about this type of fishing then by all means go ahead and have a go. You could become the next champion!

But then again if you just prefer to go somewhere to fish plain and simply for relaxation purposes then of course, do that too. Fishing in itself is challenging enough whether you are in a race or just passing the time away. Most people will be just as happy to catch one fish as apposed to catching many. What ever you decide to do I wish you good luck.
