A Message from Youth Director, Frank Villa

The Fighting Fishsticks, is a Junior Bass Club based in Northern Colorado. This is a kids club and is sponsored by the Centennial Bass Club of Northern Colorado and affiliated with B.A.S.S. (Bass Anglers Sportsmans Society).  Juniors range from 7 to 18 years of age, and all kids compete in 4 tournaments per year.  Kids from 11 – 14, compete in the 4 tournaments to qualify for a chance to fish in the State Championship and compete with other kids from around the State.  The 1st place thru 4th place Juniors  will be chosen from the State tournament to compete at the BASS Junior Nationals against other juniors from the Nation.

Along with the 4 tournaments per year, the club also holds fishing outings and business meetings where we discuss Conservation Projects, Fund Raisers, etc.  The club also has presentations from some of Colorado’s top anglers, DOW, and other conservation entities.  The Juniors are introduced to the importance of conservation, wildlife, fishing, plus tips for fishing and how to be ambassadors for our sport.  This is a great opportunity for the juniors to meet others that have the same desire for our sport.

To join the Northern Colorado Junior Bass Club you and a parent need to attend a tournament, outing, or meeting, where you can fill out an application and release form which is signed by you and your parent or guardian, there is also a $37.00 sign up fee which $10.00 goes to BASS for your membership, 17.00 to the Colorado Bass Nation State dues and $10.00 goes into the clubs general fund.  

During all outings, tournaments, etc. we also ask for the parents to attend to assist their junior bassmaster with fishing, measuring, or weighing of fish and just to be there to help supervise.  We have members of the adult club there but usually not enough to watch every junior bassmaster.  We encourage the parents to show up for each meeting where we teach the parents and kids fishing techniques and especially pass along information to the parents to help them teach there junior bassmaster how to fish.
