WHAT:  The Bass Federation (TBF) and FLW, the world’s largest tournament-fishing organization, have partnered to present the 2014 Nebraska State High School Fishing Championship. The tournament is open to any High School Fishing team in the entire state of Nebraska. The 2014 schedule represents a major expansion of High School Fishing by FLW and The Bass Federation due to an increased demand.

WHEN:                 Saturday, July 26, 2014

WHERE:               Nebraska State High School Fishing Championship

Merritt Reservoir State Recreation Area, Bead’s Landing, Nebraska

The Nebraska state championship is a two-person (team) event for students in grades 9-12. Registration for anglers and their coach, who will provide the boat they compete in, is online at HighSchoolFishing.org. Takeoff will be at 7 a.m. and weigh-in will be held at the boat ramp, scheduled for 1:15 p.m. High School Fishing takeoffs and weigh-ins are free and open to the public. For more information about this event contact the TBF National Youth Director Mark Gintert at (580) 716-4251 or (330) 993-0014.

A preliminary list of schools participating will not be available as teams can still register up until the morning of the event.

The top 10 percent from each TBF/FLW state championship field will advance to a High School Fishing conference championship along with the top 3 teams from each of the six 2014 High School Fishing Opens that coincide with the 2014 Walmart FLW Tour. The top 10 percent of each conference championship field will then advance to the High School Fishing National Championship, coinciding with the TBF National Championship and an FLW Tour stop in the spring of 2015. The High School Fishing national champions will each receive a $5,000 college scholarship to the school of their choice.
