ASU Bass Fishing Team

A Chance To Go Beyond The Books

The purpose of the Bass Fishing Club at Arizona State University is to promote collegiate bass fishing within the ASU community and throughout Arizona. The club has tournaments throughout the year to ultimately find the top four anglers from ASU to represent the university at collegiate fall championships such as those held by FOX College Sports and possibly the ESPNU Collegiate Championship.

This club is established to teach the members more about the sport of bass fishing recreationally as well as competitively. Overall, this club exists to help students enjoy the sport of bass fishing and represent the university across the nation.

In September, the ASU Bass Fishing Team sent Jason Rayls, Brent Perkins, Mitch Kistner, and Craig Carroll to represent ASU at the Fox College Sports National Collegiate Championship at Lake Lewisville, Texas. Leading up to the tournament were many hours of practicing and competing in club tournaments, working on strengths, and strengthening weaknesses.
