Ohio Bass Clubs

There are two active bass club "federations" in Ohio - the Ohio B.A.S.S. Federation Nation (B.A.S.S.), and the Ohio Bass Federation (FLW). The majority of bass clubs in Ohio are affiliated with one or the other, although there are clubs in the state that elect not to affiliate with either organization. Bass clubs are a great way to participate in tournament bass fishing, meet a lot of great people, and learn more about the various waterways Ohio has to offer, as most clubs typically visit a number of different fisheries across the course of a season. Affiliated club members may also have the chance to qualify for higher-level events such as regional, state, and national tournaments, including the prestigous Bassmasters Classic. Additionally, nearly all clubs promote conservation as well as advancement of the sport.

Below you will find a directory of Ohio Bass clubs along with links to both federations. If you belong to a club and you don't see it here, please forward the information and we will get it listed ASAP.
