Sign up for high school bass fishing state championship

The Bass Federation and FLW will host the 2014 Student Angler Federation Idaho High School State Championship on Sunday, June 29 at the Air Force Ramp on C.J. Strike Reservoir near Mountain Home.

The 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 at highschoolfishing.org. Students and parents can get more details there. Cost is $25 per year. 

"We highly encourage all teams to pre-register on the website to avoid late registration fees," tournament officials said. 

Check-in is June 29 at 6 a.m. to 6:30 a.m. with the rules meeting to immediately follow the check-in.  The weigh-in will be at 3 p.m.

"State championships allow every Student Angler Federation member in North America the opportunity to fish in a championship tournament setting," TBF National Youth Director, Mark Gintert, said. "This year, with the help of our partners at FLW, we're expanding the program again by offering more advancement opportunities based on field size. In 2014, the top 10 percent of the field will advance. This rewards areas of the country working hard to grow the sport of high school fishing."
