Who We Are – The Oakland County Bass Anglers is made up of Michigan sportsmen who are not only interested in bass fishing, but the promotion of our sport through friendly, competitive tournaments and the teaching of angling techniques to our members. Our membership ranges from 20 – 30 members each year, male and female, adults and Junior members 14-17 years old, and boat owners and non-boat owners alike.
Tournaments – This year, the club will have seven individual “points” tournaments, one team tournament, two catch and release tournaments, a two-day Classic tournament and also participate in the Michigan Bass Invitational tournament. Points tournaments are open to club members only, but a guest may fish with prior approval. Our catch and release tournaments are open to anyone (non-members) who fish with a club member. Non-boat owning members are paired with a boat owner for each tournament. Our tournaments are low key, and we stress sportsmanship and fun for all. You can see our events schedule here.
Meetings – Club meetings are held the second Tuesday of every month at Bass Pro Shops, 4500 Baldwin Rd., Auburn Hills, MI 48326. During the fishing season, we recap each tournament, discussing where and how fish were caught. During the winter months we have guest speakers and watch instructional fishing videos. Please contact us before attending a meeting.
Costs – Annual $75 membership dues, mostly covering the member’s banquet meal and trophy costs. Dues are reduced for Junior members under 18 years old. The only other required cost is the nominal riders fee for non-boat owners for each tournament to help share expenses.
Awards Banquet – Annual member banquet held at the close of the fishing season usually in October. A full meal, is served and trophies are awarded at the banquet.
Trophies – Trophies are awarded to 1st place finishers in each of the club tournaments along with other club categories. Patches are also awarded.
By-Laws – Our club is governed by by-laws that have been developed over the years.
