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, boat owners and non-boat owners alike. We also accept Junior members between 14 and 17 years old.
Tournaments – This year, the club will have seven individual tournaments, one team tournament, two catch and release tournaments and a two-day Classic tournament. Tournaments are open to club members only, but a guest may fish with advance approval. We also have catch and release tournaments that are open to anyone (non-members) who fish with a club member. Non-boat owning members are paired with a boat owner for each of the tournaments. Our tournaments are low key, and we stress sportsmanship and fun for all. You can see our events schedule above.
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.
Membership Dues – Annual $75 membership dues. Dues are reduced for Junior members (under 17 years old).
Awards Banquet – Annual member banquet held at the close of the fishing season. Trophies are awarded to the winners of each of the club tournaments.
Community Involvement – For more than 10 years the Oakland County Bass Anglers have held a charity tournament for local children.
Trophies – Trophies are awarded to 1st place finishers in each of the club tournaments along with other club categories.
By-Laws – Our club is governed by by-laws that have been developed over the years.
