Here Are All the US Colleges That Have Affiliated Bass Fishing Teams [PICS]

Listed state by state, and college by college, here are all of the intercollegiate bass fishing teams in the continental U.S.

Ever since the Bass Anglers Sportsman Society (B.A.S.S.) was incorporated by Ray Scott back in 1968, bass fishermen everywhere have been better off for it.

After many years and many changes B.A.S.S. started to affiliate bass fishing at the collegiate level with the Carhartt Bassmaster College Series.

Looking for a place to go to college? Well, maybe one of these schools will whet your appetite for a higher education and a serious (totally serious) bass fishing experience.
