Nebraska B.A.S.S. Federation Nation News & General Information

10/01/17: Next Director's meeting will be Sunday, 08 October, at 10:00 AM, at the usual place in Grand Island.


9/05/17: "Please find attached a press release that will go out at 10:00am CT. I wanted you all to see it first. As you can see, there will still be 9 Open events, but 4 events per division, two divisions, and an Open Championship.


I know I told you a couple of years ago that everything was be revamped to get the classic down to 50, and this will do that. There will be 2 less spots coming from the Opens.


I really like this new format and it will make the Opens very exciting!


The B.A.S.S. Nation is still the most economical way to make it to the Classic or the Elite’s and if Brandon Palaniuk wins AOY, I am hopeful he will spread the word that he got to the elites through the B.A.S.S. Nation.


Have a great day!"


Jon Stewart

Director, B.A.S.S. Nation

5/16/17: President Joe Citta emailed me this invitation for a few tournaments with the Colorado ABA, to be held on Lake McConaughy:  Read for yourself:

I am the Director of American Bass Association in Colorado. I bring 2 events to Lake Mcconaughy this year at the request of some of the anglers. I will be there on June 3rd and July 15th. I am wondering if you can put the word out to your anglers about these two events. If you guys already have events on these dates i am sorry. I understand if you don't want to but i would really appreciate it.

If you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask

Thank You

11/19/16: Dave McCoy's (boater) and Lee Wubbels' (co-angler) runs ended Friday (11/18) at the B.A.S.S. Nation Nationals at Lake Conroe, Texas.  Dave ended up 21st on the boater side with 13 pounds 9 ounces (4 fish) and Lee finished 13th on the Co side with 8-12 (3 fish).  Full results can be found here.  The event through the first two days was a very tough venue; very few limits were had and the vast majority of anglers blanking or bringing only one fish across the stage.

Even though neither of our anglers will be fishing on Saturday, the Nebraska Nation is very proud of their efforts and accomplishments.  Just making it to this level is an amazing feat! If you run into Dave or Lee, be sure to congratulate them on a job well-done!
