High School Team Trail

Michigan B.A.S.S. Nation High School Team Trail Series logo
Michigan B.A.S.S. Nation hosts the Michigan B.A.S.S. High School Team Trail Series – 4 high school angler bass tournaments per year. High School teams accumulate points based on their finish in each tournament. For every 50 individual anglers that compete in at least one of the High School Team Trail tournaments we will qualify 1 team for the B.A.S.S. Nation High School Championship. The team(s) with the highest points will advance.

You must be a High School Nation member (grades 9 through 12) to participate. To register, see How to Start a Youth Club. Visit our High School Division page or contact our Youth Director for more information.

Upcoming High School Team Trail Events

The focus of the team trail is to challenge all anglers to utilize different fishing techniques in order to overcome the characteristics of each location. Although winning one or more of the tournaments is always good, consistency in all four of the tournaments is what rewards top finishing anglers.

There is no “Off-Limits” period prior to the date of any High School Team Trail tournament though anglers must be off the tournament waters at 5 PM the evening prior to the tournament.
