C & R Bass Anglers is a limited membership club comprised of individuals having a wide range of skill levels. Although each of us enjoys the competitive nature of the club through the tournaments we fish, we are also a teaching club…as interested in helping our less experienced members become better fishermen, as we are in learning from the more experienced among us. No matter what your skill level, someone else knows or has perfected a few tricks, tactics and techniques which may be unfamiliar to you. Finding fishermen who are willing to share that information can be difficult but not in our club.
If you are interested in some friendly, yet serious, quality competition and want the chance to learn from, as well as teach others, then this is the club for you.
We fish eight tournaments per year with your best six counting toward the end of year standings.
All tournaments are paper tournaments. However, a contestant’s largest fish must be weighed in to qualify for Big Bass.
Our tournaments are option tournaments: You may fish the Tournament only ($10.00), the Tournament & Big Bass ($15.00), the Tournament & the Money Pot ($30.00) or the Tournament, Big Bass and the Money Pot ($35.00). The option is yours.
A Big Bass Over 5lbs. pot is included in the tournament fee and is separate from the optional Tournament Big Bass above.
All tournaments are draw tournaments. The drawing is held at the club meeting closest to the tournament date.
To promote fishing new water, only one tournament from the current year may be repeated in the following year and no lake may be fished in three consecutive years.
C&R Bass Anglers Youth Club
We are also heavily involved with and in the development of our youth club. The youth Members range in age from 11 to 18 years and are divided into two competitive age groups.
These kids write their own rules, organize and run their own meetings and plan their own tournaments. They choose the water they will fish and what they will do while there. We provided guidance and direction as necessary, the boats for their tournaments and funding.
On the water our adult club members are allowed to give advice only if asked and required not to unduly influence the choices of our youth members. We do however aid them with and in the development of techniques and skills as well as fostering respect, sportsmanship and good conduct on the water.
Interested? Join us at one of our monthly meetings, held every second Wednesday of the month, 7:00 p.m., at the Watertown Conservation Club N8898 County Rd. E - Watertown, Wisconsin. Or, click on contact us and drop us a line with your questions.
