Coaching / Fishing / Mentoring

Becker Bass Team provides opportunities to fish, learn and grow as an angler and a young adult.  Our coaching philosophy is that we help everyone from novice to more experienced fisherman.  This includes the coaches, boat captains, and students.  We do this by:


  • Meetings and Training Sessions 
    • Held at the High School classrooms and auditorium focus on safety, professionalism, environment and fishing tips/techniques.   At times we are fortunate enough to have industry experts and professional fisherman come in and teach.
  • Local Lake Fishing and Practice
    • New for 2018 We will be utilizing our coaches to provide hands on fishing sessions concentrating on presentation, lure selection, technique, lake presence, and tournament preparation.
  • Local Lake Fishing Competitions!
    •  This is a friendly competition with prizes for big bass and best 5 fish / boat.  Members with boaters safety certificate can drive their own boats.  At our monthly meetings we recap who / how / why we caught fish providing a great opportunity to learn from each other and improve our fishing knowledge and techniques. We utilize this to prepare for tournament competition.
  • Fishing Tournaments - Official B.A.S.S. High School or The Bass Federation  Student Angler Federation (TBF/SAF) sanctioned tournaments.  Winners can advance to State and National Championship Tournaments.  Anglers must have an adult (Boat Captain) with them during these events.
