The BassCats fishing team will be holding an informational/sign up meeting on Monday, August 6th at 6:00 pm in the cafeteria at BMS. If you plan to fish the 2018-2019 season you must attend meeting and sign up.
We already have schedules for the 2018-19 season and it begins in September. Here are some things to keep in mind so that if you are interested you can be ready for the meeting.
The main things are:
*You must be a student at Bainbridge High School, Bainbridge Middle School, or Hutto Middle School with at least a 2.0 GPA and clear discipline record
*Access to a boat with a working live well and no larger than a 250HP OUTBOARD motor.
*Access to a captain that is over the age of 21 and willing to drive the boat, be certified as a chaperone (background check), coach, but NOT FISH!
*A partner that is willing to be out in all weather, early, early in the morning to late in the afternoon with a PASSION for fishing!
At the meeting, the coach will try to match anglers so if they are looking for a partner those in need of a boat and captain are put with someone who has access to them.
We wish we had a fleet of boats, and captains to drive them so we could take every child that wants to join, but sadly we don’t.
If you are someone that has a boat and time on your hands that is willing to help us out, please feel free to come to the meeting or comment here so maybe someone can get in touch with you if they are looking for a captain. We travel all over Georgia (and occasionally, other states) so it is time consuming but well worth the reward of impacting students.
