The NBSFA is a registered “not for profit” smallmouth bass fishing tournament series which pursues the sport of bass fishing while promoting Catch and Release to increase conservation of our resource for future anglers to enjoy. Our Association strives to introduce many to the sport of bass angling and ultimately to tournament angling. We collaborate with private and government agencies to help fund studies on smallmouth bass in our waterways, standardizing tournament rules to increase boater/angler safety and working to improve state of the art fish handling methods to minimize fish mortality at all tournament events.
