Will You Be The First Bass IQ Angler Of The Month?
High school bass anglers across the US are now eligible for the Bass IQ Angler Of The Month award, with the first monthly winner announced near the end of August 2018.
The Bass IQ AOTM will be selected from all high school anglers who have an active Bass IQ Angler Profile in the FREE High School Fishing App. These angler profiles are visible to Bass IQ staff, other app users, and a panel of college fishing coaches across the US. The AOTM winner will be selected based on the following criteria: Participating in the app (posting content), GPA, tournament performance/experience, and community involvement.
Bass IQ anglers are encouraged to use the app regularly, and post their fishing photos and videos in the app. Keeping the user profile updated is also important for consideration of awards. Summarize your tournament participation and performance, grade point average, community involvement, and upload your photos of choice. Think of this as a fishing resume that will be viewed by Bass IQ staff and the panel of college fishing coaches and recruiters.
Bass IQ Angler Of The Month awardees will win a college scholarship (more about Bass IQ Scholarships here) that can be used at the college of their choice when they become part of a US college bass fishing team. Each Bass IQ AOTM is then eligible for the Bass IQ Coaches’ Choice Angler Of The Year award.
The Bass IQ Coaches’ Choice Angler Of The Year is awarded to one worthy high school angler, selected from the previous AOTM winners in May of each year. This prestigious award comes with a $2,000 prize package (with scholarship) that can be used at any US college when angler enrolls and becomes part of a college bass fishing team.
High School anglers who do not plan to fish on a college team are still encouraged to get the app and use the app! We think all high school anglers will find value in using the FREE High School Fishing App.
Parents and coaches of high school anglers are encouraged to join the Bass IQ mailing list to be informed when new resources are added to the website.
Bass IQ was founded in 2017 by Tommy and Karen Hall with the mission of becoming a comprehensive source of information/education for high school fishing in the US. High school team resources, award opportunities, tournament and scholarship information, and even college and career information for the anglers who want to fish beyond high school can be found on the website www.BassIQ.com
