Welcome to the Kansas B.A.S.S. Nation website!


Our Mission

The purpose of the Kansas B.A.S.S. Nation is to stimulate public awareness of bass fishing as a major sport. To offer our State Conservation Department our moral and political support and encouragement. To promote full adherence to all conservation codes, to demand adequate water quality standards and legal enforcement of existing regulatory standards. To detect and report any polluter and to call public and political attention to this crime. To improve our skills as bass anglers through a fellowship of friendly exchange of bass catching techniques and ideas, to promote and encourage youth fishing and love for this great recreation. To promote sportsmanship, courtesy and boating safety at all levels.
