Collegiate bass fishing is one of the fastest-growing segments of fishing and outdoor recreation in the country and the Association of Collegiate Anglers (ACA) is leading the charge. Our BoatUS Collegiate Bass Championship has been the nation’s most prestigious collegiate fishing event for 15 seasons now. In addition to the Championship, we have three other events each year to compose the complete Bass Pro Shops Collegiate Bass Fishing Series: Bass Pro Shops Big Bass Bash presented by Berkley, Texas Lunker Challenge presented by Mossy Oak Fishing, & the AFTCO Collegiate Bass Open. Additionally, the ACA also launched the first Bass Pro Shops School of the Year presented by Abu Garcia Program, which is based on performance. The nation’s first collegiate bass fishing ranking system rewards colleges throughout the country with a points-based system designed to determine the best team in college bass fishing each year. The collegiate bass fishing program has grown each year, giving partners strong branding opportunities, increased media exposure, and targeted promotions.
