Grooming the Next Generation of Anglers

Come Join The Fun!

The Farmington High School Fishing Team provides the opportunity for youth anglers from all skill levels to learn new tactics and techniques, or to refine their current skill sets, in order to consistently catch more fish. The club will primarily focus on building general fishing knowledge via education and recreational experience. We will cover bass fishing extensively, however, skills developed by joining can be carried over to many other species of fish. Students will learn the different stages of the bass cycle throughout the year, and what they can do as an angler to catch them during those periods. The club will feature special guest speakers from the fishing industry at certain meetings to be determined in the future.

During the season, anglers will have the opportunity to compete in three different major youth bass fishing tournament trails – MN Jr Bass Nation, Student Angler Federation, and the Student Angler Tournament Trail. Anglers have the opportunity to qualify to fish in the State Championship in each league, and based on those results, anglers can earn a spot to advance onto the High School National Championships. The “Comp/Travel” portion of the team is optional, and a Boat Captain and/or partner is NOT required to join the team.

Our page will be updated as information becomes available, and links to our sponsor pages are below. A schedule of circuit events will be posted as they are announced.
