Message from our President Tony Forte

"The Silver medal win is a great start for this talented team. Congratulations to our Silver Medal World Champions: Lionel Botha, Fred Roumbanis, David Dudley, Team Captain – Scott Martin, Scott Canterbury, Mark Rose, James Watson, and David Fritts.  South Africa was a great first step for USA Bass. It showed that bass fishing is truly an international sport. USA Bass will continue to field teams representing the USA for years to come. This path will lead to the United States hosting the Black Bass World Championship at Lake Murray in Columbia, South Carolina, in 2020 and convince the International Olympic Committee that bass fishing belongs in the Olympics!

Thank you to the USA Bass supporters that make this possible:

2017, 2018, 2019, 2020

The next four years provide many opportunities for the U.S. team

and its supporters. The 2017 World Championship in South Africa is

followed by Mexico in 2018, the World Angling Games (the Olympiad

of fishing) in South Africa in 2019 and then the United States plans to

host the World Championship in 2020. CIPS, has formally applied to

the International Olympic Committee to recognize bass fishing as

an Olympic sport. U.S. Angling believes this four year plan will make

this dream a reality and propel bass fishing and the fishing industry

to the next level!

The World Championship will become the “Ryder Cup” of bass fishing.

Annually, U.S. Angling will send a “Dream Team” of the best

professional bass anglers in the United States to compete against the countries across the world for Gold.
