Tackle Connect High School & Middle School Help

Middle & High School Tournament Fishing

Gives kids a way to be a part of something. Competitive fishing helps kids be a part of team as well as network of kids with similar interests. Not all kids play baseball or soccer. This is just as competitive as any other sport out there! You can also have a co-ed team. It is not limited to one or the other.

Promotes education.To be on a team you must be enrolled in school and be in good standing. There are also full and partial college scholarships opportunities available.

Promotes kids to be outdoors. Is there a better way for kid not to be inside playing video games or on their phone?  If your fishing you’re not cooped up inside but rather outside.  It is one of the most challenging and fun activities one can imagine. 

Looking to start a fishing Team?  There are 2 tournament circuits available in the United States. 

  • FLW   https://www.flwfishing.com/tournaments/high-school
  • Bassmasters   https://www.bassmaster.com/high-school-bass-fishing

Just research which circuit you would like to compete in and then have the Coach of Your Team contact us.


There is no cost to the school.

1st you will need a boat Captain for your team of 2 fisherman.  The boat captain operates the main engine and cannot fish.  They will also need to be 19 years or older.

Have a boat with a livewell and a kill switch / engine disconnect switch.

We are 2 Dads who are Captains of our kids fishing team. Both our kids compete at the tournament leve. Paul has been a tournament fisherman for over 30 years and fished tournament Trails Including: 

      1. B.A.S.S.
      2. FLW
      3. PAA
      4. Fisherman's Bass Circuit

Paul has fished and competed on most every lake in the Southeast. He was won multiple tournaments and knows what it takes to compete at a high level.

Jeff has fished his entire life but only competitively the last 3 year’s captaining his sons local High School team.  Overwhelmed with what he needed he went into his first tournament totally unprepared. We knew there were others who needed our help and that is was the reasoning to form Tackle Connect.

Our goal is to help kids not only enter and compete in the fastest growing High School sport across the US to help the avid angler to!
