Marion County Youth Bassmasters started in 2011! July of 2011 the First Annual Jr Bassmasters Challenge kicked off with a total of 25 Youth Anglers ranging in age from 6-18 years. Anglers fished in three divisions, 6-10yr, 11-14yr and 15-18yr. Seeing the need for a youth geared fishing program Daniel Tillis with the help of Danny Ball started the Jr. Bassmasters of Marion County. They kicked off their first year in 2012 and the club grew from about 25 members to 40 members by the end of the year. Over the past few years the club has endured growing changes. Bass Nation has started the High School Bass Fishing program which we have adopted into our program. Bass Nation has also went to a team format and this year we will also conduct our tournaments as a team format consisting of a jr division (6yr-14yr) and a high school division. We look forward to another great year full of excitement and hopefully a ton of big ol’ bass being weighed in!!!!

God Bless and Tight Lines,

​Daniel Tillis

In Loving Memory of Danny Ball!
We wouldn’t have our program if it wasn’t for you! Tight Lines in Heaven!
