About Maryland BASS Nation

The Maryland Bass Nation, along with other State Bass Nations, is part of the greater B.A.S.S. Nation, a global network of locally organized clubs whose members participate in and support a range of activities, including tournaments, conservation initiatives and youth programs.
The cornerstone of our organization are the many local clubs across the state. Every club has its own personality. Whether you’re looking to learn and improve your bass fishing skills, or your looking for some friendly competition in a more relaxed setting, or if you want to compete at the State level, you can find it with the Maryland Bass Nation.

The MBN is also actively supporting our Youth, High School and College programs. We are excited to see our organization grow and get better with the influence of such fine young individuals. We also support our youth’s educational pursuits through the ‘Butch Ward Memorial Youth Scholarship Fund’.

We also have a robust conservation program that includes stocking bass, improving habitat and working with the authorities at the Maryland DNR and other State level organizations. We make a difference.

Our gallery showcase various photos from our members and MBN family. See photo highlights from tournaments, events and other club activities.
