American Bass Anglers Fishing Tournament | World Fishing Network

American Bass Anglers

American Bass Anglers is the largest tournament trail dedicated to the weekend angler. The organization was founded in 1975 and was formed for military bass fisherman and called Military Bass Anglers Association or MBAA for short. These founding bass fishermen were looking for alternatives to the normal recreational activities associated with military bases. Little did they know what it would turn into. The tournament trail was limited to military personal only until the early 90s when non-military anglers were allowed to join. In 2000, the organization was renamed to American Bass Anglers (ABA).
