The Ultimate Bass Club Shoot Out was created so clubs from around the state( and hopefully in the future, the nation) could get together and share ideas, meet new people and fish a friendly competition. The idea for the tournament was spawned from the Ultimate Bass website, where fisherman from around the world share information about this. great sport we call bass fishing. A huge thanks goes out to Mike and Laurie Cork for all the hard work they have put into this great website.
