Bass Sign & Brochure

Bass SignBass are particularly succeptible to pre-season fishing which can cause significant damage to fish stocks (catch and release is as bad as catch and keep).

Individuals and lake associations can help by printing and distributing the Bass Out of Season Brochure. It is available as an Adobe PDF document that you can view, save and/or print.

To remind people that Bass season doesn't start until the fourth Saturday in June, you can also download a sign showing this. Print it out on your printer and post it at the end of your dock (or local boating access point).
