Welcome to the home page for the Marion County Bassmasters. Formerly the Have Fun Bass Tournament Trail, we are now a Florida Federation Nation club that officially started in January 2011. We are a non-profit organization established to preserve and promote the Sport of Bass Fishing, to practice and promote sound environmental policies to conserve our natural resources, to promote youth and public interest in sport fishing and conservation, to work for an abundant, healthy, and self-sustaining bass fishery; to act as an effective voice for the advancement of bass fisheries, to communicate effectively with organizations that have an impact on the sport of bass fishing, and to support local, state and national agencies and organizations whose objectives are to conserve and manage our national resources.
Our goal is to provide a fun, competitive and safe environment for you to fish in while focusing our fishing on the bodies of water that make Florida a great place to fish for bass.

See where your team currently stands in the Marion County Bassmasters points race for team of the year!
24 boats came out to see if they could find some of Rodman Reservoir's Big Ol' Bass! Let's just say that Rodman was a bit stingy this go around. High water after a lot of rain made the conditions on Rodman tough for most of our anglers, however, a few of our teams got on an early morning schooling bite! Taking home the Win was Kevin Guynn and Kyle Tomlinson with 19.98lbs! Kevin's 6.27lb Rodman Toad anchored their bag and took home Big Bass Honors for the Day! 2nd went to Randy Copeland and James Bass with 14.88lbs, 3rd to Jeff Davis and Kevin Murrell with 14.37lbs, 4th to Mike Crumpton and Zabrina Tidball with 13.43lbs, and rounding out the top 5 was Paul Braun fishing solo with 13.25lbs! Next stop is John's Lake in June!
