Update from last meeting
During the Board of Director's meeting in November the decision was made to allow sixteen and seventeen year old to fish as non boaters for the 2015 season. During 2014 trail eighty plus percent of percipient surveyed agreed this would be in the best interest of the Florida Bass Federation. This will allow the juniors to move to the adult tournament trail this year or fish with the high school programs.
