Title Sponsorship Opportunity



The Bass Anglers Sportsman Society (B.A.S.S.) was founded in 1968. The organization advances the sport through advocacy, outreach and an expansive tournament structure while connecting directly with the passionate community of bass anglers through its media vehicles. With the biggest bass on the biggest stage in the sport, Bassmaster continues to launch big dreams into reality. 


For years, our editors have delivered valuable instruction and tips for how to equip and get better at fishing from a kayak.  In 2020, we came full-circle and launched the B.A.S.S. Nation Kayak Series.  We invite you to join us as the Title Sponsor of the Series as we continue to grow the sport of kayak bass fishing.
