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.
