5 Jan, 2015
New Online Resource For Bass Fishing Fans Already a Hit
B.A.S.S. has introduced Bassmaster Academy, a one-stop shop for bass anglers seeking access to hundreds of top-quality videos, articles and bass fishing information.
The new online platform is how-to heavy and offers content for different skill levels from a credible source. At Bassmaster Academy, bass fishing fans can learn at their own pace anywhere, at anytime.
“Our passion is bass fishing, and we wanted to share that passion with others through our high-quality how-to videos,” said Mitch Frank, director of membership at B.A.S.S. “In the beginning, we enlisted the nation’s top bass fishing professionals to produce the Bassmaster University Ultimate Tips & Techniques DVD series, and it was a huge success, so we worked on how to expand that platform to reach a larger audience and make it easier for members to access at their convenience.”
In an effort to create a place for avid anglers to elevate their skill levels, B.A.S.S. created a home for eager-to-learn bass anglers in Bassmaster Academy.
“There are no prerequisites to join the Bassmaster Academy community; any bass enthusiast who wants to improve his or her skills can sign up,” Frank said. “In fact, each member helps us mold and develop our content by responding to our interactive articles, videos and classes.”
Fans are encouraged to let B.A.S.S. know what they’d like to see by joining the conversation in the discussion section under each video or on the Bassmaster Academy Facebook page.
With more than 200 instructional videos, articles and more, Bassmaster Academy offers bass fishing enthusiasts knowledge when they need it. Access to all of the information is available on a PC, Mac or mobile device.
“Our team of content contributors consists of the best in the business of bass,” Frank said. “Bassmaster Academy members can expect new and fresh bass fishing coverage on a monthly basis.”
The Bassmaster Academy premium membership includes unlimited access to hours of exclusive video content, valuable tips, techniques and training from top B.A.S.S. pros, a vast library of knowledge and secrets from the pros, bonus downloads and much more.
