History of the Club

The history of Tennessee Striped Bass Association, Inc. (TSBA) is a family-oriented, non-profit association our club is designed to promote and maintain the striped bass and Cherokee bass fishery on all of East Tennessee’s reservoirs and rivers. Its membership is open to anyone interested in associating with fellow striped bass anglers for a free and open exchange of information on all aspects of fishing for striped bass in East Tennessee. Through monthly meetings, social gatherings, educational seminars and fishing events, the TSBA’s primary purposes are fellowship and fun. The TSBA fully supports the TWRA in their efforts to maintain and improve the striper fishery and to educate the public.

The TSBA expects its members to conduct themselves in a courteous and respectful manner and to be good stewards of the waters that we fish. The waters and the surrounding land are to be left in the same condition as we found them.  No alcoholic beverages or illegal drugs of any kind are allowed at any TSBA function.

Any person can become a member of the TSBA by completing and signing an application for membership, and paying their dues. A member’s spouse and all children under the age of 18 are considered members. No person will be denied membership because of age, race, creed, color or sex.
