About our club

We are very fortunate in Tennessee to have some great Striper fishing. While it is fine to catch and keep fish (they do taste good) the best part of catching a big Striped Bass is to watch it swim away. TSBA promotes Catch, Photo, Release (CPR).

As long as the club remains financially stable, we will continue to make yearly donations.  For 2017 we donated $500.00 each to the Children’s Hospital, the Boy Scouts of America, and 4-H club. Our goal is to support the local organizations. The Board of Directors voted to make our 2018 donations of $500.00 each to the Boy Scouts of America and 4-H club.

I was honored this evening, as Chairman of the Board of Directors for the Tennessee Striped Bass Club, to present the Knox County 4-H Horse and Pony Club with our donation of $ 500.00. The 4-H Club members were thrilled to receive the donation which will benefit many young children in the club.”
