    Default UNO Bass Fishing Team

    Hey guys,

    Many on here know me, and I'm a 4th year student at the University of Nebraska at Omaha. In the last two years, I have gotten heavily into bass tournaments, and with the expansion of college fishing, and the success by the UNL Husker Bass Anglers (which I was a member of my freshman year when I attended UNL), I am extremely interested in starting another team here in Nebraska, for students that attend UNO.

    I want it to be known, I'm not trying to take anything away from the Husker Bass Anglers, as I am good friends with Tony, Kyle, Drew and Logan, and I also was a member of that team for a year. The reason I'd like to form a team is because of my love of bass fishing, and fishing in general, and for other anglers as well as myself develop as fisherman and have a club available to them where they participate in an activity not previously available.

    I believe we need to have 8 members to form a club at UNO, and I am looking more into that, and I'd like to have a meeting sometime in the next month or two. For now, I plan on starting off with fishing the FLW college series, if you'd like to see more about that you can visit this link: http://collegefishing.com/.

    If you have any interest at all, please either send me a pm, reply to this thread, or feel free to email me at benmilliken@msn.com. You do NOT need to have tournament fishing experience. You do NOT need to have a boat. You only need to love fishing, and want to meet people that share the same love for the sport. Please let me know ASAP!

    Thanks so much.

    starting a club at UNO won't be taking anything away from the UNL folks...

    Thanks for the encouragement guys! I think I might have a tough time getting 8 guys together, as I'm at one right now haha...if anyone knows anyone they think would be interested, please send them my way. I'm also going to make some flyers to hang up around campus...

    I may just have to break out the GI Bill and enroll at UNO. Fishing may be the only way I went back.

    I go to UNO, but I am not much of a bass fisherman. I spend most of my time chasing muskies. However, I might join if you can make it work.

We have about 8 guys so far, and our first meeting will be the Monday (Oct. 25th) at the HPER building in room 101 at 7:30pm. Please send me a pm if you're interested in coming....anyone is welcome! Thankyou.
