BASS FISHING | Varsity

Welcome to the 2018 Bass Fishing Team Page!

The sport of bass fishing has grown significantly in the past several years.  Since its first state tournament in 2008-09 season with 199 schools, there are now over 290 high schools competing each spring in the state finals at Carlyle Lake.  We are fortunate to have great support from the Providence staff, parents, coaches, and of course, the students.  All this has lead to yearly blessings including:

D230 Anglers of the Year: 2016-17

Sectional Champions: 2012-13, 2013-14,  2016-17, 2017-18

State Finals: 2011-12, 2012-13, 2013-14, 2016-17 and 2017-18

But for us, success is much more than winning trophies! High school bass fishing promotes lifelong lessons that will extend far beyond the classroom. That is why the guiding principle behind the Providence Bass Fishing Program is in the core Augustinian values of Truth, Unity, and Love.

The sport is open to all students and all skill levels. Having your basic fishing equipment is preferred but not mandatory.  All we ask is that you enjoy the sport and be a good teammate.

In the Fall, we have one or two team meetings.  There will be an Open House in November that requires volunteers.  We also try and fish one tournament if there is interest.

The season begins with team meetings in March.  We fish a minimum four tournaments  scheduled in April and May.  We compete in the District 230 tournaments at just the varsity level. In the past, the tournaments have been held on the Des Plaines River, Braidwood Lake, Lake Calumet and the Illinois River.  Our roster will include freshman through seniors.  Every person on the team is valued, and one goal is to get each person fishing at least one time during the season. 

Philosophy:

The Providence Catholic Bass Fishing program works to help each fisherman develop a lifelong love for fishing.  This is done by representing the Providence Catholic’s values of truth, love, and unity through the development of a team atmosphere from Freshmen year through Senior year.   It is critical that everyone remains dedicated to the team and demonstrate positive attitudes and good sportsmanship throughout the entire season.
