I am going to give you some homework to do to try to locate either a yute or an adult club in central Iowa.
No guarantee you will find one in your area but a least you can give it a try.
First, visit the two sites noted below. They are the B.A.S.S. and FLW web sites. Each organization has their clubs sprinklered around the country and there may be on in your area.
Look for "contact" and send them an email asking for the web page or phone numbers of the Iowa Federations.
Google Iowa Bass Federations and you may find the state's web page which will give you information on the Region in your area. The Regions usually list the member clubs and you can contact their presidents.
Second, send a letter to your game and fisheries department or via an email asking them for assistance in locating any bass clubs in your area. Ask to have the game warden for your area contact you.
Some game and fisheries departments have employees that fish bass tournaments or know of bass clubs in your area. The local game warden should have some knowledge of clubs but there is no guarantee.
Third, ask tackle shops about bass clubs. The large, box stores, like Bass Pro Shops may have some guys who know about clubs in your area but local tackle shops should have more knowledgable people.
Our club will accept 16 year olds and we have had only one. He is now married with two kids and he just won the Virginia B.A.S.S. Mr. Bass Touranment on Buggs Island last month.
In the meantime you need to read, read and read some more. You can never do too much homework about bass fishing. If you join either or both B.A.S.S. or FLW they will send you excellent magazines.
Start a library of various articles for future reference.
You can add this Forum to your Facebook page along with B.A.S.S. and FLW plus the pros like VanDam and manufacturers such as Gary Yamamoto. Search Facebook for Zoom, Berkley, your favorite pros and other manufacturers, Bill Dance, Jimmy Houston and others you want to read about their products and tips.
Many pros and manufacturers will also put you on their email list and send you information. Google John Torsch as John has a great web site, DVDs and emails about bass fishing, expecially frogs. Sign up for his emails. John is a "trip" but he is an excellent bass fisherman.
So take some time after all school work is completed or on the weekend and start your searches and select the web pages and web sites you want to visit and save in your favorites.
I like Ike's web page and visit it often. Also local Iowa pros have their web pages so add them to your favorites list and contact them. Local guys like to help young bass fishermen who are starting out.
Check out this web site, too. Woo is a great guy who won the Bassmaster Classic. Read Woo's articles and send him an email with a question you may have.
And don't be bashful about asking a local or national pro a question. You will probably hear back from the local guys and maybe from a national pro if they have time to answer your query.
Good luck and be sure to post some of the pics of the bass you catch in Iowa. If the bass are as large as the hogs and pigs you will do great!!!
