New Hampshire College Graduate Trying to get on a Boat

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

 

So I am a recent college graduate from Plymouth State University, and I couldn't be more broke.  Saying this,  I really want to fish some larger bodies of water (Lakes Region?) or legit anything.  I lack a boat, and kayaking huge fisheries becomes really difficult at times.  Saying that,

 

1.) If anyone on here would allow me to fish with them on their boat. (I got all my own gear plus I am just a chill guy tryna bass fish lol) please send me a personal message

 

2.) What about the idea of going to a busy ramp on the weekend in the AM with a sign saying I have no boat and really would like to be a co angler for the day.

 

Opinions or input on those ideas?  Thanks guys!

If homeless people can stand outside and hold a sign that says starving, to ugly to prostitute. I'm sure you'd have a shot at it. Just don't go fishing with the guy in the big white van. ???

 1. Join Bass Anglers Sportmans Society (B.A.S.S.)

2. Once you have received a membership # you are allowed to join a local B.A.S.S. affiliated club

3. http://www.nhbassfednation.com/2016_Afilliated_Clubs.pdf is a list of some of the clubs in NH with their contact information

4. Google a few of the clubs listed and pick one close to where you live. Ask them if they are accepting non-boaters

5. Fish a few tournaments with the club as a non-boater, meaning you will fish from the back of someone else's boat

 

You will learn so much from the guys you fish with, you will learn the tricks of some of the larger bodies of water in the state, and you will make some good friends out of it. Most clubs will have dues of maybe $100 for the year and tournaments may cost you $20 to throw in for the "lunker prize" plus some gas money for your boater. All in, you can probably fish half a dozen tournaments for around $400 for the year, and if your lucky you may win some of that money back. Definitely a small price to pay for the experience you get out of it.

You are the man, thank you for the help!
