Pro Staff Question - How Old Do You Have To Be To Become A Pro Fisherman

Charles "The Bass Doctor" Stuart's Answer

Pro Bass Angler Charles "The Bass Doctor" Stuart

Hi there!

18 is the lowest legal age in a tournament trail such as B.A.S.S. or the FLW.

Parental consent may be possible for a lower age, but you should contact the organizations directly for more information.

What Types Of Sponsors Should A Younger Angler Solicit

Sponsors are always looking for new, young and up and coming fishermen and women. If I were around the 17 to 18 year range I would be looking at companies who appeal to a younger audience.

Think of some of the clothes manufacturers who make outdoor clothing like Colombia and soft drink companies like Coca Cola or Red Bull.

I suggest you get to know the product before you go to them and ask for help.

Chances are they will send you logos and free samples, but hey, its a start!

You should also read my article “So You Want To Turn Pro” on this website for more information.

Tight Lines!
