Maine’s Kennebec Valley hosts many Bass Fishing Tournaments every year. Some are for club members only but there are equally as many that are open if you’re interested in trying your hand at competitive fishing. Often amateurs fish right alongside pros and semi-pros. Soak up all the information you can while fishing with a pro; it’s a lot like hiring a guide for a day. There are regional resources, as well, to help you plan a fishing trip, like Mid-Maine Bass Fishing.
