Marshall Harrelson ('19) - Young Harris College

Marshall Williams ('20) - Emmanuel College


The Tallulah Falls School Bass Fishing Team competes in at least eight tournaments during the season including the State Classic (Championship).  

While it is not mandatory to fish every event, fishing competitively is no different than any other sport. The more practice and participation, the better the team will be.

We invite, welcome and encourage anyone, male or female, who wants to join and compete as a part of the TFS Fishing Club team. A sanctioned fishing boat and an adult driver/captain are required for each fishing pair to be eligible to participate. Fishing boats are not provided by the school and drivers/captains serve on a volunteer basis. 

These events are nationally sanctioned by B.A.S.S. and while it teaches these young men and women many valuable lessons about the environment, competition, safety, etc., it also gives them exposure to colleges searching for young anglers to award scholarships to fish at the next level. The TFS Bass Fishing team has two student-anglers competing at next level – Marshall Harrelson received a fishing scholarship to attend Young Harris College for the 2019-20 academic year and Marshall Williams received a scholarship to fish at Emmanuel College for the 2020-21 academic year. 

While the season has a starting and ending point, it is perfectly acceptable for anglers to go through the qualification requirements and get started after the season has begun.  As illustrated in the schedule below, tournaments are held on lakes all across the state with more than 165 Georgia Bass Nation High School teams competing.  

Anglers in middle and high school are eligible to participate. The teams generally practice the weekend before a tournament and the Friday before a tournament. All tournaments are held on Saturdays except the State Classic which is typically a two-day event.
