The IHSA board of directors is nothing if not inclusive and proved that again on Monday with the announcement that bass fishing will be an IHSA sanctioned event starting next year. This is clearly awesome.
Schools will be allowed to enter up to two boats, with up to three students in each boat, although only two may fish at any one time. The competition will run for up to eight hours per day. Each boat may weigh five fish at the end of each day's competition.
The state finals will be held May 8-9 at a site to be determined. For those who have dipped a hook or two in this state, where should the IHSA hold the state finals?
