(WRCB) - The Chattanooga Bass Association is celebrating its 38th year anniversary of being a non-profit community service organization. Chattanooga Bass Association was founded by community leaders in 1976 and was designed to offer a top quality open fishing circuit to Chattanooga and surrounding areas; while enhancing Chattanooga's economic growth and recreational potential.

"The CBA prides itself in offering an exclusive format that allows anglers of all ages to be able to compete in an organized week-end team tournament. We offer a Youth Division for kids 16 years of age and under that can fish with an adult and compete against other Youth Division teams and also a New Team Division where new teams compete against each other," says CBA President Shane Frazier. 

This bass tournament ends its year with a two-day Classic with the winning team receiving $10,000 for the first place prize.

The Chattanooga Bass Association tournaments are open to the public and consist of a 12 tournament circuit with Chickamauga, Nick-A-Jack and Watts Bar waters open to competitors.  All tournaments are held out of Chester Frost Park for the 2015 season.
