The Texas High School Bass Association is a non-profit corporation and its purpose is to provide a venue where high school students have the opportunity to compete in organized tournaments while establishing strict guidelines and academic standards that will allow its student anglers to excel in the class room and on the lake.
“The THSBA is extremely excited and honored to designate Mossy Oak Elements Agua as our official pattern,” said Tim Haugh, President of the THSBA. “Mossy Oak Fishing has an extremely strong presence in the fishing community, from being the official pattern of B.A.S.S. and MLF to its presence down through the college ranks and now into the high school level. To be able to add Mossy Oak Fishing to our profile of tremendous partners takes the THSBA to another level and raises the bar for high school fishing in Texas. We are looking forward to working with Mossy Oak Fishing to help promote their awesome line of patterns to the next generation of anglers and hunters throughout Texas.”
All proceeds from tournament entries, sponsorships, membership fees and donations are used for student scholarships that are awarded to the student’s high school and are not awarded to student angler until that said student meets all qualifications of high school graduation and has in place a plan to further his education by the way of college, university or trade school.
“Our mission at Mossy Oak and Mossy Oak Fishing is to help people live their best lives outdoors,” said Ben Maki, Senior Vice President, Chief Marketing Officer of Mossy Oak. “Organizations like the THSBA help make that possible for thousands of anglers through their effort and leadership. We are very excited to support them, their mission and their anglers.”
