We are the Backlashers Bass Club of Kansas City. We are members of both Missouri and Kansas B.A.S.S. Nation.
Backlashers was started in 1987 as the Bonner Springs Bass Club and has grown from its 6 original members, to over 60 members now! We host up to a dozen tournaments through the club each year, culminating with "The Classic". We are an angler, co-angler style competition club where there are two divisions. The point leaders at the end of the year represent the club at the Mr. Bass of Kansas tournament to see who's the best angler and co-angler in the state.
Backalashers Bass Club is also very active in the community, We generally host an annual charity event to raise money for non-profit organizations. In 2018, we raised money for Heroes Among Us, a non-profit organization based in Kansas City. We also donate time as boat captains for youth and high school events within the state as needed.
Members in our club take fishing very seriously. Competing against each other is only a small part of what we do. Conservation is an important issue within our club and we work in concert with the Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks in our conservation efforts. We are involved in creel studies, habitat development, and DNA and fin samplings at our weigh-ins. So if you have a big boat, small boat or no boat at all, it doesn't matter to us. Come join the biggest and most successful bass club in Kansas!
