Bass tournament directors: MassWildlife biologists need your tournament info
Help MassWildlife collect information on trophy bass by submitting a bass creel survey form . The information generated from bass tournaments helps add to biologists understanding of bass populations in waters across the Commonwealth. Data such as how long it takes to catch a bass, average weight, and the number of trophy bass landed allows MassWildlife fisheries biologists to track trends in individual waters across the state. A copy of the data you submit will be sent to your e-mail address as your confirmation. If you prefer to report your Creel Survey in paper format, please download the bass creel survey and mail or fax it to the DFW Field Headquarters address on the bottom of the form.
Thank you in advance for your cooperation!
