The Quad City Bass Fisherman’s Club, based in Davenport, Iowa along the banks of the
Mississippi River, was formed in 1963 making it one of the oldest known bass fishing clubs
in the country. The club currently boasts a membership of over 200 men and women.
We annually have 7 club closed tournaments, 1 open tournament that takes place in
conjunction with the Tug Festival in LeClaire, Iowa, 2 husband and wife outings, and a
summer picnic. The club motto "Leave Some For Seed" represents the emphasis placed
on catch and release at every club tournament. Monthly meetings are held on the last
Monday of the month and the public is invited to attend.

JULY SPONSOR OF THE MONTH
The July Sponsor of the Month is K & K Hardware. There's only 1 letter you need to know when it comes to all your lumber and hardware and fishing needs. It's K&K. There's really nothing to say about them that everyone doesn't already know. K&K has a full lumber store, hardware, paint, lawn and garden, and electrical departments, along with a complete line of and guns and ammo. When you walk in the door it's not like a big box store where you have to look for someone to help you. It seems that an employee is always asking you what they can do for you and they know where it is located within the store without calling for help. And of course don't forget the most complete supply of fishing tackle in the area. If they don't have it, which is rare, Matt will be happy to order it for you. A rod will be given away at the Rapid City tournament donated by K & K. Thanks to K&K for being a long time club sponsor.
Remember, club rules state that in order to fish a tournament, your dues have to be paid before the end of the monthly membership meeting prior to the 1st tournament of the year that you would like to fish.
TOURNAMENT RULES UPDATED
The club's tournament rules were updated/revised in December 2016. It is recommended that you read and completely understand the rules prior to fishing your first tournament as these rules will be strictly enforced.

NEW IOWA AQUATIC HITCHIKER LAWS
As of July 1, 2013 a new set of aquatic hitchiker laws went into effect in Iowa. Before leaving a water access YOU MUST: INSPECT all boats, trailers and equipment, REMOVE any visible plants, animals and mud. No aquatic invasive species or aquatic plants can be transported on public roads. DRAIN all water from boats, live wells and equipment. While in transit on Iowa roadways, boat drain plugs must be removed and all drain valves (livewell pumpouts) must remain open. A violation of these laws can bring a fine of up to $500. These are good laws and it will only take a few minutes after you load your boat to observe them.
