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.

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.
