How did Reel*Time USA come about? 

I would like to share with you how this idea came about: A few years ago, I was bass fishing with my good friend Bart in Jupiter, Florida. I noticed a few kids fishing next to me and having a blast catching bass and taking “selfie” photos with their fish before they would carefully release them back in the water. What took place after that caught my attention; they were sharing their Bass photos on social media. The excitement on their faces and the conversations they had amongst each other was absolutely infectious. They couldn’t wait to catch another fish so they could post and share their friends near and far. From this observation, I was inspired to organize a friendly competition with friends. The inaugural event wound up having 76 anglers in 9 states.

Today, that idea has turned into a “National Fishing Challenge”. There are hundreds of participants from all over the USA that have enjoyed a day with their family and friends, making memories and teaching fundamental values like strong work ethic and good sportsmanship.

The Nationwide events have 50 winning divisions ranging from children to senior citizens, bait or artificial lures and boat or land. The format is very unique because it allows anyone to compete across the country, in any pond, lake, stream or honey hole. Participants sign up through our website, buy that day’s newspaper or download and print the RTUSA validation card to authenticate their catches, go fish 4 consecutive hours taking selfie photos with newspaper or card of each bass before they release. The person who catches and releases the most bass in a 4 hour time slot will be crowned Grand Champion and gets inducted into the Elite Group to compete with other past Grand Champions.

Sign up for our next Nationwide Catch and Release Challenge: October 8, 2022
