The 2020-2021 Scholastic Anglers Season will begin Thursday, September 17, 2020.  All Scholastic Anglers Workshops will be held on the third Thursday of each month throughout the school year at the Why Not An American Ark Facility, 3224 Medlin Road, Monroe, NC 28112. Due to covid 19 and because of weather conditions there are a few modifications we may have to make this season. Please adapt with us and thank you for your patience. Any late pertinent news such as bad weather, delays, changes, or cancellations will always be displayed here on this site. Anglers may join our membership club, our membership is only ten dollars for the year. Just click the Join button on the home page. The Scholastic Anglers Championship and Classic are set for Saturday, June 5, 2021.

The benefits of the Scholastic Anglers Program is far reaching, not only in the sport of fishing, but the academic realm as well:  Sciences, math, social studies, reading, writing, and water/boating/sun safety. Scholastic Anglers places a tremendous focus on the Content Areas of Character Education. Here, long lasting traditions are created, and the opportunity to meet new friends, and enjoy great competition. There are lots of fantastic prizes and recognitions to earn here. We are here for our anglers.
Up for grabs this season is the Scholastic Anglers School Of The Year, the Scholastic Angler Of The Year, the Scholastic Anglers Elite Eight, and the Scholastic Anglers Classic. This season we are frequently having raffle drawings at our events for prizes.

 The Challenge and Scholastic Anglers Season runs throughout the entire academic year. Student-anglers compete both as an individual and as a school team.  Points are earned for the Scholastic Anglers Challenge through catching, photographing, releasing, and entering fish, meeting attendance, and completing assignments on our site when available. Assignments can be found under the Fisher Tools tab on this website. Every accomplishment counts and every point is valuable.

One time event

Join in for this fall fishing tournament event on Saturday, October 31, 2020!  Yes, Halloween!  Registration and entry forms will be available as soon as possible.  This is one of those voluntary, come as you are, extra credit bonus point opportunities extended to any and all of our student-anglers.  Not to mention, there will most likely be some rather large size fish.  Contrary to popular belief, Cane Creek Park is a thriving bass fishing habitat.  It is just recently discovered these fish are heavily pressured…just simply smart.  We shall see.  So, let us just see if we can drum up thirty 30 boats for this cause, which Tommy would want, to simply continue to share and pass on this great sport.


The Annual Tommy Taylor Memorial Tournament.  There will be a maximum of thirty (30) boats.  For more information contact Jared Steele at 704 -843 -3919. 


Tom always enjoyed fishing.  He loved everything about it: the peace and quiet of the water, God’s beauty all around, the rush of reeling in that five (5) pound largemouth bass, the collection of an arsenal of tackle boxes and lures, and even frying up the fish for his family. He could often be found waiting outside the gates of Cane Creek long before they opened, ready to hook his biggest catch yet.  Tommy snagged a log in Cane Creek with a new, fancy, very expensive lure.  It was really stuck!  He was bound and determined that he was not cutting the line. He worked and worked, becoming madder by the minute.  Then, without warning, he dove into the lake, followed his line, and a few minutes later surfaced with his precious lure and big grin. Talk about dedication!  A few excerpts from a poem by Tommy:  “I fish because I love to;” “I love the environment where bass are found, which are invariably beautiful;” “I thus escape; because in a world where most men seem to spend their lives doing things they hate, my fishing is at once an endless source of delight and an act of small rebellion;” “Only on the water I can find solitude without loneliness;” and, “finally not because I regard fishing as being so terribly important, but because I suspect that so many of the other concerns of men are equally unimportant— and not nearly so much fun.”  We love you Tommy!


Note:  The above was taken from the 2016 Tommy Taylor Memorial Tournament…definitely worth reading again…
