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.  wnaaa.com. 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.

TODAYS WORKSHOP!!!

These are general rules that have been used in our past casting competitions. You can tailor these to fit your event any way that you would like.  Typically, schools will establish two casting lanes that are approximately 4’ wide by 30’ long.  We have used glass jars half full with water, aquariums, electronic targets, poly spots, and rings.  Each timed and with a point value.  Then they will give the contestants two attempts at each of the three disciplines.

1)  Flipping, normally done from a distance of 10’ with a closed bail. (no line comes off the reel) It is an underhanded cast/swing of the bait. The contestant gets two attempts at this discipline with the highest score being recorded.

2)  Pitching, Is done from a distance of 20’ with an open bail. Line may come off the reel. It is an underhanded pendulum type cast/swing of the bait.  Again, the contestant gets two attempts with the highest score counting.

3)  Casting. Is done from a distance of 30’. An overhead or sometimes sidearm type cast.  Again, the contestants get two attempts. When the competition is complete the best score of the three disciplines will be totaled. The contestant with the highest score wins.

Competition Layout:  For example, the competition is laid out with casting lanes approximately 4’ wide. The target is kept stationary and the contestant is moved to the three different distances which are laid out in the casting lane.

Some schools have the angler casting from the deck of a stationary bass boat.  In that instance they would use three targets at the three different distances. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact us at 704-315-7071 or stay tuned to www.scholasticanglers.com
