2023 NMBN Dues

We have been notified by Bass Nation that they will be updating the Bass Nation roster system starting January 6, 2023 and it will be down for at least 2 weeks.

The Bassmaster membership is separate from Bass Nation. The Bassmaster membership is just the magazine and membership is required to participate in any B.A.S.S. events.

  • Bass Nation adult dues are $30 for 2023 and $10 for youth anglers. This is required to participate in any event hosted by the NMBN.

  • Your state level dues will be one of the following:

    • member of a current NM club in good standing $40 (same as it was)

    • member of the state club with a geographical nexus to NM (At Large club) $70

    • member of the state club outside a geographical nexus to NM (at large club) $220.

      • The At Large member will pay a total of $100 or $250 depending on their geographical location which includes the Bass Nation dues. This is to prevent members from joining NM Bass Nation just to be able to participate in our qualifiers or at Regionals, we are putting our members first.

    • The volunteer and youth rate is $0.

      • If you are adult member that is not going to participate in tournaments, but would like to be a member and/or volunteer, you will only need to pay Bassmaster and Bass Nation dues, your state dues will be waived.

If you are joining a club and wish to participate in tournaments, your club will collect and pay your respective dues within your club, then forward your state dues and required waiver to the Treasurer. If you want to join the state level club, the At Large, you will pay your Bass Nation dues and state dues through the President or Treasurer.

(checks made payable to NM Bass Nation or NMBN)

Format is best 3 of 5 events for qualifiers. You do not need to go out of state to qualify. You don't need to go to a specific venue if you don't like it. We felt this was the best compromise based on member feedback.
