There are fantasy sports leagues for everything nowadays, from football to basketball and baseball. There’s even fantasy bowling. So why not fishing too?

Bassmaster has teamed up with Bass Pro Shops to offer a new fantasy fishing league starting this season. Beginning in time for the 2016 GEICO Bassmaster Classic, the free fantasy game is now up and running at

To play, go to the website, register and then set up a team by choosing the angler that you think will perform the best in each of five different groups. B.A.S.S. is calling these categories “buckets.” Playing in the league will continue with this sort of setup through the rest of the season.

First-place fantasy winners for each fishing tournament will win a $2,500 gift card to Bass Pro Shops. Second-place winners will get a GoPro Hero 4 Black Camera valued at $499. At the end of the season, the fantasy fishing player with the most points will win a Triton boat with Yamaha motor valued at $37,793.
