It is finally time to get ready for Angler Nation Team Trail Season Championship. We have worked through High Water and rescheduling events to get here, so we are going to do it up in style. We want to thank all our sponsors for their support to make this one of the best trails in Oklahoma to fish. We would also like to thank each one of you for the support and loyalty in fishing the Angler Nation because without each one of you none of this would be possible.

There will be several awards this year. We will be announcing our Anglers Of the Year along with the 2 teams that will be attending the B.A.S.S. Team Championship for a chance to fish the Bassmaster Classic. There will also be awards for the largest bass of the year and the lowest total weight for the year.

Raffle Flyer





Established in 2011, The Angler Nation began as an organization that promotes and endorses the health and conservation of all fish species. We are using the money raised from this raffle to further our cause and build a tournament release trailer that will help to manage and monitor the health of all our fish before we release them back to the water. Once complete this trailer will help us contribute to lowering the mortality rate of the fish we love to catch, and help to promote conservation through education of younger anglers looking to get into the sport.  


We estimate the cost of building this trailer to be $4500.00. Our goal is to raise this money through donations and the sale of raffle tickets to have this equipment in place by March of 2018

How Do I Win

We will be selling tickets up until 6:30 am on September 30, 2017. After we complete our championship weigh-in and award all prizes for the annual event we will go live on Facebook (@anglernation) and announce the winner. We will also post the winning number here on the website for you to claim your prize. You do not need to be present to win. You must claim your prize within 24 hours of the drawing.
