That's because the Missouri high school teacher wants to make bass fishing a sport at Republic High School. The Associated Press reports that the proposal to include bass fishing in the curriculum will be on spring ballots for school administrators. The measure needs only a 50 percent vote to pass.
If approved, the school would have two boats with two students per boat. KY3-TV reports these boats, or teams, would then be eligible to participate in state and national championships.
In these competitions, each team would have a five-fish limit.
