These are the member clubs of the South Jersey Bass Club Association.  If you are thinking of joining a bass club, check out the ones that indicate they are actively seeking new members.  If their profile information sounds interesting (or hasn't been submitted yet), get in touch with their club contact for more details.
 

Keep in mind that although a profile may say that a club is based in a particular location, it doesn't necessarily mean that they only accept members from that location or that they only fish near that location.  In fact, most clubs draw their members from a wide geographical area and fish locations all over southern/central NJ and/or out of state.
