Bass are more fun than trout, right? Then, vote!

March Madness has long been known as the time millions of people set their basketball brackets.

But in the outdoors world, we now have Critter Madness. Same idea, but instead of pitting teams against each other, this concept pits fish and game against each other.

And in Week 1, it’s the largemouth bass versus the brook trout.

We’re not trying to sway your vote (yes, we are), but we need to tell the world how great Larry the Largemouth is.

Critter Madness is in its second year, hosted by the Theodore Roosevelt Conservation Partnership (TRCP). And while Warren Buffet won’t be giving you a billion dollars for setting the perfect wildlife bracket, TRCP is still making the voting worth your time. At the end of each round, someone will win either a pair of Costa Del Mar sunglasses, an Abu Garcia rod, a custom TRCP Yeti cooler, or a Mossberg 12-gauge shotgun.

Register now and vote for your favorite critters.

Sixteen species are up for voting. Just be sure you select largemouth bass in Round 1 — because we all know you’re not out buying BrookTroutMaster Magazine.
