Lake Tawakoni Winners

Riley and Noah started the morning fishing a cut with a small drop off and a few docks that they hit but had no luck there so they made a move for the dam. They got to the dam and decided it was way too windy to fish as there were 2-3 foot swells. They started to make their way back up the lake and decided to go fish anther cove so that they could be protected from the wind and in hopes of warmer water. They fished the mouth of the cove but eventually worked their way into a marina type area where Riley caught the first fish that was about 6 pounds on a black and purple jig in about 1 foot of water. They kept fishing that particular cove along the brush edges because it was the warmest water they found at about 49.5 degrees. Noah eventually caught a short and then a keeper on a lipless crankbait so they both decided to fish the lipless crankbait and caught 2 more keepers at around 2 pounds each. And then at around 12:30 Riley caught the 5th keeper on the lipless crankbait that was a little over 6 pounds to secure their limit of 19.66 pounds. To sum up the day the main pattern was to throw lipless crankbaits on the edges of brush in about 7 feet of water. The Team of Noah Weibust and Riley Aebi weighed in 5 fish for 19.66 pounds for first place and also led their school, Allen High School to a first place for school of the tournament. They would also like to thank their team's sponsor Coach Jason Anderson.

It is the goal of the Texas High School Bass Association to provide a venue where high school students have the opportunity to compete in organized tournaments while establishing strict guide lines and academic standards that will allow our student anglers to excel in the class room and on the lake.
