Central Division Lake Fork Winners 11/9/19

November 9th, 2019, will always be an unforgettable day for both of us as we weighed in the winning bag after 3 years of fishing through THSBA.  We were prepared to grind all day for the 5 key bites at this Lake Fork tournament.   From our experience and knowledge, we created a game plan to fish the same way we did last year that proved successful for us.   We arrived to the location that we knew from last year at 6 a.m. and prepared all the rods for the day.  We rigged up according to the conditions of that day:   near freezing temperatures, falling water temperature, and lower water level.   The first bite came as early as 7 a.m. and was our first keeper.   We continued with finesse fishing at a location offshore that continued to produce bites.  We culled throughout the day to keep our 5 best in the livewell.  It was one of our best fishing days to date.  We have been dreaming of a winning bag, and we are grateful for this result. God answers prayers.

 

The team of Robert and Austin from Royse City had five fish for 8.32 to take the win. 

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.
