Lake O the Pines Winners

Hey, it's Gage Rowe. I was going to give you a run down of how the winning day went on pines. So in practice we found this spot where we knew we could catch five limit fish, then after we caught 5 we were going to go to one of our deep spots and try to catch like 3 big ones, and that's all we were going off of, that was gonna be our whole day. So we started out on that limit spot back in buckhorn, and they only night there if it's sunny outside and it was a cloudy day, so we only had a couple of bites there and they were small, so we automatically went out to our deep spot. I caught a 4.5 pounder, then we didn't get another bite for 3 hours. So I got to thinking and I told my dad let's make a move because I didn't think it was gonna happen out there because it was a little late in the year for them to be out there on that deep spot, so we decided to go to Tejas road bed, and they were there! So we caught 4 more limit fish real fast, then started upgrading.

This tournament on Pines was one I was waiting for. Fishing the week before looked like we were going to have a bigger sack than we did. We had to make some changes around 11 since we only had one fish at the time. We decided to go to a spot where we have caught them good before but we never pre-fished it and thats where we ended the day and having a 16.80lb sack. -Trenton Gross -

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.
