Lake Livingston Winners

The day started out slow as our first spot that has been producing quality bass just didn’t put out for us. Nonetheless, we had a couple of patterns and spots to turn to, so we shoot across the lake and still can’t getting anything going until I lean into a little 10 incher that ended up clueing us into what they wanted and how they wanted it. A green pumpkin rage craw which they wanted just as slow as all get out. We didn’t catch our first keeper until about 9-9:30 then we caught two more in the next hour and a half. We told ourselves we were gonna make a run up into the river by 12 into another spot that we have excellent luck in. However with all the rain and lightning by the time we got there we had to take shelter inside of an empty boathouse until things died down. Needless to say, we didn’t catch anything in that spot so we ran down closer to weigh in and decided to flip a few docks we knew that had fish on it before and in the last 10 minutes, Aubrey leaned into a stud. A 4.5lbs that pushed us over the top into first! I want to say a quick thanks to my dad, my captain, Steve DeBlasio for always allowing us to fish our strengths and let us be a part of the decision making. Also on tournament days, he’s sure to make us his famous egg sandwiches that seem to always be good luck for us! -Cory Deblasio-

The team of Cory Deblasio and Aubrey Barnes from Livingston High School ended the day with four fish for 12.60 pounds, big bass was 4.69. They took home first place at the season opener on Lake Livingston for the Houston Division

 

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.
