Bayou City Division Lake Somerville Winners 9/28/19

We began our morning throwing a variety of moving baits as well as flipping shallow structure in 2-6 feet. We had 4 keepers at 7:30 with a 4.7 pound kicker. After our morning flurry, we headed to a popular community hole and caught several good fish in less than a foot on a topwater at around 9:30. After completing our limit for around 13 or so pounds, we went to a spot that we had found the day before in practice. We ran into a flurry of big schoolers and culled for a solid hour, catching around 25 keepers. Weighed-in three early around 11:15, making sure they could be released back into the lake safely.  We fished this spot till around 12:00 and the school eventually shut down. We then hopped from brush pile to brush pile looking for a kicker to add onto our solid bag. We proceeded to catch multiple smaller keepers that didn’t cull. We ended our tournament on a stretch of chunk rock and boulders and ended up catching a 4.5 pounder in the last 20 minutes. Our biggest weighed 18.85 pounds. 

 

The team of Ross Dixon - Evan Carlson from The Woodlands won with 18.85.

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.
