Dayton Hawkins-
“During prefish we had been catching some decent fish just not that many. After all the rain, we were struggling to catch even a few small keepers. We found some areas we planned to hit tournament day so we would hopefully have something. At that point we were just hoping the spots could put something on the board. When Saturday rolled in, I really wasn’t setting high expectations although the bite was better than the previous week. When it was all said and done, we had a few big fish that definitely added weight to the scale. “

Brandon Horst
“The first few minutes of the morning started out slow, but within the first hour, we caught a six pounder and picked up a pattern. We discovered fish were smashing white chatterbaits thrown into the grass and ripped out. Using this technique, we caught our limit and started to cull before noon. This led to throwing white frogs into shallow grass and eventually pulling out a few heavier fish.”

We both want to give thanks to God for providing us the opportunity and ability to fish. We want to send a special thank you to our boat captain, Riley Blagg, for his skills and knowledge and to his wife, Kathy, for his time.

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.
