Chisholm and DePuy Win Florida High School Fishing State Championship

Osceola anglers, Bailey Chisholm and Cole DePuy, caught 17.05 pounds to top the field on Sunday on the St.John River in Putnam County, Fl.  Teams traveled from across the state to battle it out for the championship titles and the five national qualifying spots.

Most anglers were fishing in 3-6 foot of water while others were sight fishing.  The popular baits included Senkos, trick worms, chatterbaits and jerkbaits.  In total, there were 21 limits weighed for a total of 323.06 pounds.

Finishing in second place with 15.13 pounds was the Brahmans team of Kaitlyn Williams and David Daniel.  Fort Meade Fighting Miners anglers Tyler Bazemore and Shane Schmucker took third with 15.09 pounds.

Rounding out the top five qualifiers to advance to the High School National Championship were the teams of James Brooks and Matthew Sorrells with 15.03 pounds and Fisher Omans and Steven Steinard with 14.15 pounds.

The Lew’s Big Bass of the event went to Coy and Madison Givens with an 8.14 pound giant.  Both anglers received new Lew’s reels for their huge catch. Next week, anglers set out to qualify through the GICAA Regional events on Lake Sinclair and Lake Lanier, as well as, the FLW/TBF South Carolina OPEN on Lake Murray.

CHRISTY AND SPRINGER LOCK DOWN EARLY LEAD TO WIN CABELA’S LAKE HARTWELL EARLY BIRD CHALLENGE

It was a beautiful day on Lake Hartwell with temperatures reaching the mid-70’s.  Anglers caught fish on several kinds of baits in both deep and shallow water. But, it was the team of Tyler Christy and Scott Springer that bested the 67 boat field to win the Cabela’s Lake Hartwell Early Bird Open and advance to the national event.

Christy and Springer brought a limit of bass to the scales weighing 18.01 pounds early in the weigh in and set back to watch as no one would catch them.  Their catch also included the biggest bass of the day, a hefty 5 pound largemouth, which earned them the Lew’s Big Bass Award and two Lew’s reels.  Christy and Springer will lead a six team contingent to the 2017 High School National Championship to be held on Pickwick in June.

In second place, was the Devildog team of Jacob Smith and Hunter Harrison with 13.11 pounds.  In a tie for third and just a pound behind, were Cole and Karston Hopson from the Rivers Academy Elite Anglers and Chase Stroud and Coby Davis of the Palmetto Bass Anglers.  The Hopson’s won the tie-breaker, which was decided by the earliest registered team.

Fifth place went to Hunter McKee and Wyatt Long from the Backwoods Bass Boys with a nice 12.04 pound bag.  The sixth and last team to make the cut was Tanner Barr and Landon Gramling of the Gilbert Bass Anglers with 10.11 pounds.

Anglers were catching fish as deep as 45 ft and as shallow as 5 ft, pitching around docs, rocky banks and fallen timber.  Several different baits were used like drop shot rigs, Alabama rigs, square bill crankbaits, flukes, jigs and swimbaits.  There were 19 limits caught with 341.08 pounds weighed in, and no penalties for dead fish.  Thanks to all the sponsors and volunteers who made this event such a huge success.
