A trick of the calendar put Thanksgiving and Christmas closer together than usual this year, but that seems appropriate to Kristopher Queen. In fact, as far as he’s concerned, Santa Claus has already visited and left him with plenty of reasons to be thankful.
In only his first year of competition, the 17-year-old angler from Catawba, N.C., placed 12th in the co-angler division of the Walmart Bass Fishing League’s Piedmont Division. Then, in October, Queen earned a berth in the 2014 BFL All-American by placing sixth in the co-angler standings at the Lake Hartwell Regional. He collected $400 there, which, when added to the $2,539 he got for winning a BFL Super Tournament on Lake Gaston in September, amounted to a fairly profitable rookie season.
