Dillon Harrell and Brendan Reavis win Sam Rayburn Open
Dillon Harrell from Porter Texas and Brendan Reavis of Corrigan Camden High School teamed up to win the 2014 Sam Rayburn Open High School tournament Sunday at Cassells Boykin Park on scenic Sam Rayburn reservoir.
“We had a good limit by 7:00am this morning and were able to cull a few times to get us over the 20lb mark” stated Harrell as the two anglers brought an impressive 22lb 11oz sack to outdistance the 66 boat field at the second annual event.
Finishing second was the team of Michael Snook and Josh Perrin who also had a limit of bass that weighed in at 16lbs 14oz to claim the runner up spot. Hunter Curry and Josh Russell from host school Broaddus High School also had a nice limit of Rayburn bass that weighed in at 15lbs even finish third.
All three of these teams claimed qualifying berths in the Southern Conference Regional Championship which will be held on the Red River in Shreveport La. later this fall as well as a host of scholarship prizes donated by local companies and groups.
Rounding out the top five teams was Hank Bostock and Calvin Burks from Corrigan-Camden High School who also had a limit of bass that tipped in at 14lb 2oz to finish fourth.
Kyle Dragulski and Austin Dupree finished in a tie for 5th place with Mathew Bowden and Bo McGraw with 13lbs 14oz.
Tanner Cox of Buna High School claimed the Lew’s Big Bass award with a 7lb 3oz beauty to claim the prize package provided by Lew’s.
The entire field was treated to an angler celebration block party in historic San Augustine on Friday night. That event provided a great evening of fun for all of those who attended. Saturday afternoon offered all of the teams a rules meeting/registration party at Broaddus Elementary School near the event host Jackson Hill Marina. All the teams were involved in angler skill games and a drawing for a new Lowrance Locator, a new kayak and a host of other fishing related items.
A special thanks to Jackson Hill Marina and the city of San Augustine for providing a great event for the anglers and their families.
