New Bern, NC – 5/6/17
NC Bassmaster High School Series (East Division) – Presented By:
Fifteen youth teams arrived Saturday at the Lawson Creek Park & Recreation Center in New Bern, NC to test their skills among fellow fishing enthusiasts for the fourth and last stop of the 2016/2017 NC Bassmaster High School Series (East) tournament trail. The day started with relatively clear and bright skies, but gave way to cloudy conditions by the end of the day. Faced with a strong southwest wind and a falling water level, the teams had to constantly adjust throughout the event to entice bites.
Overcoming the challenges thrown their way, the team of Jonathan Lanier and Dylan Lechtrecker secured their first win with an impressive five fish catch of 12.22 lbs, anchored by a nice 4.73 lb largemouth bass. Both anglers were awarded with matching first place plaques and a pair of Kissel Krafts Custom Built Fishing Rods gift certificates to signify their win.
Andrew Suggs and Jay Prigen filled the second position with their catch of five Neuse/Trent river bass that weighed in at 8.16 lbs. The duo were awarded matching second place plaques for their effort.
Logan Jennings settled for the third position for the day with his catch of 8.03 lbs. Nicholas Godwin and Will Puckett took the fourth spot with their catch of 6.67 lbs while the tandem of Zach Brady and Cody Lanier finished out the top five with their catch of 6.50 lbs.
Food items were provided by the Collins Inc. – Youth Educational Series.
Door prizes were awarded from Z-Man Fishing Products, Solar Bat Sunglasses, Penetration Hooks, and Ranger Boats.
