Lake Weir Write Up

We had 10 Jr teams and 9 High School teams compete at Lake Weir for our Dec tournament. Not sure if the odds are just against us, because, Weir fished very tough! Somehow though the majority of our youth anglers find out a way to catch em up! Taking home the win on the Jr Side was Tristen Crawford fishing solo with his 6.20lb sack. Taking 2nd was Michael Antonov and Henry Walker with 5.80lbs. Henry took big bass honors on the Jr side with his 3.33lb Lake Weir Toad!!! 3rd went to CJ Sayler and Cash Liles with 5.57lbs! Taking home the win on the High School side was Ethan Tuttle and Timmy Cole with their 8.93lb Sack. Ethan caught a 3.73lb Weir Hawg for Big Bass on the High School Side! 2nd went to Caleb Couch fishing solo and bagging 8.30lbs! Rounding out the top 3 was RJ Sanderfer and Cooper Hughes with 6.35lbs! Next Stop will be at Lake Sante Fe on Jan 30th! Make sure to get registered! Also want to thank everyone who donated and participated in our Holiday Raffle! It was a huge success with almost all tickets being sold! Congratulations to the winners! Until we see each other in January, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Tight Lines and God Bless you!
