Lake Yale

We had a great turnout for the 2020-21 Marion County Youth Bassmasters season! We had 5 Junior teams and 8 High School teams make it out to see what Lake Yale had to offer up! Taking home the win in the Junior Division was the team of Beau Inman and Jacob Spect with 11.61lbs! Close behind in 2nd was Landon Haynes fishing solo with 9.71lbs and the 3.15lb big bass on the Junior Side. Rounding out the top 3 was solo angler Justin Pitts with 7lbs even! The High School Division straight hammered on em! Taking home the win was the team of Tyson Verkaik and Claude Lofting with 22.09lbs! Claude also took home big bass honors with his 7.46lb Lake Yale Giant! Close behind in 2nd was the team of Landon Haynes and Bo Wiley with 19.54lbs and rounding out the top 3 was Dalton Loos and John Walker with 14.04lbs! Huge thanks to the parents and boat captains for volunteering and making this event possible! Huge shoutout to our sponsors! 44 Tackle Co., Gill Reaper Lures, and Fitzgerald Fishing, without sponsors like these we would not have all the awesome prizes and giveaways!
