Lake Kerr Write Up

Lake Kerr was very stingy to our Youth Anglers! Nevertheless, our Youth Anglers managed to catch a few! Here are how the divisions played out! Taking home the win with the only limit in the Jr Division was the team of Cash Liles and CJ Slayer with 4.24lbs! Close behind in 2nd with just three Kerr keepers was Landon Haynes with 3.30lbs and rounding out the top 3 was Tyler Thurmond and Bowen Reeves with 2.34lbs! Henry Walker took home big bass honors with his 1.30lb Lake Kerr Kicker! In the High School Division Rj Sanderfer and Cooper Hughes took home the win with 6.05lbs! Right on their heels in 2nd was Gavin Kennemer and Joel Lister with 5.74lbs. Gavin's 2.25lb Lake Kerr Toad anchored their bag and took home Big Bass Honors! Rounding out the top 3 was Caleb Couch with 5.00lbs! All top 3 teams had a limit. Next Stop for the Marion County Youth Bassmasters will be Lake Weir December 12th @ Carney Island Park! FYI! The next Bass Nation Event is coming up on Okeechobee Dec 4th and 5th! Check out for further info! Also keep an eye out on for the Jan 23rd Youth Open!!!
