Chatuge Anglers leading points race

Article Image Alt Text

The Chatuge Anglers high school bass fishing team traveled to Lake Seminole in Bainbridge, Ga. for the fifth high school bass fishing tournament of the 2017-18 season. The all Hayesville High School team of Caz Anderson and Luke Barrett entered the tournament in third place in the Angler of the Year points race and had high hopes to stay near the top. 

During practice day on Friday, the team had boat troubles that ended their practice and left them without the ability to run to their fishing spots on tournament day. Instead of accepting defeat, Hayesville’s team decided to try their best to catch them close to the ramp. Fortunately that strategy worked. 

With a broken boat the team had a limit of five bass by approximately 9:30 a.m. and kept culling throughout the day.
