Chatuge fishing team wins Angler of the Year race
The Chatuge Anglers High school fishing team of Caz Anderson and Luke Barrett won the 2018 Georgia Bass Nation High School Angler of the Year points race. The season points race is decided over eight one-day tournaments throughout the state of Georgia. The duo entered the season with lofty goals of qualifying for both state and national B.A.S.S. High School tournaments and earning a top three finish in AOY.
The goal of state qualifying was completed at the first tournament of the year on Lake Sinclair where the team finished in seventh place out of 153 competing teams. Anderson and Barrett then completed their second goal on April 14 when they finished in 11th place out of around 150 teams in a national open tournament on lake Hartwell in SC, leaving only the last and hardest AOY goal to complete.
