Ben Jenkins and Jacob Rogers both have a big win on Rochelle, pushing them both into the top 5 positions for the year. Jenkins now takes over the number 3 position in his age division, while Rogers takes over the number 5 position in his age division. Williams and Thomas finish 2nd in their age divisions, with Hill and Schmucker rounding out the top 3. Things are constantly changing with this group of anglers, and look out Okeechobee, here come 36 of the Lakeland Junior Bass Masters. The Big O will be taken over by the best young anglers in the state of Florida. The Lakeland Junior Bass Masters took home 3 of the top 5 positions last year, and we have the experience to do it again. I can assure you, things will change in the standings after the 2 day State Championship. This is the true test of endurance as it is a 2 day competition. Who will prevail? Who will come out on top or just hang on by a thread? Get ready to rumble with some awesome Lake Okeechobee fishing!

Womack, in the 11-14 age division, wins and makes a big move ending up in the top 10 for the year's standings. Blagg and Hill are still close, battling it out for Rookie Of The Year in the 11-14 age division, while Stafford pulls out in front for Rookie Of The Year in the15-18 age division. Ferguson once again catches his limit, wins, and pulls further away from Bozeman in the Angler Of The Year race for the 15-18 age division. We have a new trophy to chase called "Draw Team of The Year," which Williams and Linsinbigler are leading with a 21.10 lb combined bag caught on Parker back in January. A lot going on, and time is slowly running out. October's tournament on Harris Chain will decide it all. Six tournaments left, and anything can happen. Keep your goals high and your dreams alive, and never give up!

Look out, Jr. Bass Master's, we have some hidden talent among us! Trenton Wert, soon to be 13 years old, has been studying Karate for the past 6-7 years. He is currently a 2nd degree black belt and hits hard! Trenton displayed his talent during the weigh in Saturday by breaking not 1, but 2 cement bricks! Who would have guessed Trenton packed such a punch for a little guy. Needless to say, he is our newly appointed head of security for the Lakeland Jr. Bass Master's. Trenton has been a member since last year, and we are proud to have him on our Jr. Bass Master's team. Keep up the good work, and good luck in all you do.
