The Lake Parker Fun Bike Bash! What a way to kick off the season. The Lakeland Junior Bassmasters will compete on Jan 11th at Lake Parker out of Sertoma Park on Memoorial Blvd. Weigh in will be at 2PM hosted by the Fun Bike Center. The Lakeland Police Department will provide a Police escort across the street to the Fun Bike Center and we will do a drive the boat to the scales style weigh in. Also on hand will be the F.W.C. and the Florida Fish and Game with a live well tank to keep the fish alive and release after weigh in. B.A.S.S. Elite Series pro Bobby Lane will be at weigh-in! This should be a great event, and I want to thank everyone coming together to make it a success. See you at the scales!
What a wild weekend at Camp Mack on the Kissimmee Chain for the Jr. Bassmaster Classic. The young anglers fished through it all, high winds, a little rain and a very tough bite to figure out! Chris Cooper and Jackson Williams take top honors at the 2013 Jr. Bassmasters Classic. Cooper, in 3rd on day one of the classic, pulls through on day two. Cooper weighs in 24.55 pounds of bass to win the 15-18 age division. Ferguson takes 2nd and Linsinbigler takes 3rd to round out the older age division. Jackson Williams was in 4th position after day one and makes his come back weighing in a 2 day total of 18.9 pounds of bass. Walters takes 2nd, and Barnett finishes out the top 3 in the younger age division. What a great season once again from all our anglers, boat captains and parents. I appreciate each and every person that helps make this trail possible. See you at the Banqet!!
