I have to say I am the Proudest Jr. Club President in the State. The Lakeland Junior Bassmaster members showed their stuff on Lake Kissimme durring the B.A.S.S. Team State Championship this past weekend. We took 4 of the top 5 team positions in the Junior Division and 3 of the top 5 team positions in the High School Division. Roger Weigel and Brice Goff took 1st Place in the Junior Division and are now both the Florida State Team Champions. Chase Dimotta and Jonathan Jones trailed by ounces to take the number 2 slot in the Junior Division. Brice Goff brought in a 9.22 pound fin freak to clinch big bass honors. In the High School Division Junior Bassmaster members Hunter Adrian and Chandler Cornelius took the 2nd place position followed by Matt Bedenbaugh and Kyle Stafford rounding out the top 3. All four angler were representing George Jenkins High School, one of the many new High Schools getting in on the action. All I can say is great job to all Lakeland Junior Bassmasters and thanks for such awesome representation from all anglers, boat captains and parents. See everyone on July 12th, Lake Shipp!! Y E S Lake Shipp!
Brice Goff Takes top honors in the 11-14 Age Division on Hatch! Goff remians in the lead for the angler of the year race as well. This is Goff's 2nd Jr. Bassmasters win this season keeping his competitors at bay. Goff is not only a great angler but carries himself well with the other anglers and is a good representation of the sport. Reid the new guy, shows up with a bang! His first tournament and pulls out a win in the older age division letting every one know he is here to compete. Congrats to both winners and thanks to all the anglers, boat captains,parents and tournament staff that help make this program what it is today! See you on Shipp July 12th, good luck to all!
Conner Price claims his first Jr. Bassmasters win of the season on the Kissimmee Chain and slides into that top 5 spot! Price made a big move this past weekend and puts himself in a good position for a comeback on the Angler of The Year title and that trip to the 2015 Bassmasters Classic. He has some work to do, and with four other guys determined to do the same, that won't make it easy. Jones and Goff remain within a pound of each other battling for the same. Speaking of easy, Chris Cooper wins his third event this season making it look easy. Talk about on FIRE! Chris Cooper is on Fire. Jackson Williams has got to be feeling the heat as Cooper is now less than a pound away from taking over the Top Dog position. Williams is always right there and in the game, so this should get pretty interesting. Can Williams hang on to that #1 position? Is this just the start of a Conner Price comeback? Lake Hatchineha, June 7th, will tell the story. See you there!
