Acree claims his first Jr. Bassmaster win in the younger age division bringing in a 3 fish limit of 9.4 pounds. Acree being relatively new to the Jr. Bassmasters came to the weigh in stage with a big smile on his face knowing his bag might just do it. Not sure who was more happy, Acree or the crowd of supporters he had in the audience. Great job by all. Cooper in the older age division does it yet again bringing in 10.2 pounds to clinch his 5th Jr. Bassmaster win this year. The boy is on fire and don't know if that fire can be put out. Cooper has a 16 pound plus commanding lead for Angler of the year with only one tournament left in the regular season. The Winter Haven Chain October 4th will decide it all. Who will be crowned Angler of the Year, Co- Angler of the year, Rookie of the year and most of all who will finish out the top five and be going to the 2015 Bassmasters Classic courtesy of Van Soles. Dont miss out on the action, and never give up. See everyone Oct 4th, Lake shipp to bring this regular season to its end on the Winter Haven Chain. Then don't forget the two day Jr, Bassmasters Classic on the Kissimme Chain Nov. 1st and 2nd going out of Camp Mac. Get your rooms now and get ready for the biggest event of the year! Good Luck to all!
Crawford claims his 2nd Jr. Bassmasters win this season and Cooper claims his 4th. Crawford brings in 9.95 pounds of largemouth bass on his home waters to claim victory. This will definatley improve his chances of a top five finish putting him closer as many anglers struggled on this body of water. Cooper struggled all day he says, but not before landing a 8.17 pound bucket mouth on his 3rd cast. This would prove to be the one and only fish he would land all day. However this one fish gave him a win with the Jr. Bassmasters, $100.00 Trophy Catch and $100.00 Tagged fish reward. All in all this has got to be one of the most rewarding fish catches we have ever had during a Jr. Bassmasters event. Well guys, two more events will decide it all. If you are in the hunt you need to buckle up and either hold your ground or make a big move. Both lakes have proven to produce 20 plus pound bags. Good luck to all and see you on September 13th for the Istokpoga Bash!
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!
