Trento Wert Wins his 1st Jr. Bassmaster event bringing in 11.90 pounds of bass. Wert moves up just outside the top five in the standings after winning on Lake Toho getting him closer to a top five finish and securing his trip to the 2015 Bassmaster Classic if he can hold on. Cooper wins his 2nd event in a row keeping him at the top in the older age division. Cooper weighed in 14.56 pounds at Toho. Cooper has also weighed in the 2 biggest bags of the year so far. The big "o" is next and as we all know, no lead is safe on any lake, especially Okeechobee. The big "O" is known for big bass freaks and 20 plus pound bags. This could prove to be the game changer for some and keep things interesting for sure. Good luck to all and see you on the Big "O"
Brice Goff, Rookie to the Lakeland Junior Bassmasters wins his age division weighing in over 12 pounds pushing him straight to the top of the leader board. Chris Cooper hauls in over 15 pounds of fin freaks to win the older age division advancing him to the top as well. Both of these anglers now lead the pack in their respected age divisions keeping them strong in the running for the Angler Of The Year title and one tournament closer to that trip to the 2015 Bassmasters Classic. We have 7 more tournaments that will decide it all. Toho is next and I am expecting some big bags to be brought to the scales. We have some of the best anglers in the state of Florida. Those at the top could stumble and if they do there is always someone in the shadows waiting to pounce. Someones going to catch a monster bag on Toho, Who will it be? Hold you heads high and always strive to be the best you can be in all that you do!!
Once again not so great weather for the Lakeland Junior Bassmasters, However some faired better than others. Most anglers braved the wind and some even got a little rain. After the second tournament of the year we have some anglers stepping up, getting it done and making the veterans nervous. After all, this year more than ever everything is on the line, including a trip to attend the 2015 Bassmaster Classic with Van Soles. O Yea, Top 5 in each age group courtesy of Van Soles will be taken to root him on at the 2015 Bassmaster Classic on Lake Hartwell in South Carolina. Jonathan Jones wins the 11-14 age division giving him a boost to the top with Bryson Temples taking 2nd. Kyle Stafford finishes 1st in the 15-18 division followed by Dalton Akins comming in 2nd. This is the year to top all years with so much ridding on those top 5 positions. Plenty of time left in the season, and anything can happen. Winterhaven Chain, here come the Lakeland Junior Bassmasters March 8th. Good Luck to all and hopefully we will have some good weather.
