Jones and Vennom Win on Okeechobee!

Posted by director on April 28, 2014

BigO6.jpgBigO1.jpgJonathan Jones takes his 2nd Junior Bassmaster win in the younger age division this season bringing 16.53 pounds of bass out of Lake Okeechobee. Jones takes over the Angler of the Year race with this win and hopes to hang on with 6 more events left. And WHAT, out of nowhere, Richard Vennum, new to the Junior Bassmasters, shows off his skills on Lake Okeechobee weighing in a whopping 20.07 pounds of fin freak bass straight out of Lake Okeechobee. Lake Okeechobee was good to most, and with the weather turning more windy than most liked, showed it's true, unpredictable self. This bothered some anglers, confused some anglers, and helped some anglers. This is why it's called fishing and can be one of the most rewarding yet disappointing sports out there; however, it's just for that reason that the anglers on the Lakeland Junior Bassmasters Team are out there. Whether they are bothered, confused or just downright disappointed, they keep on fishing, and those that never give up will prevail in the end! I am honored and proud to be a part of this organization, and so should each angler, parent, and volunteer that helps make the Lakeland Junior Bassmaster's what they are today. See you on Kissimmee, and good luck to all!
