FAN HSF “Last Chance” Wild Card Tournament Presented by Amenity Service

FAN HSF “Last Chance” Wild Card Tournament Presented by Amenity Service 

March 24th on Lake LBJ with a $1000.00 Scholarship top award.

With the 3 qualifying tournaments behind us, the stage is set for the Toyota Cedar Park Angler of the Year race and the Berkley Chase for the Champions with over $8,000 in scholarships and prizes.

As a moment of déjà vu sets in, the Lake Travis Fishing Team of Parker Wagner and Benjamin Mosely is currently leading with a 10-point margin against Joshua Maxwell and Tanner Shelton who set FAN HSF records at the Lake Buchanan tournament February 24th with a 27.99 limit including the Kistler Big Bass at 9.80 pounds.

You can see the standings here.

 
 
The Wild Card Tournament Details
 
The Wild Card tournament will be a NON-POINTS tournament where FAN will award the top 5 teams that have not already qualified by way of points. The wild card tournament will also be essential for any angler that finished in a top 10% of a qualifier but still needs one more tournament to meet your two tournament minimum requirement for the Chase.
 
We are excited to add this new element to the FAN HSF Schedule this year. We wanted to do something fun and different that allowed those student anglers who were not able to compete during one of the qualifiers to have another shot at qualifying for the Chase. Added to that our anglers love fishing Lake LBJ, and fishing LBJ in March could possibly set new records for FAN and most definitely personal best for our student anglers as this lake is as hot as it gets this time of year.
 
And to top it off, we will award the winning team a $1,000 Scholarship
