“This is our 3rd year fishing with the Hyde Park High School Bass team and competing with the FAN organization.  We would like to thank Billy Wright (Hyde Park Leader), and Faith Angler Network for all they do and always putting together well run high school fishing tournaments”

As the day went on it slowed down but we managed to cull 3 more times after 11 o’clock. The FAN high school series is great and is well worth the time. It’s a good opportunity to be on the water and the competition is definitely there.”Cole stated.

That’s how we got our biggest bass. Then during the day we started throwing Texas rig rage craws in about 16 -20 feet water in flooded timber, we got 2 of our keepers doing that. Then the last part of the day we fished a hump that was only 4ft and we got 2 small mouth throwing Texas rig rage craws again. The FAN trail is my favorite trail to fish they put on an awesome show. The stage and all the prizes are amazing I like being around all the people, it’s such a great organization they are always well planned out and organized! “Stated Preston
