FAN HSF Kicks of the 2018/19 Season and the South Division

FAN HSF kicks off the 2018/19 season and the South Division on Coleto Creek Reservoir August 25th hosted by Berkley Fishing.

 

With over $13,000.00 in Scholarship funds this season the FAN High School Fishing Tournament Series will see some of Central and South Texas’ best student anglers compete in 3 divisional qualifiers and a Wild Card event to earn a chance to compete in the 2019 Championship. Student Anglers in each division will be competing for the Academy Sports + Outdoors Angler of the Year which includes a $1000.00 Scholarship and the Berkley Select Angler Program 

“We are very excited to launch the South Division!” stated Jeff Cook Executive Director of Faith Angler Network. “We have been in prayer for this for many years asking God to show us when and how He would open the doors to this new opportunity to serve Him and grow FAN into new markets. Stacy and her family have stepped out in Faith and are building a great program. We are looking forward to supporting and serving the student anglers, captains and their parents in the San Antonio area.
 
“We are very excited to bring FAN High School Fishing to the student anglers of South Texas. We believe wholeheartedly in the mission of FAN and the sport of High School Fishing as a whole and look forward to an exciting and successful inaugural season!”  stated Stacy Berry, South Texas Division Director

With the rapidly changing lake levels on Canyon Lake we have moved the season opener to Coleto Creek Reservoir at  Coleto Creek Park.

The Coleto Creek Park and Reservoir, located midway between Victoria and Goliad, is a joint project between Coleto Creek Power and the GBRA. At normal pool elevation it covers 3,100 surface acres with 61 miles of shoreline. The main purpose of the reservoir is to serve as a cooling pond for the Coleto Creek Power coal fired power plant. The reservoir is fed through four major creeks from a 507 square mile drainage basin. The average depth is eleven feet and the reservoir maintains at a constant level.

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

Updated Information Regarding Weather for Lake Buchanan Event 2/24/18

FAN student anglers, coaches, captains, and parents:
 
Due to the forecasts of potential high winds [current forecast here], FAN is putting safety first and will be allowing participants to trailer to other ramps for the tournament and we’re providing extra time for launching and trailering.  Please note the following important details and changes for Saturday’s tournament.
 
Morning Check-In
Each team member and captain are required to check-in in person.  We will offer the morning check-in at two locations from 5:30AM-7:00AM: 
1) Llano County Park [map
2) HEB parking lot in Burnet [map]
 
Fishing Time        7:30AM2:00PM
You may launch your boat and be in the water any time after you check-in, however you are not to cast a line or fish (or even look like you are fishing) until 7:30AM (first cast start time) 
All fishing must stop at or befor2:00PM.
 
Afternoon Check-In        2:00PM3:00PM
Each team needs to have one member come to the check-in table at the weigh-in location at Llano County Park between 2:00PM-3:00PM and get an official weigh-in bag.  The scales will officially open at 2:00PM.  Check-ins after 3:00PM will be considered late and will endure the late penalties as specified in the rules.  There should be adequate truck and trailer parking available at this boat ramp.
 
Weigh-In
In order to preserve fish health, we will require you to only use a FAN provided weigh-in bag, which will be given to you at the afternoon check-in station.  We will limit how many bags are available so that we don’t have too many fish in bags at the line.  If no bags are available, you will need to wait for a bag to become available.  Once you have an official FAN weigh-in bag, please go back to your boat and fill the bag with water and your fish and promptly come to the weigh-in line.  
 
Weather
Weather can be unpredictable and can change during the hours of a tournament.  Captains please use your judgement on weather and take shelter if there are indications of lightning or if you hear thunder.  If for any reason FAN finds the weather to be too unsafe, we will make an announcement on our Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram pages.  If at any time you do not feel safe and want to leave the tournament, please just contact us and let us know.
 
New Members
Thanks for joining FAN!  Normally we give our new members a T-shirt at the morning check-in, but for this tournament please plan to see us after the weigh-in at the weigh-in trailer and we’ll get you your new member kit.
