That’s a wrap! 70 teams made their way to Lake Conroe, April 30th/May 1st, to compete in the 21/22 Championship Presented by Abu Garcia, Berkley Fishing, Academy Sports + Outdoors and Kistler Rods. They would battle the top middle and high school anglers in Central and South Texas for a chance at over $15,000 in scholarships and prizes. 🎣

Hosting the pre-tournament meeting was First Baptist Church Conroe. Over 400 student anglers, captains, and parents gathered in the gymnasium for a few hours of fun and food. âœï¸

We were honored to hear from our guest speaker, Clark Wendlandt. Clark spoke about his love for family, friends, fishing, and our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. He is truly an inspiration to our anglers and we couldn’t be more grateful for his support. ðŸ™

We recognized Anglers of the Years Eli Christian and Cooper Kennell with the South Division and Michael Evans and Holt Avery with the Central Division. They we awarded their FAN AOY Scholarships, Berkley Ultimate Fishing Tackle certificate for $250, and will receive their FAN OT Wear AOY Jersey’s! ðŸ†

FAN also took some time to send off our seniors. Many of which have been part of the FAN Family from our inception. 😊

Rudy’s BBQ fed everyone a delicious meal and we closed the evening with some door prizes and raffle items. The anglers left with big aspirations of catching those big Conroe bass and taking home one of those big scholarship checks. 🥩
