FAN held its third qualifier of the season at Choke Canyon Reservoir on Saturday, March 2, 2024. Hosted by Bass Club of Champions, presented by Kistler Rods, with 213 student anglers and captains attending. We had a traditional blast off following the National Anthem sung by Bass Club of Champions LBJ winners Truitt Tucker and Owen Thorton along with a prayer from Cibolo Creek Community Church’s very own Kristin Burford. The weather was perfect, but fishing was a little tough. 71 teams gave it their best effort for a shot at the win and earn those crucial AOY points. These anglers fished hard for the chance to qualify for the 2023-2024 FAN Championship with over $15,000 in scholarships, prizes, and the coveted Angler(s) of the Year title.
