Every fisherman/woman has dreams of catching a double digit bass, and landing a personal best during a tournament. It is something that you remember for a lifetime.

Bringing the second event of the FAN High School Series to Lake Austin in April delivered both experiences to some very happy anglers.

Eighty-eight anglers with their captains launched their boats into the 1600 acre lake on the Colorado River system in the heart of Austin. You could see the excitement of the high school anglers that traveled from as far away as Sugar Land from the South, and Era TX. to the north.

We prayed as the cool cloudy day displayed its early morning light, The National Anthem played, and then the anglers were off to test their strategies and make memories.

The clouds stayed with us throughout the day. However, that did not keep the parents and fans from the Austin 360 Bridge Park to root on their high school and favorite anglers.

With the crowd cheering, the anglers made their way to the stage to share their catches with the fans and supporters and to see how they would compare to the other competitors

Setting a new FAN High School Fishing Series weight record with, 20.10 pounds was the FAN High School Bass Team of Preston Franke and Andrew Zeigler, including a 7.97 pound “kicker fish” . They fished the mid lake area not traveling far from the launch area, working docs with  TX rigged craws, and the A-Rigged swim baits. Preston and Andrew’s win included each an Abu Garcia ProMax casting reel paired up to a Abu Garcia Varitas 7’ Medium Heavy action rod, and an impressive first place trophy. This win places them in the lead for Anglers of the Year race.

Captain Adam Artnak won the Academy Captain award of a $100 gift card.
