We could not have asked for a better day to kick off the FAN Central 21/22 Season at Jones Brothers Park on Lake Travis. 327 student anglers and captains ascended the lake to a beautiful day with temperatures in the high 70″s with a slight breeze.
A total of 109 teams gave it their best effort for a shot at the win and also for those highly important AOY points and the chance to qualify for the 2022 Championship with over $15,000.00 in scholarships and the coveted Angler(s) of the Year title.
Georgia Rushing and Utah Anderson with Captain Jerry Gold representing 5th Day Anglers took the win with a five fish limit weighing 10.29 pounds. They both took home a trophy, Kistler Rods and valuable points. Captain Jerry won the Academy Sports+Outdoors Gift Card. – The smiles say it all. Good job team!
Finishing third was the team of Kasey Boatright and Ismael Velazquez with Captain Nick Boatright with a five fish limit tipping the scale at 9.20. They each won an Abu Garcia Revo X in addition to trophies and a chance to head to the Championship in May.
