(No title)

The weather was very iffy leading up to the 2024 Kansas TBF High School and Junior State championships on April 27th. Melvern Lake was forecasting Thunderstorms and winds 20-30 MPH and higher gusts most of the week prior. Mother Nature smiled and got rid of the storms and reduced the winds to a safer level.

Fishing was very tough with several empty livewells at Weigh-In.

The High School team of Nicholas Herman and Laiken Emanual, captained by Tate Herman had the only multi catch, 3 largemouth for 5 lbs, 10 oz. The Junior team of Hudson Komarek and Reed Rochel, captained by Scott Komarek had a beautiful smallmouth that weighed 2 lbs 10 oz.

All in all, a great day for the youth. The winning teams were presented with their trophies and Lew’s American Hero Spinning Combos donated by TBFKS. Also, Doman’s Outdoors in Lyndon, KS donated 2 very nice tackle bags and 5 spinning combos for door prizes.
