The Northern Open High School Fishing Championship on Mille Lacs Lake in Isle, Minn., awarded this season’s final qualifying spots as it closed out the Student Angler Federation’s 2016 regular season.
Excitement mounted as the Prior Lake High School team of Mason Reveling and Ben Provost and the Central Catholic High School team of Bailey Bleser and Andrew Daniels brought identical five bass limits to the scales. The teams weighed in 21 pounds 6 ounces to sit atop the standings and earn two of the final three regional qualifying berths.
Joining Prior Lake and Central Catholic high school anglers at the Central Conference Regional are Brainerd High School anglers, Caleb Nagel and Ares Soukup, who were just off pace with a 21 pound 4 ounce bag.
Special thanks to Dan Palmer and the Cabela’s North American Bass Circuit staff, as well as, the event host, Mac’s Twin Bay Resort.
Regional competitions begin with the Southeast Conference Championship on Lake Cumberland September 17 in Somerset, Ky. The top 10 percent from each TBF/FLW state championship field and the top three teams from each of the seven TBF/FLW Opens advance to a Conference Championship event. The top 10 percent of each conference championship field will then advance to the High School Fishing National Championship, in the spring of 2017. The High School Fishing national champions will each receive a $5,000 scholarship to the school of their choice.
