RE: FAN High School Fishing Series Event #3
April 17, 2014
FAN High School Fishing Series brings event number three to Lake LBJ in the beautiful Texas Hill Country. This will be the final qualifying event for the 2014 championship and the race for angler of the year is rapidly closing. The top 50% of the representing High School fishing teams will earn the right to compete in the FAN High School Championship this fall with the chance to win over $5000 in scholarships and prizes.
With an impressive win on Lake Austin and 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 moved them into the top spot for AOY points. However, it is still anyone’s to win with mere points separating the top 10 anglers, and a solid performance on Lake LBJ will be all it takes to make the leap to the top spot.
