Highland Rebels Fishing Team (AR) holds first event of 2012 on Bull Shoals!

The Highland Rebels Bass Fishing Team from Highland Arkansas held its 1st overnight event of 2012. This is the clubs 4th function since starting up last fall. We had a total of 13 student anglers as well as 8 participating boat captains there. The tournament was held at Bull Shoals Lake in Bull shoals Arkansas. The weather was cold, gloomy, and overcast. Fishing was tough but some teams managed to bring fish to the scales.  The winning team of Emma Johnson and Brittney Redding, the two of their 3 girls on the team, said it was tough. They caught their 4 total fish on shaky heads and suspended jerkbaits in around 40 feet of water.  The second place team of Carter Kaiser and Alex Graddy brought one nice Kentucky to the scales. They caught most of their fish of the day on finesse worms and jerkbaits over about 30 feet of water. The 3rd place team of Chase Hutchings and Bill Johnson, boat captain, brought one Kentucky to the scales.

 Previous to all this excitement, they all enjoyed grilled hamburgers and hot dogs.  It was a fun night of hanging with friends and organizing fishing tackle.  The team stayed at the dogwood lodge at Bull Shoals. Thanks to boat captain Mr. Jeff Johnson for all his help with organizing this event and getting our rooms. We are looking forward to a fun year with our team. We currently have 14 members and rapidly growing! Thanks to all of our boat captains and everyone who has helped with this team!
