MFHS SAF Fishing Club launched 8 boats with 19 student anglers into a gorgeous sunrise. We had to do some last minute shuffling to get everyone on a boat and while some had three anglers and a captain, we got it done!
None of this is possible without the generous support of our wonderful sponsors and Boat Captains! We welcomed two new boat captains on Saturday, Stan Manning from Marble Falls and Rusty Head from Buda. They joined Bill Flanary, Dusty Harkins, Gary Simmank, Collin Edwards and our 2011 Angler of the Year, Logan Clark from San Angelo State.
The results were as follows at the weigh-in:
Finish Angler Name Total Weight
2nd Trace Farley 4 lbs 4 ox
3rd Nick O’Connor 3 lbs 11 oz and BIG BASS @ 2 lbs 14 oz
4th Chris Hooten 2 lbs 12 oz
5th Drake Harkins 2 lbs 10 oz
6th Matthew Manley 2 lbs 3 oz
7th Emilie Sparks 2 lbs 2 oz (photo attached)
8th Josh Robles 2 lbs 1 oz
9th Austin Ellis 1 lb 14 oz
We are thrilled to have Emilie Sparks join our club from Buda! She is a junior and was joined by her Dad, Rusty Head who served as a Boat Captain. As you can see, Emilie did just fine at her first tournament!
BIG thanks to Tamara Delz for bringing donuts for breakfast at the launch and to Bob and Jackie Childress for providing SUBWAY party subs lunch for the whole group at the weigh in. The “MOMs” who completed the meals during the tournament were Kay Stripling, Joni Farley, Kimberlee Kohutek and LeeAnn Harkins – thanks ladies!!
Our next Club Meeting is on Monday, Nov 7th at 6:00pm, Edwards Risk Management and our tournament is on Saturday, Nov 12th on Inks Lake. PLEASE mark your calendars to help this team as a Boat Captain if you can – thanks so much.
Thanks to everyone to help make this possible!
