Marble Falls (TX) SAF High School Fishing Club Holds Club Tournament

What a great day on Lake Marble Falls!

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

1st            Hunter McNeese                   6 lbs    3 oz (photo attached)

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!
