Third place went to Alex Torok and Jared Hoffman from Lake City High School with four fish that weighed 5 pounds 1 ounce.

IMG_1417A special thanks goes out to Brian Ashton and the ID TBF for running and supporting the event.

The 2016 Idaho State Championship was a two-person (team) event for students in grades 7-12. The top 10 percent from each TBF/FLW state championship field and the top three teams from each of the seven TBF/FLW Opens will advance to a Conference Championship event.

Regional competitions begin with the Southeast Conference Championship on Lake Cumberland September 17 in Somerset, Ky.  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.
