(No title)

On Sunday June 25th, 2023 we held the Eastern Ontario SAF High School Championship Qualifier. It was a warm sunny day on the Bay of Quinte, the weather co-operated and the Bay was as smooth as glass.

We had 3 teams entered for this tournament, and they were pumped to blast off, at 8 AM they took off with their teams.

Team 1/  Kaileb Nadon and Connor Boates with Captain Pepe Parisien

Team 2/ Rhys Erwin and Evan Erwin with Captain James Erwin

Team 3/ Porter Hymus and Draeden Hymus with Captain Tim Lloyd

At check-in the Boys were excited to weigh.  Team 3 came to the scales first and weighed a respectable bag for their first time fishing in a Youth tournament. Next up was Team 1 with a good bag to put them in the lead, with Team 2 coming up third to weigh with a bag of 4 clones and a 5.10 lb kicker Ryhs Erwin caught was the Big Fish and his personal best!

Good Luck “Team Erwin” in the 2024 SAF National Championships

With the the lake rising upwards of 3 feet in less then a week and the water visibility less than an inch. Teams from around of the state arrived in Colchester Vt to participate in the Vermont state championships. At the end of the event big limits were arriving at the scales.

The top three teams had 5 fish limits of upwards of 16 pounds. mixed bags of small mouth and large mouth were weighed. senkos, jigs ned rigs and tubes played a big part in the catches. during the tournament more than 2 inches of rain fell and anglers had to adjust on the fly to get the work done.

First place team of Isayah Isham Ethan Bromley of Mt Abraham brought a five fish limit of 17.65 pounds. Second place goes to the team of  Maddox Salls and Blake Baker from Randolph high school. Rounding out the top 3 was the team of Maverick Misenko and Nate Conyers of the Harwood Union Highlanders. With all the recent rain and changing conditions all these anglers really shined.
