Sherfield and Rushing Win Tennessee High School Fishing State Championship on Kentucky Lake

The weather has not been our friend over the last several weeks for fishing tournaments.  Once again this weekend, severe weather moved through the area on Friday and left some tough fishing conditions for the anglers that came to the SAF Tennessee High School State Championship at Kentucky Lake at Beech River Pearl Harbor Ramp.  Even with the windy conditions we still had two great events for the Tennessee Youth Program.

On the Junior side, the West TN Student Bass Trail team of Westin Carver and Allison Carter won the Junior State Championship with 6-13 pounds.  Their limit was anchored with a chunky 3-11 lunker for Big Bass Honors as well.  Finishing second was the Upper Cumberland Junior Bass Team of Carson Everley and Gunner Robbins with 2-03 pounds.  Congratulations to those Junior teams.

On the High School side, the Brighton Cardinal team of Jaxon Sherfield and Jack Rushing put a massive sack of 22-10 on the scales with a 7-02 Lew’s Big Bass Lunker to win the High School State Championship for Tennessee.

Another good limit of 15-08 finishing second was the West TN Student Bass Trail team of Lloyd Moore and Hayden Ramsey.  Another West TN Student Bass Trail team of Hunter Sims and Harrison Overman placed third with 8-14.  Luke Benson and Mason McCLintock finished fourth with 7-09 and Ticker Wollney and Carter Smith finished fifth with 5-04 pounds.  Anglers reported catching their fish on mostly crawfish colored crankbaits, Red Eye Shad boats and chatterbaits.
