Herrin is “REEL” good at catching big Bass

Article, Shanie May, Writer

Some of the Herrin Tiger Fishing team took on the Toledo Bend Lake for the 2018 Mossy Oak Bassmaster High School Central Open.  It was an all day tournament on Sunday to see who could catch five fish weighing the most.  The boys had two separate boats, in the tournament against 242 other teams.  We had two boats which consisted of a boat captain and two boys.

 

Coach, Chad Parks boat captained Gunnar Halstead and Cameron Vaughn.  Gunnar and Cameron Received Thirty First place with five fish weighing 10lb and 5oz. Boat Captain, Will May with Hunter Juvers and Samuel Alstat, placed twenty first with three fish weighing 11lb 9oz.  Juvers and Alstat also qualified for the Bassmaster HIgh School Championship on Kentucky Lake later this summer.

 

Big Bass are nothing for Hunter Juvers.  At the tournament he caught a 7lb 13oz  bass, placing third in the big bass category.  Catching big bass like that isn’t easy, “I was worried to lose it because I could tell it was a big one, but I feel great I got the chance to catch this one” Hunter Juvers states.  The fish Hunter caught at this past tournament was the largest one he has got yet, although he came close last year.  At a tournament last year on Crab Orchard Lake, Samuel and Hunter got first place; “I guess Samuel is just my good luck!”  Hunter states that he is excited for this tournament coming up, and looking forward to more Herrin kids going.  He thinks they will do great!
