OKEECHOBEE — The Big O Teen Anglers held their September tournament on Saturday, Sept. 24 out of Okee-Tantie with 15 anglers participating. It was a very tough day of fishing with most anglers not catching a single bass. There were only nine fish caught weighing in at 8.64 pounds. The largest bass caught was in the 9-13 age group at 1.57 pounds by Baylee Stephens.
This month’s standings for April were as follows:
9-13 Age Group
• Lane James placed first with 3.82 pounds,
• Devin Diehl placed second with 1.74 pounds, and,
• Baylee Stephens placed third with 1.57 pounds and Big Fish weighing 1.57 pounds.
Every month boat captains t volunteer their Saturday morning to the youth anglers. Thanks go to Terry Seabolt, Paul Lynch, Justin Whidden, Jamie Stephens, Patrick Cote, Norris Newhouse, David Diehl and Billy Ellerbee.
