JV anglers, Will Emerson and Jacob Roberts reeled in 5 fish weighing in at 13.10 pounds. Will Emerson caught a small mouth lunker that tipped the scales at 3.99 pounds. Varsity Anglers Brody Kingsbury and Kason Blood brought in a full bag (six fish) of all smallmouth. 15.59 pounds placed them 6th for the 2023 State tournament. 2.5 inches of rain came down make the fishing conditions challenging but the Bucks persevered to make it a great day out on the water.
