Lake Texoma Winners West Division

Lake Texoma THSBA champions

  We started off the day by heading to our first spot at the south end of the lake. We arrived around 6:30am and had to wait until 7:00 for ‘’lines in.’’
We started it off with an a-rig and kept throwing it all day, the first couple cast we were pretty confident as bass started to school up on some fish. Around the 7-8 cast i hooked on to a pretty good small mouth, that basically was a confidence booster after seeing guys beside us catch acouple. Later on in the day we kept working the same stretch and throwing the same way. We ended up catching acouple more decent keepers.

    I had been keeping there arreators on all day so the fish would stay maintained and healthy but not realizing my graphs and motor were on the same battery. So Justin, our boat captain thought of it and said, ‘’try turning over the motor, as i did it didnt even budge to start. So that was a big problem. Justin ended up re- wiring the extra battery to the motor using needle nose plyers.:) so this ended up us running around the lake for about 20 minutes to try and recharge the other battery.

    After going through all this trouble we came back to our first spot and started throwing agin, we were a little discouraged wondering if the fish in the box would be ok. After about 3 hours past we kept hammering, my cousin (partner) drake ended up hooking on to about a 3 pound large mouth. We had 5 fish in and needed to cull out acouple. It was about 1:30 at this time as i got my a rig hung on a rock. I was jerking and popping it trying to set it free as a small mouth loaded up on it and started swimming. I set the hook and landed him. He ended up waying about 2.5lb. So we culled out the smallest bass and new we needed to keep these fish alive to go weigh in.

    It was 3:00 and we pulled our lines out and headed in. we knew we had a decent bag, so we took off to weigh in’s. We pulled up and we were the last ones to weigh in. everyone’s jaw dropped when we were walking up with our bag, so me and drake started to get pretty happy as we took the stage. We ended up with 12.39 to take the lead. We got a couple pictures and sat in line to see if we won it. And we did, our first tournament ever to win me and drake were very exited along with justin who has fished lots and lots of tournaments before.

The teanm of Drake Heid - Blake Heid(The cousins) from Weatherford Christian had 5 for 12.39. 


It is the goal of the Texas High School Bass Association to provide a venue where high school students have the opportunity to compete in organized tournaments while establishing strict guide lines and academic standards that will allow our student anglers to excel in the class room and on the lake.
