BHS now has a fishing team

This year, BHS started a fishing team. Team members were Rains Craft and Peyton Jackson. They competed in the first ever fishing tournament at the Lake of the Ozarks.

On Saturday for the PTA tournament they placed 47th out of 113 boats. They weighed in 3 fish for a total of 8.89 lbs. The weather was not their friend at 40 degrees and raining ALL. DAY. LONG!

The exact words from the boys -- "It was brutal!!" Boat Captain Dale Craft was beyond impressed with them not giving up to weigh in early. They wanted the 5 fish limit.

Sunday for the NYFA tournament, with beautiful weather, the boys weighed in 5 fish totaling 14.22 lbs. They placed 12th out of 247 boats. Peyton Jackson snagged a 5.64 lbs. fish placing 5th for the Big Bass.

Next tournament is May 1st and 2nd at Table Rock Lake.
