The District 7 Championship on Lake Conroe kicked off with a great message from our Ministry Partner, Randy Howell. Although the message was virtual, due to the concern for safety of our anglers, his words still rang true and were enjoyed by all. Many thanks to Randy and his family for sharing his heart with our men and women!
Tournament morning we were greeted with rain, wind and a cool morning. In the water were 55 teams competing to earn a place in the National Championship and all were anxious to find the elusive “Big Bite” that this lake can provide on any given day. As the teams returned to the scales on day one there was an overall realization that the 16” length requirement was going to take its toll on the sacks hitting the scales. The word was that there were lots of fish caught but mostly in 14” to 15” variety. The teams that did catch a limit found themselves at the top of the leaderboard and we were treated to a couple of big fish to whet the appetite of all of the teams. Jason Chance caught the big fish for day one with a toad that weighed 7.73. The overall leader for the first day was the Texas East team of Jason Dew and Gary Baker with a sack weighing 18.11.
Day two saw our teams hitting the water with clear weather and cool air. The weather cooperated with us and we spent the entire day without rain. Unfortunately that also brought out the recreational boaters and our teams were subjected to some busy water which in turn affected the catch. Once again, the teams that were able to land a full limit got to see themselves crawl straight up the leaderboard. In the end it was the Texas NC team of Cameron Frowick and Kyle Brookshear hitting the scales for the two days with a catch of 33.44. The second place Texas NC team of Jimmy Sheehy and Joshua Dickens had a two day total of 31.11. Rounding out the top three teams was the Texas East team of Joshua Kieffer and Jared Pollard with a two day sack weight of 29.94. Day two big fish was caught by Erik Olson a 7.89 fatty.
We want to thank our tournament host, Visit Conroe, for a successful event. Our tournaments wouldn’t be possible without our national sponsors, BASSCAT, MERCURY, ABU GARCIA, BERKLEY, SHAKESPHERE, SPIDER WIRE, TH MARINE, POWER POLE, FROG TOGS, GATER GUARD, BASS BOAT TECH and AMPHIBIA.
A special thanks goes out to Texas East’s Jerry Wade for providing the external power at our host hotel for the whole week.
