2013 BLC Jr. High Division results
January 11, 2014Bartow High School Yellow Jackets Fishing Club
The 3rd annual Bobby Lane Cup once again reached new heights by drawing a record crowd to the rustic confines of Camp Mack. Fifteen teams participated in a Junior High Division on the Kissimmee Chain waters. Winning the Division were Shane Schmucker of Lakeland FL and Louie Echols of Sebring who teamed up to bring in a terrific 6 fish limit that weighed 23lbs. The monster sack was anchored by an 8lb 6oz. toad that Louie caught on a drop shot rig. "I thought I had a snag because there was just some dead weight when I felt the bite" stated Louie. "I set the hook and he just took off, Shane got the net and we finally got her in the boat" added Louie. The two targeted open water where they found a few rocks as the key to victory. Louie's big bass also won the Jr. high Division Big Bass Award and qualified for the FWC's Lunker Catch program. The big bag put the pair in Shaw Grigsby's boat which served as the hot seat for the weigh in. Once the two young stars stopped smiling they were later seen giving some advice to Shaw, Clifford Prince and JT Kinney who all made the trip to support Bobby Lane and his family who hosted the event along with Bartow High School Jackets Bass Team.
