The pair of sophomore’s watched quietly as the scales spun their weight which turned out to be the winning bag at 11lbs and 8oz to give them the Ohio title.
The pair of smiling anglers both used a Booyah Spinner Bait to catch their fish and also win the Booyah Big Bag award for the largest sack of the fish of the day. "We used the spinner bait most of the day targeting mostly fallen wood to catch our limit today" commented Eddleblute. We only caught 7 fish today but they were all keepers and we really had to grind it out especially with the bad weather" added the smiling pair.
Finishing just behind the ladies in the third and final regional qualifying spot was the team of Alex Redwine and Harbor Lovin from the Cincinnati Youth Bass Club who had a very respectable 9lbs 4oz.
The top three teams from this event qualified for the Central Conference Regional Championship to be held later this fall.
Winning the Lew’s Big Bass Award was the team of Jason Short and Matthew Schlabach who brought a beautiful 6lb Alum Creek Large mouth to the scales to capture prize of two terrific Lew’s reels.
The TBF/FLW State Championship series continues next week with events in North Carolina, Colorado, California, And Washington State.
