Sweep High School team tournaments for 2014

2014 State High School Bass Team Champs make a clean sweep.  Tumwater High School T-Bird Carl Jackson and Selah High School Viking Brodie Trapp won the third and final high school bass tournament of the year held on Riffe Lake in South West Washington’s Lewis County.

Turn out for teams was low with just three competing, Team R.A. Long Lumberjacks from Longview, WA. With Cully Scroggins and Jordan Plank finished in second place with three small mouth weighing 5.29 lbs. Followed by Max Hamack of Kamiak High Knights & Austin Yancey of the Pateros High Billy Goats who teamed up with two small mouth bass for third place with 4.17 lbs.

 But this tournament was dominated by this years State High School Champs who finished with a five fish limit of 17.86 lbs and big fish of the tournament, a 4.04 small mouth hawg.

Carl Jackson a Tumwater High T-Birds and Brodie Trapp a Selah High Vikings finished the year by finishing on top of all three high school tournaments held this year. Starting out at the Moses Lake high school challenge, open to all state high schools that wanted to field a team, and then the following week at Lake Chelan. Winning the High School State Bass Team Championship and advancing to the 10 State Western Conference Championship to be held this fall on Clearlake California, and with a win at Clear Lake a chance to move on to the National High School Bass Team Championship and $10,000 in scholarships.

And again at this the third and final Riffe Lake High School Challenge they demonstrated their ability to adapt to changing conditions, after weeks of descent weather with sunny warm conditions, mother nature through a curve with cold front that dropped the temperature 25 degrees with wind and rain to make for tough fishing conditions. Carl & Brodie slowed down with a variety of presentations, with no single lure standing out as the most productive. They had seven good bites all day using tubes, jigs & Texas rigged craws to bring five nice fish to the scale.

Washington State Bass Federation will be sending a great team of Student Anglers with Carl Jackson & Brodie Trapp to represent Washington as our High School Bass Team Champions at the Western Conference High School Championships this fall. Information about the Student Angler Federation for high schools students to join can be found on our State web site. ( Click on high school heading.

Team Carl Jackson & Brodie Trapp win the
Washington State High School Bass Team Championship.

           Washington’s Lake Chelan’s crystal clear water surrounded by foot hills and cascade mountains was the setting for this years High School Bass Team State Championship. For the second week in a row, the team of Brodie Trapp Selah high school Vikings and Carl Jackson of the Tumwater high school T-birds came out on top by less than a ¼ of an ounce margin to over take the second place team, of two time Junior state champion Max Hamack of the Kamiak high school Knights and Austin Yancey of the Pateros high school Billy goats, and third place team, Nathan Portch, this years Junior State Champion of the University high school Titan’s from Spokane, and teammate Austin Zetty of the Duvall high school Red Wolfs.

          Carl & Brodie just came off winning the Moses Lake High School Challenge the weekend before the state championship, and maintained their focus to finish on top at Lake Chelan with 15.70 lbs and big fish of the tournament a 3.95 lbs small mouth.  Second place finishers Max and Austin culled their way up to make for an exciting weigh in with 15.52 lbs., Followed by Nathan and Austin with 13.41 lbs for third. All teams had their five fish limit.

 Weather had set the lake up perfect for all teams to weigh in some nice bags of fish. The wind can be a problem this time of year, but laid down throughout the tournament. The water temperature indicated fish had moved shallow for the spawn, and all the teams took advantage of those conditions to catch and cull up for the weigh in.

          Thanks go out to all the boat captains, local bass club member Kim Skarr of the Chelan Bass Club volunteered to captain a boat, along with Jason Portch of Spokane and Jeff Jackson of Olympia.

          Carl & Brodie had to overcome a weather change from warm summer like weather for a week to a twenty-degree drop in the temperature and a cold front with twenty-five mile and hour winds to shut the fish down. Fish were moving up to spawn and then pulled off due to the weather change and the water became stirred up, with low visibility.

Nathan Portch and Tanner Boday finished second with Max Hamack and Austin Zetty third. Austin Yancey had to team up by himself to finish fouth.
