2015 High School Results


May 16, 2015 Moses Lake High School Team Open Results





1. Cully Scroggins & Nathan Portch   19.10 3.74
2. Carl Jackson & Brodie Trapp 11.50  
3. Tanner Boday & Cole Talbert 9.98  
4. Blair Peters & Brtandon Beutler 8.57  
5. Max Hamack & Austin Yancy 1.90  


1st - Cully Scroggings & Nathan Portch, 2nd place Brodie Trapp & Carl Jackson on right 3rd place Cole Talbert & Tanner Boday.



Portch and Scroggins flex for another win at the Moses Lake high school open, shy of an eight pound margin with a weight of 19.10lbs  and big fish of the tournament a 3.74lb  small mouth, even though they weight a 4.06lb but changed their minds thinking the other was heavier. They still managed to have the big fish of the tournament.  Pre fish scouting paid off to bring in some small mouth beauties for a limit to win. Bed fishing was their primary method even with poor water clarity.  Just behind at Second place was last year winners Carl Jackson and Brodie Trapp who also brought in a limit of nice small mouth for 11.50lbs and second place.

Third place went to Tanner Boday and Cole Talbert who managed to weigh a five fish limit just shy of ten pounds with 9.98lbs of small mouth, followed by fourth place finishers Blair Peters and Brandon Beutler with another five fish limit of small mouth weighing 8.57lbs, boat trouble plagued them most of the day but they persisted to bring in a nice bunch of fish. Max Hamack and Austin Yancey struggled to get the big fish bite and ended in fifth with 1.90 lbs.

The Moses lake tournament brought an end to the 2015 high school season along with two state champions saying goodbye. Carl Jackson with team mate Brodie Trapp swept the 2014 high school season with three wins and the State Championship, Brodie has another year and opportunity to repeat as the first two time state champion next season, as does Nathan Portch the 2015 state champion who was the teammate of Cully Scroggins, They won who both high school tournaments this year. Cully is the first in the State and North West to sign a four year fishing scholarship to Bethel University of Tennessee. Hopefully this is an indication of the future for high school fishing in Washington State.

Both Carl and Cully and team mates have been at the top of their game the last couple of years, they and all the other students that team up and compete in our high school program have made this the most successful year to date for the Washington State Bass Federation. I can’t say enough about the dedication, drive and skill I have witnessed from all the youth in the program.  Cully and Carl are an examples of their dedication by what they have accomplished the last couple of years.

Both joined an adult club the first chance they had, and started fishing the qualifiers as did Brodie Trapp this year,  Are adult clubs would do well to take notice because that rumbling  noise you hear are the high school aces headed your way to fish as adults in your clubs.

We want to thank all of our sponsors for the great gear and support they give our student and our organization. Spokane Valley Marine, Nixon Marine, Strike King lures, St. Croix rods, Dobyns rods, Jon’s N.W. Outdoors, Cabela’s, Lake City Western Vigilante’s, The Prop Shop, Vicious Fishing, The Washington National Guard, and Limit out marine for throwing in some gear.

SCROGGINS & PORTCH claim Washington State High School Team Championship.

Cully Scroggins of R.A. Long high school in Longview Washington is finishing his final year on a high note with winning the state championship after signing with Bethel University of Tennessee for a four year bass fishing scholarship.  Nathan Portch a junior at University high school of Spokane was the 2014 Washington Junior State Champion and will have another year to possibly become Washington’s first two time TBF state champion next year.

Pot Holes Reservior was the site this year of the largest number of teams since the inception of the state high school championship. Fourteen teams took to the water with the weather sunny and mild with the water temperatures pushing the fish up shallow to spawn in numbers.

Nathan and Cully along with Nathans dad Jason went deep into the dunes to work beds and site fish in an area they had come across while pre-fishing, a couple of hours in and they were culling to upgrade their weight  to 18.40 when they ran into second place finishers Carl Jackson & Brodie Trapp, 2014 State Champions who were also working bedding fish they too had found in practice in the same part of the lake.

Brodie, Carl and Carl’s dad Jeff ended up within sight of Nathan & Cully the last few hours of their day comparing catches from a distance to see what size fish each were keeping . They ended up second with 17.39.

Little did they know how close they were to being third place?  Brandon Beutler, Blair Peters and his dad Mike had a slow morning and struggled the first part of the day. They cycled a couple of areas  that replenished with fish that were moving up and finished the day with 17.37 just shy of second place and had the big fish of the tournament with a 4.85 large mouth.
