  • North Johnston Team Wins Youth Tournament

    Fourteen teams showed up for the Buckhorn Reservoir High School Team Tournament, hosted by the Clayton High bass club. The open event, consisting of two high school anglers and one adult boat captain, included teams from Clayton, North Johnston, South Johnston, Corinth Holders, and Hunt high schools. A first of its kind for the area, the tournament event allowed these young fishermen a chance to test their bass angling skills against fellow high school competitors while learning valuable lessons and techniques from their adult boat captains. Valuable prizes and trophies were handed out to the top four teams.

    Using a combination of lipless crank baits and jigs for their pattern, North Johnston anglers, Tyler Little and Chase Crocker stole the show with a massive weight of 21.30 pounds for their five fish catch. Crocker also landed the lunker for the event with a bass tipping the scales at 7.64 pounds. Little and Crocker were awarded matching first place trophies and each received a rod & reel combo for their finish. Crocker added an additional trophy to his collection for the lunker award.

    Clayton anglers, Zach Greene and Mason Medlin, settled into the second position with their overall catch of 13.09 pounds. Greene and Medlin were rewarded for their efforts with matching second place trophies and tackle bags.

    Ethan Howard and Chris Chavez, another team from the Clayton High club, filled the third position with their catch of 9.81 pounds earning the two anglers a pair of tackle bags of their own.

    Landing in the fourth position with 8.45 pounds was the Clayton High tandem of Cameron Reynolds and Rodney Rowe. Reynolds and Rowe also earned a pair of tackle bags for their finish.
