  • Student Angler League Tournament Trail

    Student Angler League Tournament Trail #2 launched from Campbell Landing on the Sampit River in Georgetown on November 7. Nearly a dozen and one half boats took to fishing no boundaries for either red drum or bass. Some boat coaches went north toward Conway while some went south toward Charleston and some stayed in Winyah Bay.
    In the red drum high school division, the “Spot Tail Hunters” with Noah Payne of Rosemary Middle in Andrews and Collin Newtwon of Waccamaw High in Pawley’s Island took first with two fish at 9.10 pounds. Second went to a pair of Waccamaw High anglers, Daniel Rourk and Asher Damon. The “Fish Slayers” had two fish at 6.34 pounds. The high school big fish went to Ben Cooper of Conway High from “Team Coward” who took a picture with a 27.5 inch red drum and then released the fish.
    In the red drum middle school division, no anglers brought in fish within the slot of 15-23 inches. “Southern Salt” member Charlie Holmes sent in a picture at 24.25 inches so he was rewarded big fish. In the bass middle school division, no anglers have registered so that division is wide open for the taking.
    In the high school bass division with only two boats registered, each pair made the scales and won gift certificates. All divisions award a finish of first or second along with big fish. Georgetown’s Bass Team with Chase Todd and Lauren Dyer with 5 fish at 6.96 pounds took first and big fish at 2.11 pounds. Second place went to Bradley Thompkins and River Squires, the “River Ratz” of Conway High with one fish at .82 pounds.
    The rest of the trail resumes in 2016 from Sampit on February 20 and March 5 with a make up date on April 16. For more information, go to
