While the temperatures might have been rising to extreme levels during the month of August, that didn’t stop several avid fishers from Plainview and Lone Grove from getting their fill of bass on the lake.

While the temperatures might have been rising to extreme levels during the month of August, that didn’t stop several avid fishers from Plainview and Lone Grove from getting their fill of bass on the lake.

On August 7th and 8th competitors from both schools traveled to Texoma to compete in the Oklahoma Bass Nation High School series, with both teams coming away with solid results.

On Day one the Plainview Bass Club competed  as part of a group which featured 80 boats.

Fisher Hill and Jayce Martin finished third, which qualifies them for the state competition in the spring.

River Eubanks and Carson Owen were in eighth after the first day, with Jake Lynch and Hunter Insleman in 31st, with Jace Smart and Curtis Kyle in 61st overall.

After the second day of the competition, Hill and Martin claimed the top spot with a total weight of 13.64 pounds, with Eubanks and Owen finishing third, earning them a state berth in the process.

Smart and Kyle finished eighth overall, while Insleman and Lynch finished in 41st overall for the tournament.

The Lone Grove Longhorns were also represented at the competition with Blaine Brown and Jacob Wilimond representing LGHS. 

After the opening day of the competition, the pair from Lone Grove sat in 23rd overall.

The second day proved to be much better as Brown and Wilimond came back to finish in 13th place overall for the competition.
