12-week Long Event Shows Impressive Early Engagement
This past Sunday, April 12 brought the completion of the first round of the 12-week High School Fishing Digital Tournament from Lew’s and Strike King.
Announced March 24, the series, using the Hook’D Fishing Tournaments app, high school fishing teams from around the country can compete against other teams in their region for weekly big bass prizes as well as accumulating inches with each submitted catch to count toward the grand prize at the end of the 12-week period.
Each week, teams are eligible to win prizes from Lew’s and Strike King. The round one big bass winners from each of the South, North and West regions will each receive a Lew’s Mach Smash Combo for their high school fishing team.
Round one saw a total of 13,281 inches of bass submitted with a total of 842 bass caught.
The following are the round one big bass prize winners for each region:
South: Spring Valley High School – 22”
North: Providence Catholic Bass Team – 21.75”
West: Delta High School – 22.25”
Weekly big bass winners for each region win a Mach Combo for their team (specific model changes by the week). Grand prize winners for each region (most cumulative inches submitted over full 12-week period) will win two Mach Combos and $200 worth of SK product.
With essentially all fishing tournaments and team sports being cancelled for spring 2020, the team at Lew’s and Strike King is excited to offer an avenue for high school anglers to stay active, engaged and get on the water this spring.
It is highly encouraged and recommended that all anglers practice safe social distancing while fishing and follow all local laws and health guidelines while on the water.
