August tenth found the Shoals Youth Bassmasters launching into First Creek on Wheeler Lake. Fifty-eight young angler members and boat captains readied for the 7 AM start.
The fishermen got the shade benefit of an overcast sky until 10 AM. The hot sun pounded the kids for an hour until the 11 AM weigh-in. A three-fish limit was in force to help reduce any heat-related bass fatalities.
