Blake Allen, both Gold-Burg students fishing for the club, Captain Weldon Duff; Ian Ashley and Hunter Pullen, Captain Ross Hodges; and the newest team, Christian Sanchez and Carson Morris, Captain Trace Morris.

This year Bowie’s team will be fishing in the north division opening on Lake Ray Roberts at the marina. Teams then travel to Lake Lewisville on Oct. 28; Lake Texoma on Dec. 2; Lake Ray Hubbard on Feb. 10; and Ray Roberts on March 10.

Regionals will be on Lake Lewisville on April 14 with the Texas High School Bass Association state championship May 19-20 on Lake Sam Rayburn.
