Red River HS Bass Club finishes first at Lewisville

The tournament at Lake Lewisville on Nov. 13 turned out to be a great day for the Red River High School Bass Club in the west division as the team finished first overall.
The day started out at 37 degrees and thankfully warmed up as the sun rose in the sky. Nine teams from RRHSBC competed with their volunteer boat captains to fish a challenging public and pressured lake.
It took 35.69 pounds to win it to take high point club/school. They take the top 3 teams to compile pounds of fish to get the final tally and the club won it by two and half pounds.
Only half the field of anglers caught and weighed fish.
