Fishing team takes first place

WIN TOURNAMENT–The Red Bud Bass Fishing team of Gavin Christiansen and Briar Langley took both first place and the big bass award at the fishing tournament held June 30 at Crab Orchard Lake.

The Red Bud Musketeer and Royal Bass Fishing Team attended their second tournament of the season on June 30 at Crab Orchard Lake.

It was a hot day and there was a smaller turnout for the tournament, but the weather didn’t stop the young anglers from participating.

Teams fished right up until the weigh in time at 1 p.m. Several large fish were produced for the weigh in with three over five pounds and two over six pounds.

Coming in first place was the Red Bud team of Gavin Christiansen and Briar Langley, who fished out of Coach George Fudge’s boat.
