The team of Mikey and Braden had high hopes going into the 2019 Jr National Tournament having both fished in National Tournaments in the past. The duo put that experience to good use putting together two solid days of fishing to claim the Bassmaster Jr National Championship held in Huntingdon, Tennessee on August 6 – August 7, 2019! The field included 62 teams from all over the country qualifying for this event at the State level. What an accomplishment for these two! Way to go boys!
The pair was sitting in 2nd place after the first day of competition. The Boys were in the 1st flight for day two and weighed in early having to spend a long nerve-wracking time on the hot-seat before the final team weighed in.
