Size, strength and speed…important attributes for most high school athletes; unless, of course, the sport is fishing.

06— You don’t have to be the biggest kid or tallest kid or the most athletic kid to be a bass fisherman. It’s all about your knowledge.

Colt Anderson is half of a competitive high school fishing duo; Jonathan Gray is his teammate.

09— It’s kind of like playing golf a little bit to where you have different tools and you have to adapt to the conditions. You can never become perfect at fishing, and that’s a cool thing because you can always improve.

Another factor that makes competitive high school fishing a great sport is young women can also participate – like Marinna Collins and Mia Sartor – the only female team at a recent tournament at Lake LBJ.

10—It’s hard being the only girl team out there. We’re going to represent. This is my first year, so I am a little scared, but, you
just have to relax. Chill. Just go with it.

View a segment about competitive high school fishing teams the week of November 30 on the TPW PBS TV series. Check your local listings.

14—Ooh. I think that’s the furthest I’ve cast yet. [giggles] That felt good. It’s really cool being in this club because you get to
meet a lot of different people. And, we’re all like one big family – and that’s really good to have friends you can be really close
