Michigan - SAF wins High School Central Conference Championship
CARLYLE, Ill. (Sept. 8, 2012) – The Purdue University team of Nicholas Schuetz of Loogootee, Ind., and Elliott Myers of Anderson, Ind., won the National Guard FLW College Fishing Central Conference Championship on Carlyle Lake Saturday with a five-bass limit that weighed 11 pounds, 6 ounces. Their three day total weight of 37-15 beat rivals Indiana University by a solid 3 pounds, 8 ounces. The team won a Ranger Z117 bass boat with a 90-horsepower Evinrude or Mercury outboard and a berth in the National Guard FLW College Fishing National Championship.
      Indicating that they fished the same area throughout the tournament the team was targeting wood today unlike Thursday and Friday when they were targeting grass. According to Schuetz the cold front that ran through last night kept the bass near the heat of the wood. He also said that being able to make adjustments each day was key to their success.
      “We used three key baits,” Myers, an undeclared sophomore added. “On Thursday we were using Secret Lures Stupid Tubes, Friday we whacked ‘em with Terminator Spinnerbaits and today we were using YoMama baits, it’s beaver type bait.”
            TBF along with FLW held the High School Central Conference Championship on Saturday in conjunction with the FLW College Fishing Central Conference Championship. Eight teams from across the region were represented and Nick Marsh, Commerce Township, Mich., and Kyle Boe, Lake Porion, Mich., from Michigan - SAF, won the tournament which was also held on Carlyle Lake.
       The team beat their closest competitor, Winamac/Decatur Central High School out of Indiana by 2 pounds, 9 ounces. They were the only two teams to catch five bass limits.
              High School Fishing Tournaments are open to all ninth, 10th, 11th, and 12th grade students, including home schooled students, that are members of the Student Angler Federation.
