Illinois High School Bass Fishing starts on April 23rd

The Illinois High School bass fishing tournaments will begin on April 23rd.  I help coach the Pinckneyville High School team, and just as last year, we will compete in our sectional tournament at Coffeen Lake near Greenville, IL.  The top three teams from each sectional advance to the state tournament in May.  Schools are allowed to enter two 2-man teams.  Each team works on acquiring a collective 5-fish limit.  We were very fortunate in 2009 to win the Cofeen Sectional and advance to the state tournament.  Our teams placed 1st and 6th respectively.  We are returning three of our four starting anglers from last year's squad, which should not only provide us with two good teams, but also allows us to have two teams with prior tournament experience, that's a huge bonus.  Both of our teams practiced this weekend, I'll post a little info on how that went later.
God Bless,
