Published 3:58 pm Tuesday, June 25, 2019

Last week, Bainbridge BassCats Gabe Dunaway, Hunter Davis, Jackson Conley and Brunson Fain fished the FLW Nationals on Pickwick Lake.

It was a tough week of fishing, but the BassCats represented Bainbridge and Georgia well at the tournament. Dunaway and Davis took 138th place with a four-day total of 9 pounds, 14 ounces.

Northlake Christian High School’s Christopher Capdeboscq and Sam Acosta weighed 9 pounds, 7 ounces (three fish) on the final day to win the High School Fishing National Championship on Pickwick Lake. With a three-day total weight of 35-12, Capdeboscq and Acosta had just a 1-ounce margin over the second-place team of Colin McCullough and Justin Hamlin who tallied 35-11 for Cedar Bluff High School. For the win, each angler won a four-year $40,000 scholarship to Kentucky Christian University.
