Teen Anglers reeled ’em in at Okee-Tantie

OKEECHOBEE — The Big O Teen Anglers held its July tournament out of Okee-Tantie. This month’s tournament included 14 anglers catching a total of 23 bass at a combined weight of 40.97 lbs. The catch was much better than last month’s.

The largest bass caught was 4.06 lbs. and was caught by Alex Figueroa of the 15-19 age group. Great catch, Alex!

The next tournament will be held on Aug. 31, out of Okee-Tantie with a weigh-in at 1 p.m. Let’s all hope for some better weather and a better bite!

Every month there are boat captains that volunteer their Saturday morning to the youth anglers, therefore thanks should be extended to the following: Buster McMillan, Jim Newell, Herman Parker, John Sales, Brian Casey, Terry Seabolt and Billy Ellerbee. And special thanks to the Mellette family for providing the after-tournament refreshments!
