Local Teen Anglers Finish First In Escambia River Tournament

March 12, 2018

Panhandle Youth Anglers held their first tournament of the season recently on the Escambia River from the Swamp Shouse.

The first place team was Jacob Bryant of Cantonment and Nick Venable of Molino, both students at West Florida High School.  They won with an overall weight of 7.29 pounds. Jacob also reeled in the biggest fish at 6.26 pounds.

The purpose of Panhandle Youth Anglers is to promote and encourage youth fishing and stimulate youth awareness of bass fishing as a major competitive sport in our community. Young Anglers are eligible to compete in high school series bass tournaments at the state and national level, which can provide scholarship opportunities.
