GAINESVILLE, Ga. (Sept. 30, 2015) – The East Hall High School duo of Tristan Thomas and Dakota Crumley from Gainesville, Georgia, brought a five-bass limit to the scale Saturday weighing 12 pounds, 3 ounces, to win the 2015 TBF/FLW High School Fishing Southeastern Conference Championship tournament on Lake Lanier in Gainesville, Georgia. The win earned the team the title of Southeastern Conference champions and advanced the team to the 2016 High School Fishing National championship, held next spring at a location yet to be announced in conjunction with the TBF National Championship and a Walmart FLW Tour event.
A field of 51 teams from eight states qualified to compete in this conference championship. The winning East Hall High duo said that they concentrated on fishing blowdowns for the majority of the day with a shaky-head rig with a green-pumpkin Reaction Innovations Flirt Worm to catch the majority of their fish. Fifteen of the 45 teams that entered brought five-bass limits to the scale.
