The North Central Louisiana Student Angler Federation is gearing up for Year Two pitting high school bass anglers against each other in some good old fashioned bass fishing competition between individuals and their schools.
Most people don’t realize it, but high school bass fishing was ahead of its time back in the late 1970’s when it was first started on Lake D’Arbonne. After a long time out, high school bass fisherman are once again blessed with an organized way to compete against their peers in bass tournaments.
The area federation will be holding it’s first event on Caney lake on January 27th. The scheduled includes stops at Poverty Point on Feb. 10, D’Arbonne March 10 and the Cross Lake State Championship on March 24. For more information and details, check out the group’s FACEBOOK page and you can message them there if you have any questions.
One of the federation’s organizers and supporters, Justin Paul Bailey, tells us they are expecting between 80 and 100 teams at most events this year. That’s awesome!
For the Caney Tournament, a Pre-meeting will be Jan. 22 at University Hall, 100 Keeney Circle, Ruston, La.
