Twenty-four youth teams converged on the Chowan River near Ahoskie, NC for the first Youth Educational Series event of 2017.  Met with cool, post-frontal conditions, the teams had to dig deep into their bags of tricks to entice bites throughout the day.

Chase Andrews and Tanner Beaman topped the field with the only five fish limit of the event weighing in at 13.01 lbs that was anchored by a nice 4.24 lb largemouth.  Andrews and Beaman used a white spinnerbait and green pumpkin jigs around cypress trees located in the Chowan to secure their victory.  The duo had only eight bites throughout the day, but those bites proved to be the right ones.  For their win, each angler received matching plaques signifying their win, a combination prize package of a Plano storage box containing a spinnerbait, lipless crankbait and pack of bullet weights (Provided in part by Outdoor Accessories Unlimited), a ZMan Fishing Lures pack of Elaztech product and a package of hooks from Penetration Hooks.

If you could only catch one fish the entire day, Harris Canaday found the right one to catch, as he landed the single largest fish of the event weighing in at 5.12lbs.
