Eleven members of Queen City's Bass Fishing Team battled to see which team could catch the most fish in a seven hour period. They started fishing at 6:30am and wrapped up the fishing at 1:30pm.

The QC Bass Fishing Team used the basic guidelines of Major League Fishing, where the fish are weighed on portable scales and returned back to the lake from where they were caught. This method helps preserve the fishery and reduces the potential for dead fish during a tournament format. Each angler could bring one fish to the boat ramp that was over 18 inches to weigh in for the Big Bass prize. 

Each boat captain was charged with weighing and recording the weights on a Google sheet that was shared with the boat captains. This allowed each boat and the student anglers to have a live look at the tournament standings throughout the day. 

The team of T.J. Stagner and J. Stagner worked out of Dan Sawyer's Tracker. They fished hard for 7 hours, but were not able to bring any bass into the boat. Jacey Engledowl and Marc Luzio teamed up to fish out of Jason Engledowl's Xpress bass boat. They were able to catch one bass totaling 2.92 lbs. Ryan Ream and Dylan Benson worked out of the Nitro Z9 captained by Mike Benson. These two were able to bring in a pair of bass totaling 4.2 lbs. Aubrie Kiser was fishing in John Sisco's Ranger bass boat, and was  able to land three bass adding up to 7.26 lbs. Barry Watkins captained the duo of Clayton Whittenberg and Logan Oas in his Skeeter. These two were able to boat 11 bass for 20.76 lbs. Rounding out the field was the pair of Carson Dillinger and Rylan Donaldson working out of Mike Dillinger's Skeeter 202. These two paced the field by totaling 12 bass tipping the scales at 26.5 lbs.

The top water bite started early with Rylan Donaldson catching the first fish of the day at 6:35am and it was a 4 pounder!!! The Dillinger/Donaldson team landed 16 lbs of fish in the 1st hour of competition. The Whittenberg/Oas pair would not go quietly into the beautiful January Saturday without making a strong run for the lead. After visiting with a pair of anglers, and gaining some knowledge of what was working for them. Those anglers tossed a handful of flukes to the boys, and said good luck... go get'em. The QC Bass Fishing Teams were fishing against a stacked lake of tournament boats. There were over 100 boats on Welsh Power Plant Lake fishing in a multitude of tournaments on this day. 

Whittenberg and Oas landed three 4 pounders to make a run at the lead. However, Dillinger and Donaldson kept pace with another 4 pounder of their own late in the day to secure the win. Congratulations go out to all 11 of the student anglers who came out to fish on Saturday: Aubrie Kiser took 3rd place, Clayton Whittenberg and Logan Oas came in 2nd place, Carson Dillinger and Rylan Donaldson took 1st place. Logan Oas brought in the biggest bass of the day weighing in at 4.16 lbs.
