UPCOMING EVENT: Bass Fishing League - 2016 - Lake Okeechobee

Subtle tactics for McIntosh

Dawson Lenz and Dalton Anderson celebrate their victory for McIntosh High School.

AUBURN, Ala. (Sept. 10, 2011) - Dalton Anderson and Dawson Lenz from Georgia's McIntosh High School won the High School Southeast Regional tournament held on Lake Harding Saturday. TBF along with FLW Outdoors held the high school tournament in conjunction with the FLW College Fishing Southeast Regional.

McIntosh High School had four bass weighing 5 pounds, 15 ounces to beat Fuquay-Varina High by 1 pound, 15 ounces.

Lenz said the team used a Texas-rigged green pumpkin Senko weightless in the grass as well as aMcIntosh high Texas-rigged 8-inch Lake Fork ribbontail worm with a 3/16-ounce bullet weight to catch their fish Saturday.

"During practice we were flipping with a Speed Worm and today we switched to a Senko to try and draw more subtle bites because the lake," he said. "This cold front that came through this week really put a hurtin' on the fish, so we tried to get as many bites as we could. We knew it was going to be tough so we went ahead and switched to more sublte baits and that worked out pretty well for us."

Lenz described his team's strategy: "We had Dalton throwing the Senko on the bow and I was in the back flipping into grass, so we covered two different zones of water. It seemed to work out for us and we tried to capitalize on every opportunity we had."

Michael Beverley and Michael McDonald took home second place for Fuquay-Varina High.Rounding out the top five teams were:

2nd: North Carolina's Fuquay-Varina High, Michael McDonald and Michael Beverley, four bass, 4-0

3rd: Alabama's Vernon High School, Kophen Sudduth and Dillon Tucker, two bass, 2-14

4th: Mississippi's Houlka Attendance Center, Blake Galloway and Dillon Easley, one bass, 1-0

5th: South Carolina's T.L. Hanna High, Hampton Anderson and Harrison Bramlette, one bass, 0-14

The winning team was determined by the heaviest weight for a maximum of five bass. The winning team from each of five regional championships advances to 2012 High School Fishing National Championship for a chance to win a $10,000 scholarship ($5,000 to each team member).Vernon High School
