In the sixth position was the tandem of Travis Mewborn and Levi Jones with their total for the event of 1.69 lbs earning the anglers prizes from Z Man Fishing Products and Penetration Hooks.  However, this sixth place final result does not show the true catch that these two anglers experienced.  Mewborn and Jones actually netted a total of 6.69 lbs of Falls Lake largemouth, but suffered a five pound late penalty due to a late day mechanical issue that kept the team from arriving back on time for the weigh-in.

20150627_131851

Tyler Goss and Clay Shaw’s catch of 1.62 lbs earned the pair the seventh place position and prizes from Z Man Fishing Products and Penetration Hooks.

The team of Wyatt Long and Travis Beck, and lone angler Luke Farley were unable to bring a Falls Lake largemouth to the scales, but were still able to walk away with some great prizes from Z Man Fishing Products and Penetration Hooks.

Thanks to our great series sponsors, additional prizes from Z Man Fishing Products, Penetration Hooks, Gamma Fishing Products, Solar Bat, and Ranger Boats were provided throughout the weigh-in period as door prizes.

Due to the support of our dedicated Youth Educational Series sponsors, the series is able to reward these up-and-coming tournament anglers with nearly $700 in product rewards and trophies at each event, plus provide food items for the anglers and their boat captains during the weigh-in period. Thanks to our Youth Educational Series sponsors for your support in making this series possible for these young anglers.

Special Guest

20150627_133346

We were very fortunate to have special guest Jaylen and members of his family with us at the event location.  Throughout the day we watched as the Jaylen and his family fished from the shoreline near our weigh-in setup.  Although the size of fish they caught were not giant, the size of the smiles found on Jaylen’s face could not be compared to any weight or length.

DSCN172420150627_130911

As our Youth Educational Series anglers returned from their day on the water Jaylen was on hand for the weigh-in and got to be part of the action. We wish you the best Jaylen and hope to see you catch some big ones in the future!!

Little & Crocker Win Pembroke Creek Y.E.S. Event

Edenton, NC – May 16th, 2015

After a second and a third place finish in earlier season events, Tyler Little and Chase Crocker get to finally raise the first place trophies during the third event of the Collins Inc. – Youth Educational Series.

Launching shortly after 6:00 am from the Bayside Marina & Grill located in Edenton, NC, the youth teams made their way to their first fishing locations somewhere along the miles of shoreline located on the Albemarle Sound and Chowan River region.  For many teams, this was their first look at this Eastern NC body of water.  Nonetheless, using what they know from fishing their home waters, these young anglers were able to adjust to the given conditions and utilize their angling skills to catch several of the largemouth bass located among these waters.

20150516_13353320150516_131359

Tyler Little and Chase Crocker were fortunate enough to put together a solid five fish limit that weighed 9.33 lbs granting the duo their first win of the season.  After the loss of a four-plus pound fish late in the day, the team thought their chances might have been over, but with other teams unable to complete a five fish limit, Little and Crocker were able to hold on to the top spot which earned the two anglers trophy prizes and product awards from The Trophy Connection, Z Man Fishing Products, Outdoor Accessories Unlimited, and Penetration Hooks.

20150516_13363520150516_130925

Wyatt Long and Travis Beck, showing another day of consistency, finished in the second position with their four fish weighing in at 8.58 lbs that earned the two anglers trophy prizes and product awards from The Trophy Connection, Z Man Fishing Products, Outdoor Accessories Unlimited, and Penetration Hooks.

20150516_131122

In the third position was the team of Alden Patterson and Logan Jennings with their catch of 6.39 lbs for the day. The anglers were each rewarded for their efforts with awards from Z Man Fishing Products, Outdoor Accessories Unlimited, and Penetration Hooks.

In the fourth spot was the duo of Chris Chavez and Ethan Howard.  The fifth spot belonged to Adam Pendergrass, while the sixth position went to the tandem of Taner Rodgers and Jared Haynes. Each of these teams were rewarded for their efforts with awards from Z Man Fishing Products, Outdoor Accessories Unlimited, and Penetration Hooks.

20150516_13373720150516_130719

Adam Pendergrass was the recipient of the lunker award, presented by NC Farm Bureau agent Red Ligon, for his largemouth bass weighing 3.82 lbs.

20150516_133958

Anglers in attendance during the weigh-in session received additional door prizes from event sponsors Z Man Fishing Products, Outdoor Accessories Unlimited, Solar Bat, Penetration Hooks and Gamma Fishing Line.  A special thanks goes out to Jim Hale with the Bayside Marina and Grill for his generous donation of a rod and reel combo provided to one lucky winner during the afternoon weigh-in and door prize drawings.

20150516_131750

Thanks to the support of our dedicated Youth Educational Series sponsors, the series is able to reward these up-and-coming tournament anglers with nearly $700 in product rewards and trophies at each event, plus provide food items for the anglers and their boat captains during the weigh-in period.  Thanks to our Youth Educational Series sponsors for your support in making this series possible for these young anglers.

The battle to become the first Collins Inc. – Youth Educational Series team champions is heating up, as we now have a tie for the top spot in yearly points accumulation with the team of Alden Patterson and Logan Jennings deadlocked with the team of Tyler Little and Chase Crocker.  However, Wyatt Long and Travis Beck are only two points back, in the third spot while Chris Chavez and Ethan Howard hold the fourth position, only five points out of first.  It appears this championship battle will be a good one with three events now remaining.

Off-Limits: Explanation & Spirit Of Intent

A common question that is raised among our trail is “Why do we have an off-limits period?” The off-limits period is simply in place as an attempt to create events that better level the playing field and increase fairness among all competitors, whether this equalization is physical or mental. Our series is supported largely by the “Weekend Angler”, individuals that cannot take a large amount of time away from work and family to pre-fish for a localized tournament event. Therefore, with the best intentions for all anglers involved, we have such an off-limits period in place. We understand that this off-limits period may adversely affect anglers that live on or very near certain bodies of water that we visit, but we hope that everyone understands that this off-limits period is only a four day time frame that leads up to each scheduled event and is only in place to create fairness and increase opportunities for all of our loyal anglers.

In regards to this off limits period at very large bodies of water, such as the Albemarle Sound region, and knowing that long runs to fishing locations are not uncommon, the safest and easiest explanation to what areas are off limits is to label the off-limits area as the “Albemarle Sound and all of its connecting tributaries”, much the same as our North Carolina Wildlife rules dictate that only 14” length fish are legal among these same location guidelines.

Reference: http://www.ncwildlife.org/Portals/0/Regs/Documents/2014-15/Warmwater_Game_Fish.pdf

We hope that this helps with any questions or concerns regarding the off-limits period preceding our tournament events and hope that everyone will understand the intent of such.
