Fourteen teams showed up for the Buckhorn Reservoir High School Team Tournament, hosted by the Clayton High bass club. The open event, consisting of two high school anglers and one adult boat captain, included teams from Clayton, North Johnston, South Johnston, Corinth Holders, and Hunt high schools. A first of its kind for the area, the tournament event allowed these young fishermen a chance to test their bass angling skills against fellow high school competitors while learning valuable lessons and techniques from their adult boat captains. Valuable prizes and trophies were handed out to the top four teams.
Using a combination of lipless crank baits and jigs for their pattern, North Johnston anglers, Tyler Little and Chase Crocker stole the show with a massive weight of 21.30 pounds for their five fish catch. Crocker also landed the lunker for the event with a bass tipping the scales at 7.64 pounds. Little and Crocker were awarded matching first place trophies and each received a rod & reel combo for their finish. Crocker added an additional trophy to his collection for the lunker award.
Clayton anglers, Zach Greene and Mason Medlin, settled into the second position with their overall catch of 13.09 pounds. Greene and Medlin were rewarded for their efforts with matching second place trophies and tackle bags.
Ethan Howard and Chris Chavez, another team from the Clayton High club, filled the third position with their catch of 9.81 pounds earning the two anglers a pair of tackle bags of their own.
Landing in the fourth position with 8.45 pounds was the Clayton High tandem of Cameron Reynolds and Rodney Rowe. Reynolds and Rowe also earned a pair of tackle bags for their finish.

Results from Roanoke Rapids Lake: 3/21/2009
The 2009 team trail has opened up with a new 7 fish record caught by Mike Barnes and Danny Smith of Roanoke Rapids. The duo weighed in an amazing catch of 45.19 pounds, doubling the field. Ricky Todd and Gary McCaroll took second place with 22.73 pounds, Randy Broughman and Foya McLemore took third place with a catch of 22.08 pounds, and Chuck Murray and Randy Groves took fourth with 19.72 pounds.
It was a great day on the water and the fish were biting. Mike and Danny also had the big fish honors with a GIANT 8.14 pounder. The big fish was good enough for $72 and a brand new AllStarRod donated by Ed Collier of Outdoor Accessories Unlimited, 106 West Second Street, Kenly NC 27542 (www.outdooracc.com). Thanks ED!!
Dennis Bradley and his son Tommy, had the second largest fish with a nice 6.01 pounder earning them $48. We had only 11 teams venture to Roanoke Rapids Lake. A little disappointing, but I understand there were several tourneys in the area. Where else can you fish a team trail that pays back 90 percent on the entry fee?? Come out and enjoy the fellowship and fun. Next stop is on the Chowan River on May 23rd. at Shoups Landing.
