De Soto High anglers win Kansas state championship

De Soto bass anglers win Kansas high school state fishing championship

A recent De Soto High School graduate secured his second state bass fishing championship in three years last Sunday at Bone Creek Reservoir.

Dylan Nimrod — who earned his first championship fishing alongside older brother Connor in 2018 at Milford Reservoir — this time was the more experienced angler on the boat, teaming with senior Collin Stephens to post a two-day bag of 16.74 pounds for the runaway victory and a berth in the 2020 Bassmaster High School Series National Championship next month on Kentucky Lake in Paris, Tenn.

“It means a lot to me that I am a two-time state champion,” Dylan Nimrod said. “To my knowledge, it’s never happened in the Kansas BASS Nation, so it’s an honor. Not only that, but to have my first one come with my older brother and my second to come with one of my best friends is really something special.

“A lot of people just get ‘stuck’ with partners in fishing, but I got to fish with people I really enjoy being around all four years of my high school career.”…Full Story
