Wagoner High anglers win NextGen Fishing Tournament

Oklahoma Anglers Reel In The Victory At Quantum NextGen Fishing Tournament

GROVE, Okla. – 

High school and college anglers were tested on the water Sunday during the Quantum NextGen Open at Grand Lake.

About 70 teams from Oklahoma and several other states competed in the bass fishing tournament. A majority of the anglers said the fish shut off in the afternoon.

“I’ve done it my whole life. It’s addicting,” said Bluejacket High School senior Shelbie Baker. “We started off OK in the cooler weather, once it got hotter the fish just stopped biting.”

RSU’s Tanner Bracken and Tyler Dunlap won the college division with nearly a nearly 12 pound bag. Garrett Barton and Braeden Langford from Wagoner High School won the high school division. They caught their 5 bag limit for more than 19 pounds. They also landed the biggest bass of the day.

“Giant Bass, come on throw that big one in there,” tournament director Joe Davis said on the stage. That’s one’s gonna come in at 5.89. That’s the new big bass for high school too.”…Full Story and Video
