Zion Chapel anglers take second and third in high school tournament

Zion Chapel anglers take second and third place at Lay Lake on East Alabama High School Trail

The Zion Chapel Bass Team’s third tournament for this season, sponsored by the East Alabama High School Trail, was Saturday, March 20, at Lay Lake.  This lake is a 12,000-acre reservoir located 35 minutes south of Birmingham off I-65. 

Some of the Zion Chapel Bass Teams departed early on Friday, but two of the anglers who are on the Zion Chapel High School baseball team, played a game Friday night before heading north.  Ethan Young and Avery Padgett were some tired anglers when they finally reached their destination, but after a nap on the way and a short nap at the motel, they hit the water with their teammates on Saturday morning at safe light.

Zeke Gossett, guide and tournament pro, says “Lay Lake in February through March can be some of the best times to fish, but it can also be the trickiest.  Cold front conditions can make things tough, but fish will still bite.”…Full Story
