2022 East Qualifier #1 Final Thoughts

October 30th, 2021

Dorion’s Landing, Morgan City, Louisiana

Early last Thursday morning after a strong line of storms rolled past south Louisiana, the north wind started to howl and never let up for the next two days.

Cooler temps and high pressure set in which normally spells trouble for fishermen of this state. For most of the near 200 youth fishing teams participating in the Louisiana Youth B.A.S.S. Nation Eastern qualifier presented by Spillway Sportsman, out of Doiron’s Landing in Morgan City were met with extremely tough fishing, Friday on official practice day.

The Denham Springs High team of Devan Pekins and Ty Ross didn’t let tough conditions hamper their ability to go out and absolutely smash the largemouth to take the top spot and big bass!

They were all in on an area that they found in practice that was a long, cold boat ride to get to. Added to their challenge was lower water levels that made getting in their spot even more of a challenge and they were only able to make the first cast at around 9:00 am.

Things started slow so they moved from spot to spot trying to put something together. They finally put a pattern together focusing on areas with moving water driven by the ever-present north wind.

Their first fish went in the live well at 10:00am and it was definitely the size they were looking for, so the quality made the lack of bites worth it. During the day they only caught around 10 fish but managed to put together an 18.48 pound bag with a beautiful 5.28 pound Spillway largemouth which was good enough for the big bass of the tournament. The pair bested the field by over 2-1/2 pounds.

Kade Palmer and Evan Burris from Walker High School brought in a five fish limit just missing the sixteen-pound mark going 15.99 lbs. They also had a very nice 4.43-pound kicker that helped their effort.

The West St. John team of Shamar Pierre and Devrin Harper put in another good showing to place third by catching a 5 fish limits for 15.23 pounds and had a 4.64-pound big bass to top off their bag.

Chance Shelby of Live Oak High School fished solo for this tournament but that didn’t hamper him from taking care of business by taking another top five finish placing 4th, with 14.27 pounds and a 4.36 pound kicker.

In fifth, current Bassmaster High School Combine Champion, Levi Thibodaux with partner Jace Andras from Lafourche Bassmasters managed a respectable five fish limit coming in at 13.42 lbs.

The Junior Bassmaster team of Nathan Chiasson and Evan Breaux, fresh off a trip the Junior Bassmaster National Championship took the top spot amongst the 30 Junior Bassmaster teams competing in the event.

They began their day getting to visit with high schooler Levi Thibodaux as they waited for their turn to blast off. Levi is a fellow Lafourche Bassmaster teammate and a guy that they look up to.

Their captain Scott Gilmore passed on some words of wisdom from none other than Ricky Bobby by quoting his line from the movie “If you ain’t first, you’re last” which they all had a good laugh but also must have taken to heart.

Both boys responded with “well, lets go win this”! And they did just that!

After a cold ride to their first spot, they got warmed up almost immediately as Nathan put the first keeper of the day in the boat which was a very nice fish.

The duo was pumped up and did an overaggressive high five which wasn’t such a great idea after the cold ride and freezing hands that had both jumping around with stinging hands.

They got their blood pumping again until they realized the next monster fish that they thought was a good bass, turned out to be a drum. That was quickly followed by a stressful 30 minute delay as the trolling failed and Captain Scott sprang into action as the pit crew to finally get it going again and save the day.

The pair continued their spinnerbait and frog pattern until the water in their first spot had dropped to a level that their bite ran out. Only having three fish, around noon they decided they had to make a move and it paid off as immediately as the duo filled their limit with Evan putting number five in the boat which was their best fish of the day, a 3.87 pound largemouth. The pair managed a five fish limit of Spillway bass for 12.20 pounds, and good enough to take 1st.

They finally found the fish that they needed and managed to cull out three times upgrading with really nice bass. Evan and Nathan had a never give up mentality for the day which led to the ability to cull up as they fished hard and made their captain proud.

Captain Scott continues to be impressed with these young men’s preparation and dedication to the sport that they love and had a blast on the water watching them put in the work they needed to get the job done.

Not far behind Evan and Nathan was the Junior Southwest Bassmasters of Denham Springs team of Adalyn Parr and Luke Clark. This duo paired up for the 2022 season and have had a good showing through the first three qualifiers.

They finished 2nd overall bringing in a five fish limit for 10.97 pounds anchored by a 3.78 lbs. impressive largemouth.

In third place was the Central Catholic Jr Bassmaster team of Landyn Ramagos and Landon Billiot. This duo always manages to put in a good showing in tournaments that they fish, and Saturday was no different as they went to work putting five bass in the livewell going 10.30 pounds also anchored by a nice 3.75 pound largemouth.

In fourth was the Jr Southwest Jr BM team of Denver LeBlanc and Jackson Gomez with 8.08 pounds.

Rounding out the top five in the Junior division was the Port Barre Jr team of Bennett Fonenot and Sophie Lormand who finished with a five fish limit and was anchored by the “Big Bass” of the Junior division, coming in at 4.73 pounds.

Despite cool conditions and high pressure all these young anglers never let that bother them. 527 bass were caught on the day and 526 were released to resupply the resource.

The total weight for those fish was 946.43 pounds, a 1.80-pound average! There were 64 five fish limits caught and 149 junior and high school teams managed to catch at least one fish on the day.

The amazing thing about this sport are the smiles on these young anglers faces after a day of competing in the sport. The friendships and fellowshipping that this sport brings is second to none.

Congratulation to all the teams who braved cool temps and less than good conditions to compete in the sport that they love.

All that and these hungry anglers were able to end their day with a hamburger and chips supplied by Sweetwater Carwash in Port Allen who continues to support the youth anglers of Louisiana.
