Sandite Fishing sees success at Grand Lake tournaments

Three Charles Page High School fishing teams spent the weekend at Grand Lake competing in back-to-back tournaments. 

On Saturday morning Reese David and Mack Taylor took 39th place in the Fishing League Worldwide (FLW) Oklahoma Open with a two-pound, three-ounce bass. Braden Millican and Ty Steelman weren't far behind in 45th place with a one-pound, fourteen-ounce catch. 

Sunday was the Quantum NextGen Open and the Taylor-David combo brought in four fish weighing 7.66 pounds for ninth place. MIllican and Steelman caught a pair of bass for 5.12 pounds and nineteenth place. Caden Pennington and John Miller caught a 1.49-pound fish for 48th place. 

The high school fishing teams do not receive funding from the school, are sponsored by private contribution, and coached by volunteer boat captains.
