On May 3rd, high school teams competed at Clinton Lake for a spot in the IBN High School Championship this coming June. The weather cooperated, and so did the fish.

Lemont High School’s Jack Lambert and Tommy Rimbo took 2nd with 9.90 pounds, and Jack had Big Bass for 4.19 pounds.  Aurora Christian grabbed 3rd with 9.03 lbs.
