EAST HARTFORD, Conn. — Brian Fickett and Lucas Kamoen won the Connecticut B.A.S.S. Nation’s annual CastingKids Finals, April 5, at Cabela’s.

Twelve finalists competed in the contest, which requires young anglers to be able to flip, pitch and cast to a target.

Fickett won in the older age group (11 to 14 years old), and Kamoen won in the younger division (ages 7 to 10). Fickett and Kamoen each earned $250 from the Connecticut B.A.S.S. Nation Juniors.

Each of the 12 finalists received a rod, reel, tackle bag and bandana from Cabela’s, as well as a Bryan Kerchal whistle, playing cards and tags from the Connecticut B.A.S.S. Nation.

“Thank you to Cabela’s for allowing us to hold the event there and for everything they gave the finalists,” said Sylvia Morris, president of Connecticut B.A.S.S. Nation.

Morris also thanked the Connecticut B.A.S.S. Nation Juniors for all their help in running the event, as well as volunteers Bob Nelson, Rich Russell, Connecticut B.A.S.S. Nation high school director Ron Frisk and Connecticut B.A.S.S. Nation youth director Terry Baksay.
