Student-anglers in Marble Falls fishing club place 1st, 2nd and 3rd at Lake LBJ tourney

HORSESHOE BAY — Marble Falls High School student Lyle Schmidt caught three fish totaling more than nine pounds to win the latest high school fishing tournament hosted by the school’s club on Jan. 19 at Lake LBJ.

“They were all in about 20 to 30 feet off of a rock wall, and I used a drop shot with a zoom,” Schmidt said about how he caught the fish. “It was a tiny fluke.”

RESULTS: 1, Lyle Schmidt, 9 pounds 3 ounces, including the Big Bass weighing 4 pounds 10 ounces; 2, Austin Ellis, 6 pounds 6 ounces; 3, Ty Wynn, 5 pounds 15 ounces

UP NEXT: Winter Open on Lake LBJ, 6:30 a.m. Feb. 16 at Bluebriar Boat Ramp in Granite Shoals
