Youth Corner

MG Lures is sponsoring Dave Saterbak (11-14 age group) from Maple Grove, Minnesota and Jarid Murphy (15-18 age group) from Maple Grove, Minnesota in the 2006 TBF Jr. World Championship at the end of July on Neely Henry.

The event will feature youth anglers from 31 participating TBF states.  The juniors will each be paired with an FLW Tour pro for 1 day of competition on Lake Neely Henry. There will be three anglers to a boat: one junior angler from each age group, plus an FLW Tour pro who will assist the junior anglers, but will not fish.  The two junior anglers will share control of the boat for the day, but will compete in separate age categories. Takeoff will be held at the Gadsden City Launch (200 Lake St.) at 8 a.m., and the weigh-in will begin at 3 p.m. at the same location.
