Fishing For A Championship

KENNEWICK, Wash - Most people don't think of fishing as a competitive sport, but it definitely is. There are state and national tournaments out there. In fact a local student has qualified. Luckily for Garret Mcafee, his love is just a golf cart ride away from his home in canyon lakes. It's this pond where the shy and humble Kamiakin sophomore got his start on the road to becoming this year's Junior Washington State Bass Federation Champion. A feat this fifteen year old sees as just another win. Since the Washington tourney, Garret's summer has been spent practicing at his favorite holes. It was a two and a half pounder that snagged Garret the first place spot, and secured him an all expenses paid trip to Birmingham for the National Bass Federation Championships. But until garret can make his way down to Alabama, he'll stick with asking his fishing buddies how they hook the big ones.
