A group of 10 young men went on the water of the mighty Colorado River last Sunday and fished for bragging rights during the Mohave Junior Bass Club tournament.

According to Wally Mueller, the group's adult coordinator, there were six boats that were operated by volunteers who took the young anglers out on the water in search of largemouth and smallmouth bass.

The club, which is open to all kids ages 10 to 18, has been operating for just a few months, and is still looking for young men and women to join up with them.

The anglers launched out of Park Moabi, California and fished from 6 a.m. till 1 p.m.

Despite it being a windy day, there were 25 brought in. The total weight of the fish was 45.65 pounds. All the fish were released after they were weighed.

Winning top honors for the tournament was Austen Levandowski, who had a five-fish limit that weighed 10.05 pounds.

Wyatt McCord finished second with four bass that weighed 8.12 pounds.

McCord also won big fish honors with a smallmouth that weighed 3.80 pounds.

Frankie Mueller finished third, with three bass that weighed 6.58 pounds.

Mueller noted that he wanted to personally thank Pete Byers, who came out as a volunteer boat captain.

The local club is affiliated with the Kingman Bass Club and The Bass Federation, an Arizona organization that is part of the FLW professional bass fishing organization.

Mueller said the club's next tournament will be held on Lake Mohave next month.
