Griffin Fernandes holds his 7.72 pound bass he caught on April 20th out of Geist Reservoir, winning him the first Indiana Bass Federation Youth Tournament.

When 13-year-old Griffin Fernandes headed out on Geist Reservoir last month for the Indiana Bass Federation Youth Tournament, he had no idea he would be reeling in some big awards!

Griffin – a 7th grader at Hamilton Southeastern Junior High – won the first Indiana Bass Federation Youth Tournament in his age division held on Geist, April 20. He broke a youth record with five qualifying fish weighing in at 23.43 pounds. Then, his big bass weighed in at hefty 7.72 pounds!

“It was exciting!” says Griffin. “When they announced the weight of the fish, I thought I did well but couldn’t believe I won!

The young fisherman has been fishing since he was 3 years old and usually packs a few poles and a variety of lures when he heads out on the water.

Griffin was one of about 40 boys from Fishers and around the state who participated in the tournament. It was a great day on Geist and they want to thank all their volunteer boat captains, as well!

Griffin is now fired up for future fishing events and plans to be at Lake Shafer in June, Lake Tippecanoe in July, and the big “Fish-Off” in September.

Congratulations, Griffin!
