The Polk County High School Bass Team continued Saturday the 2023 portion of its schedule with two teams competing in the Palmetto Boat Center High School Tournament Trail event at Lake Murray.

It proved a rough day getting to and on the water for both teams. Banks Barber lost his trolling motor early Saturday morning and the duo of Karsyn and Konner Huskey lost steering in its boat before even setting off.

Both teams battled on. The Huskeys landed one fish weighing 3.21 pounds and finished 60th while Barber hauled in a fish at 1.49 pounds and placed 74th.

The teams will be returning to the water on March 18 at Lake Hartwell.
