FISHER DAVIS CROWNED 2016 JUNIOR WORLD CHAMPION
Lake Guntersville was tough this week on the 37 junior anglers that advanced through their states to get a chance at the title. But, Fisher Davis, from Mount Ida, Ark., put together the winning limit on the final day of the 2016 Junior World Championship in Scottsboro, Ala.
Fisher had a solid day yesterday, and kept his pattern going today to catch a limit of bass weighing 12 pounds 15 ounces. A slight cloud cover and light rain helped flipped the switch from yesterday’s intense heat.
Anglers in boats one and two had hit them good the day before, so by yesterday’s totals Fisher was seemingly in the middle of the pack. “I was worried; I was real worried. But, I didn’t change a thing,” Fisher said. “I hit some spots, but I hit them yesterday. I think it was more just consistency.”
Fisher caught most of his fish using a junebug colored, Texas rig type style. He only had sixbites today, culling one and bringing the rest down the final stretch. When an angler can go six for six he certainly deserves to be crowned Junior World Champion.
