CARBONDALE, Mo. – Wisconsin state champions Kyler Chelminiak and Nicholas Peterson of Whitnall High School won the High School Central Regional tournament held on Kinkaid Lake Saturday. The Whitnall High School team recorded three bass weighing 9 pounds, 9 ounces to beat the Indiana state championship team by 5 pounds, 12 ounces.

Chelminiak said the team used Mann’s Flippin’ Craw to catch their fish Saturday.

“I used one bait and one rod, actually it was a flipping rod, to catch all my fish,” Chelminiak said. “It was slow all day long. We only got one bite every two hours.”

“We were flipping in heavy milfoil all day, Peterson added. “We were just lucky to get the big bites that we got.”

Best of the rest

The top-five team finalists at the FLW High School Fishing Central Regional Championship on Kinkaid Lake acknowledge the crowd. Rounding out the top five team finalists:
