The 2024 LA TBF Junior State Championship was held Sunday, January 27th on Toledo Bend with 61 Junior teams attending. Taking to the water in the early am hours, they faced a 7mph northwest wind and very cool temps in the 40’s.
The MLF Bass Pro tour’s first 2024 stop just happened to fall on the heels of our LA High School and Junior State Championship right here on Toledo Bend. On behalf of the Bass Federation and our TBF Junior anglers we want to extend a huge shout out to the more than a dozen MLF pros who came out and visited with the High School and Junior anglers this weekend.
The Sabine River had been on the rise and created the need for anglers to adjust locations and methods seeking out the Lunkers of Toledo.
The Calvary Baptist Academy team of Brooks Beaty and Caleb Coburn not only won the LA TBF Junior State, but with a 17-pound 1-ounce bag they also had the largest 5 live fish limit for the entire weekend. The Junior team bested the Junior field as well as the entire previous day’s High School tournament.
Taking second place was Jayden Meadows and Peyton Bailey from Northeast LA Junior team, they weighed in a five fish limit at 14 pounds and 10 ounces.
And the third-place team was Calvary Baptist Academy team of Tallen Toups and Drew Morgan with a limit of five Bass at 12 pounds and 11 ounces.
Our big fish for the day was good for a reel this weekend and went to team Brooks Beaty and Caleb Coburn, congrats on the 5-pound 4-ounce lunker.
With 61 teams, we advanced the top 6 teams to the 2024 Junior World Championship this July. For full results and more photos of this event CLICK HERE
