Oak Lawn wins its own tourney
Lemont High School fisherman Chris Walter caught a 3.10 pound largemouth bass to capture the Big Bass of the Oak Lawn Community High School Spartan Bass Tournament on Oct. 2 on the Kankakee/Des Plaines River at the Des Plaines Conservation Area.
“When I hooked up with my first fish I knew it was a chunk,” Walter said. “I didn’t think it had the size to be a three pounder but I knew it’d be close. When they announced that my fish won big bass I was ecstatic. I’ve come close before but never won the title of big bass, so that was an awesome feeling!”
Oak Lawn alumni (’03) and Unique Bassmaster member Scott Orban guided the Oak Lawn team to victory with a weight of 6.77lbs. Spartan anglers Kallenborn/Hentgen/Patiño/Frega each caught keeper bass.
