The annual Illinois High School Bass Fishing Tournament Series will hold its sectional tournaments statewide April 20.

The finals will be held on Carlyle Lake, May 4-5.

Here is a breakdown by the numbers:

19 – number of sectionals to be held at 18 locations. Chain O’ Lakes in northeast Illinois will host two sectionals.

231 – the number of schools that will participate.

2 – Each school is allowed two teams.

4 – Each team may have up to four anglers.

1,848 – the potential number of youth that could compete this spring.

Illinois Department of Natural Resources fisheries biologist Dan Stephenson says regional tournaments may be needed in the future if participation grows.

Stephenson is the DNR coordinator for the tournament.

“We see great potential for getting more and more schools and students involved,” he said.

Sectional assignments are here at the Illinois High School Association web site: http://www.ihsa.org/SportsActivities/BassFishing/StateSeriesInformationResults.aspx?url=/data/bsf/1assign.htm.
