Brad Deaner and Zach Malinowski win the 2018 High School State Championship at Lake Charlevoix August 18-19

BOYNE CITY-Zach Malinowski and Brad Deaner from Memphis High School bested 63 teams to win the 2018 Michigan B.A.S.S. Nation (MBN) Petoskey Area High School State Championship on Lake Charlevoix held in Boyne City, MI on August 18 and 19.

For the Championship, Brad and Zach, focused on drop offs between 20 and 40 feet and main points on the lake. Malinowski commented, “Day 1 was one of the most nerve-wracking days of my life besides the Day 2.” The team fished an area about the size of a football field that was pretty loaded. They took their time and were able to put five really nice bass in the box using drop shots. On Day 1 they caught their best bag of the season weighing 19.05 lbs which put them in 3rd place, and only slightly over 2 pounds out of the lead. Day 2 proved slightly more difficult, but the team was able to put another five in the live well from the same spot as Day 1. They knew in order to move up they needed to get some bigger bites. With two hours to go, Deaner was able to put a good 3 pound and a solid 5 pound smallmouth in the box to cull out their smallest.

During the State Championship they mainly used KVD Dream shots in a variety of colors but the ticket was Sexy Shad along with brown and purple Strike King Half Shells rigged about a foot off the bottom.

Malinowski, with help from his dad Aaron, started the team this past spring. The team currently consists of 9 anglers. Memphis was well represented at each of the 5 High School tournaments held by MBN this season. Malinowski commented, “Looking back over the tournaments I am thankful for everyone who has supported us, my dad our boat captain, MBN Youth Division, Michigan B.A.S.S. Nation, and especially Bret Straffon our youth director. During this season I met so many new people and realized how strong the bond is between anglers. I am so proud to be a member of one of the best sports in the world.”

On behalf of the entire MBN membership, congratulations to Brad and Zach!

Our High School State Champions will be joined at the 2019 B.A.S.S. High School Championship by the Noah Misner and Alex Stiles from Lowell High School, who brought in an impressive 36.54 lbs two-day total to solidify second place, along with our AOY team of Hayden Scott and Cody McCullough (Saline High School), Jensen Kay and Ryan Moss (Detroit CC) and our 3rd place High School Team Trail team (TBD).

Good luck to all anglers! Tight lines and safe travel!!!!!
