TOWER — The Grand Rapids fishing team duo of Kobie Koenig and Alex Keranen showed their skills by capturing first place in the 2019 Student Angler Tournament of Champions.
The young anglers caught 54-pounds, 3-ounces of bass during the two-day tournament which was conducted on Lake Vermilion.
With the win, Keranen and Koenig each received $10,000 in scholarship money to be used for their future education.
To be able to fish in the event, the duo needed to place in the top 10 percent in one of the six qualifying events. During the tournament, each team used their best seven bass of the day for weigh-in.
