My name is Maddux Walters and I currently fish for the Creekview Anglers high school team. I’m a junior and 2017 was the first year our school had a team. I’m currently fishing in my second season.
We bought our first bass boat in September of 2016 and I’ve been on the lake as many days as I could since then.
Our high school competes in the Georgia High School Fishing (GHSF) trail out of Lake Lanier.
I also compete in the Georgia BASS Nation tournament trail with the North Georgia Anglers.
I finished in 15th place out of 120+ boats in my first season and qualified for the GHSF Classic at Chickamauga Lake where I placed 5th.
I’ve also fished in Georgia BASS Nation and TBF/SAF tournaments across the state. My best place last year was 3rd at the GICAA North Regional Qualifier at Lake Lanier on March 4, 2017. My biggest bag so far this year was 15.02 pounds on June 3rd at the GHSF Classic on Chickamauga.
Outside of high school tournaments, I co-angled in my first ever BFL Bulldog Division tournament this year and placed 37th out of 154 boats.
My goals are to earn a scholarship to fish in college, earn my college degree, become a professional bass angler, and work in the fishing industry.

Nice start to the 2017-18 season with a 6th place finish at Lake Sinclair. I had never fished this lake until a few days of practice in the weeks leading in to this tournament. We found some cover in a few areas during practice and caught four fish there on tournament day. We then finished …
I learned a lot at my first World High School Fishing finals in Florence, Alabama. From practice throughout the tournament, we were able to catch fish here and there on the ledges, but never enough big fish consistently. Rather than go shallow and fish other patterns we were more familiar with, we stuck with the …
