NH Team in 9th Place after Day 1 of Bassmaster Junior National Championship
Follow Cole Moulton, age 12, of Enfield
Spending June 17-19 exploring Carroll County 1,000 Acre Recreation Lake during the official practice days of the Bassmaster Junior National Championship seemed to have paid off for the NH team. After Day 1 of the national bass fishing tournament, Enfield's Cole Moulton and teammate Ryder Whitworth are in 9th place out of the 51 teams.
They were the last boat to weigh in, and their catch included 4 fish for a total Day 1 weight of 8 lbs, 1 oz. You can see the leaderboard online here.

Cole and Ryder, along with boat captain/coach Eric Moulton, have one more day to see what they can bring back to weigh in. Day 2 totals (# of fish & total weight) will be added to Day 1 to determine the Junior National Champs. Day 2 Weigh in is scheduled to begin on Wednesday, June 21 at 2:45 PM. You can watch the weigh in live online. See an interview of Cole, Ryder and Eric - check out the archive video of the Juniors: Day 1 weigh in - skip to 1:24:45 to see Team NH.
The team with the best two-day total will split $2,000 in scholarship money. Members of the second-place team will share $1,000 in scholarship funds. Let's hope Cole and Ryder get some big bites on Day 2 and can finish strong in Tennessee!
