Brother and sister Carter and Lee Rose Koza, of Marietta, won two different high school bass tournaments on Lake Seminole in February. The first tournament was Feb. 9 at the FLW High School Open, where they competed with 41 other boats and weighed in 23-lbs., 2-ozs. for the victory.
“The fish were definitely in prespawn mode,” said Carter, who was also featured in the February 2019 issue of GON in the Map-of-the-Month article on Lake Allatoona.
“The fish were staged in a ditch that ran along a bank, and they were feeding up before they went in to spawn in a pocket. We caught all of the fish on a green-pumpkin ChatterBait with a Suicide Shad for the trailer fished on St. Croix Legend Glass prototype rods.”
Carter, 16, is in the tenth grade, and his sister Lee Rose is 18 and a senior. Both anglers attend and were representing Mount Paran Christian School in Kennesaw.
