Ethan Lilljedahl landed the big bass at 7.34 pounds and had five keepers weighing a total of 15.8 pounds to win the championship tournament in the Central Texas High School Tournament Trail Saturday.

Lilljedahl, a recent Jonesboro High School graduate, said he landed the fish an hour and a half into his day on Lake Buchanan.

Teammate Jeffery Morse took second in the event.

Lilljedahl said his big bass was the largest he’s ever caught in two years of fishing on the Jonesboro High School team. Wayne Lilljedahl, his grandfather, was the boat captain.
