The Monadnock Regional High bass fishing team took second place at the NHIAA state qualifier on Lake Winnipesaukee Thursday, more than good enough to qualify for the angling state championship. The Huskies’ tandem of Matthew Roberts and Joshua Roy combined to reel in eight fish with a combined weight of 15.87 pounds, led by a 5.08-pound largemouth hauled in by Roberts. Prospect Mountain finished first with eight fish at 16.12 pounds.
“We had a little bit of a rough start. The bite wasn’t as good as we thought it was going to be,” Monadnock Coach Joey Parrott said. “The bite was very sporadic — we’d go to a spot, catch a couple, go to another spot, catch a couple, and then we made the big decision to go fish by some vegetation, and that’s when we got the big one, the 5.08 one.” Keene, which won back-to-back state championships in 2015 and 2016 and was runner-up last year, failed to qualify.
