Day one of the 2012 State Championship was greeted with near perfect weather conditions. The strong winds, the anglers experienced during the official prefish days had subsided leaving partly cloudy skies. Albert Collins of the Nacogdoches Bass Club is leading the individual results with 20.55 lbs. The West Region Team is leading in the club team results with 83.95 lbs.
2012 State Championship – Day 1 Results
My name is Cecil Carter and I’m the Panhandle Regional Director for the Texas B.A.S.S Federation. I’ve been a resident of the panhandle my entire life, attending Amarillo public schools and graduating from West Texas A&M. I’ve held various positions in the Information Technology industry and currently work for Fiserv Insurance Solutions as a Sr. Programmer Analyst. I’m married to my beautiful wife Melissa and we provide food and shelter to Maggie, a very spoiled beagle who thinks she’s human.
Fishing and the outdoors has always been a passion of mine, and I’ve been lucky enough to enjoy many hours with my family perusing outdoor activities. When I’m not fishing with the Panhandle Hawg Hunters or the Panhandle Region Trail, I enjoy fishing trips with my wife and team tournaments with my father.
I’m proud to have the privileged to represent the Panhandle Region, and support angling as a sport and recreational activity.
