You don’t have to be a high school senior to win the Bass IQ Angler of the Month as evidenced by the October selection. A member of one of the most active high school fishing teams in the country, Hunter Edwards personifies the quintessential high school angler.
This month we focused on the traits it takes to be a well-rounded tournament angler, and it’s more than just winning every time. Active participation in multiple trails, consistent promotion of his sponsors, mastering critical skills such as the use of electronics, and the willingness to give back through volunteering with tournament activities and events such as Heroes On The Water helps Hunter stand out in a crowd.
Hunter is the son of Troy and Brandi Edwards, and he’s a 14 year old member of the Buckhorn High School Bass Fishing team in New Market, Alabama. He is coached by his dad, Doc Bailey and Shawn Dalrymple.
Alabama Bass Nation, Airport Marine and SAF/FLW trails are keeping Hunter and his team busy in their second season, and their 2018 tournament year isn’t over yet. He’s looking forward to his next event at Logan Martin on November 10th.
As the Bass IQ October Angler of the Month, Hunter wins a $500 college fishing scholarship and an engraved portfolio. All Bass IQ Angler of the Month winners are eligible for the Bass IQ Coaches’ Choice Angler of the Year award, to be announced in May 2019.
