Fergus Falls angler Kaden Hartwell shows off his catch in Friday, July 24 meet on West Battle Lake.

The Fergus Falls High School fishing team took seven of the top eight spots at the Heart O’Lakes Conference meet on West Battle Lake Friday, July 24.

The team of Kaden, Kassten and captain Mike Hartwell took top honors at the meet. The team of Kellen Stenstrom, Sam Dirkman, Abe Pederson and captain Troy Stenstorm would finish third.

“Although some strong winds made for some tough fishing, many teams still found fish,” Otters coach Ethan Soland said. “As always, nothing beats the smiles of these young anglers as they enjoy their time on the water. Great job boat captains on handling some tough conditions.”
