This is the the most asinine thing I have ever seen. Not only is there a such thing as High School fishing, it’s apparently worthy of televising.
There is nothing inexpensive about boat ownership. From maintenance, to fuel, to something to tow the silly thing with. Add in gear for competition-level fishing and then travel. Now a coach. Yes, HS fishing teams each have a coach on the boat with them.
Now I realize there are scholarship opportunities for those who fish collegiately and those fishermen have to come from somewhere but seriously, even fishing as a college sport is ludicrous.
