The National Bass Fishing Trail is proud to recognize the Georgia/Alabama District’s Bradley Harris in the Junior Spotlight. Bradley fished his first tournament with the National Bass Fishing Trail at Pickwick Lake in 2010. Bradley fishes the NBT with his Grandfather Randy Harris. Bradley has had much success fishing the NBT Junior Division. Since he started fishing the NBT in 2010, he has had 8 first place, 4 second place and 1 third place finishes in district qualifiers. He also has 1 second place and 1 first place finishes in the Georgia/Alabama District Championships. He also won the Junior Angler of the Year for the Georgia/Alabama district in 2015. Bradley also fished in 2013 NBT National Championship which was held on Neely Henry in 2014.
Bradley’s favorite type of fishing is soft plastics. His favorite bait is a lizard. He likes to fish it either on a Texas or Carolina Rig. His favorite lake is Lake Martin, and his largest fish to date is a 5lb. 2oz. Largemouth.
Bradley is a senior at Smith Station High School where is plays Football and Soccer. He is also a founding member of the Smith Station High School Bass Fishing Team. The team was formed in 2015 and fished the East Alabama High School Bass Trail.
This will be Bradley’s last season to qualify to fish the Junior Division of the National Bass Fishing Trail. Bradley plans to attend college and hopes to play soccer at the college level. We would like to wish Bradley all the luck in the world with his future endeavors, and we hope to see him return to the NBT in the Adult Division.
