A pair of young fishermen who have been best friends since they were first graders have seen their careers continue to blossom.

Blakely Holloway, a ninth-grader at Carthage, and Beckville's Kane Elliott have qualified for $1,500 in scholarship money after placing fourth among more than 125 teams this season.

Holloway and Elliott remained in the top 5 while competing against some of the best fishermen in the area.

The pair is scheduled to be on Lake Palestine Saturday to test their skills in the Weekenders High School Division.
