Former West Virginia native, Ryan Fulks, was boat captain for his son during the West Virginia Bass Nation High School Championship at Stonewall Jackson Lake on May 2, 2015. His son, Nick Fulks, competed there with a teammate from their local high school. After catching the five bass limit, Nick and his teammate weighed in 13.92 pounds, winning first place for the West Virginia state title.
