BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — Brett Preuett sustained a hook in the head, a skinned shin and a hook in the shoe while working to get a Classic berth in the final days of the 2014 Carhartt Bassmaster College Series Classic Bracket. And once he found out he won, he jumped for joy — right off the dock and into Chatuge Reservoir.

The University of Louisiana Monroe student and his teammate, Jackson Blackett, opened up during the B.A.S.S. Twitter chat. The two talked about everything from Preuett's prepping for the Classic to how he hasn't gotten around to doing the dishes (a roommate complained during the chat). Preuett also received good tidings from two previous Classic college competitors — Matt and Jordan Lee — and from the bracket runner-up, Zach Parker.

What makes the ULM team so consistent on blue back herring lakes?

Brett Preuett ‏@brettpreuett16 

We work together as a team figuring out these types of lakes even though we have nothing like it in Louisiana.

 

Jennifer Dome King ‏@BhamJen 

Congrats on the win! What makes you most excited about fishing the #BassmasterClassic?

Brett Preuett ‏@brettpreuett16 

It's been a dream for me these past couple of years, and that's what I want to do for a living. It's the Super Bowl of our sport, what every bass angler dreams of.

 

Emily Hand ‏@ejhand 

Congrats Brett! If bananas are bad luck, what brings you good luck? apples, oranges #fruitloops?

Brett Preuett ‏@brettpreuett16 

Eating a bowl of #FruitLoops might be my good luck charm in the #BassmasterClassic!

Brett Preuett ‏@brettpreuett16

Emily Hand ‏@ejhand 

Were you nervous at all going head to head w @ZParkerfishing on the last day of the bracket?

Brett Preuett ‏@brettpreuett16
