Jacob Nummy has the distinct honor of leading the team he founded to a national victory.

Nummy was the brainchild of the fishing club at Auburn University at Montgomery (AUM) and he, along with teammate Tom Frink, brought the Carhartt Bassmaster College Series National Championship trophy home to their school.

Today, both Nummy and Frink sat down and answered questions from fans on Twitter. Below is the transcript. Read transcripts from last year's college champions, as well as Elite Series pros, here.

Bassmaster ‏@BASS_nation

Fans, the #collegebass champs are here and ready to take your questions!

Welcome, @tommyfrink and @jacobnummy to the B.A.S.S. headquarters! And congrats on your #collegebass victory.

 

Jacob Nummy ‏@JacobNummy

Very humbled by the opportunity to be a part of all of the things to come from the National Championship win!

Tom Frink ‏@tommyfrink

It's exciting to be here! And we're looking forward to everything coming up!

 

Emily Hand ‏@ejhand

Any advice for colleges just starting up their bass clubs?

Jacob Nummy ‏@JacobNummy

Focus on creating a solid foundation through your club's constitution and then focus on fishing!

 

Helen Northcutt ‏@HelenNorthcutt

Any plans to fish professionally in the future?

Jacob Nummy ‏@JacobNummy

Not at the moment. I'm planning on reviewing my options at the end of my college career. I have one more year left at AUM.

Tom Frink ‏@tommyfrink

Yeah, I'm planning on using College fishing as a stepping stone now. It's the best way to fish while I'm in school

 

chris ‏@ditchell

Congrats! How quickly after winning did you guys start sizing each other up for the Classic Bracket?

Tom Frink ‏@tommyfrink

I don't think we have yet. We're still taking in the National Championship win!

 

Emily Hand ‏@ejhand

How confident were you that your west coast technique would work on chatuge?

Tom Frink ‏@tommyfrink

I was pretty confident in the baits because I know the fish had never seen them. Out West it works on that size of fish.

 

Emily Hand ‏@ejhand

How much longer are you guys fishing the college series? and what are your plans afterwards?

Jacob Nummy ‏@JacobNummy

I've got 1 more yr left that I'll be competing in the college series, & then I'll pursue a job in the fishing industry.

Tom Frink ‏@tommyfrink

This was my last tournament except for the Classic Bracket. My plans for afterwards are work, save money, fish the Opens.

 

Matt Lee ‏@wmattlee

Tyler Reed or Hank Weldon?

Tom Frink ‏@tommyfrink

Trip Weldon.

Jacob Nummy ‏@JacobNummy

I plead the fifth.

 

Aaron Guilbeau ‏@AaronGuilbeau

Besides prefishing looking at lake maps/depths how do y'all prepare for a tourny? Physical mental etc...

Tom Frink ‏@tommyfrink

We went to a different lake that was similar to work on brush fishing and get an idea of what the fish were doing.

 

Emily Hand ‏@ejhand

What was that hat that you wore at launch each day?

Tom Frink ‏@tommyfrink

My buddy got it for me. It's an Operation Iraqi Freedom - I get more comments on my hat than anything else!

 

Alton Jones ‏@BaylorBass

What's the next step in your fishing career? @tommyfrink

Tom Frink ‏@tommyfrink

Hopefully I'll be competing against your dad in the Classic.

 

Emily Hand ‏@ejhand

Watched you guys last weekend on the U. What kind of train wreck net job fish catch was that?

Jacob Nummy ‏@JacobNummy

Haters gonna hate. @tommyfrink says that was a miracle fish!

 

Matt Lee ‏@wmattlee

@tommyfrinkC-Rig Lizard or Texas Rigged Lizard?

Tom Frink ‏@tommyfrink
