This afternoon we will know who will be the college fisherman at the 2015 Bassmaster Classic on Lake Hartwell
The final round 2014 College Classic Bracket gets underway. One of these anglers will compete in the 2015 Bassmaster Classic.
The saying that one would rather be lucky than good applies to many things, especially so in fishing.
Round 2 of Classic Bracket competition comes to an end as the final four head in for weigh-in.
Early on, Zach Parker of Bethel University is hooked up and trying to subdue a wily Chatuge spotted bass.
Head out on the water for Round 2 of the Carhartt College Series Classic Bracket on Chatuge Reservoir.
It's tough being a little fish in a big pond. This little guy narrowly escaped an attack near Brett Preuett this morning. Probably didn't live to tell about it for long.
I've caught up with Bentley Manning of Tennessee Tech. He's going for broke with shallow water largemouth, and so far he's only got one keeper in the box, but it's heavier than 3 pounds. He's working docks in the backs of creeks. Despite his line passenger, his opponent Brett Preuett is after smaller spotted bass, so if Manning can snag another keeper or two of the same size, he might have a shot at advancing to the final tomorrow.
We're at the dam now with Robert Giarla who has one 2-pounder. This picture is facing in the other direction. What you don't see are pleasure boats. Today is Monday and most people are back at work. The last couple days we've seen 10 to 20 boats running around at all times. No boats muddying the water for the anglers so far this morning.
