Zack Birge and Blake Flurry of Oklahoma State University filmed a video segment and participated in a Twitter chat at the B.A.S.S. TV production office.
Blake Flurry, left, and Zack Birge rely on mad bass fishing skill, of course, but they also trust in lucky shoes and an energy drink.
Carhartt Bassmaster College Series anglers Matt and Jordan Lee attended a meet-and-greet at B.A.S.S. headquarters and were guests on a Twitter chat in the office.
Jordan and Matt Lee are looking forward to a long career in bass fishing.
Being an ESPN cameraman is not without its occupational hazards. Check out this photo sequence documenting the perils of filming competitive bass fishing.
The last thing I remember when I left the final weigh-in of the Carhartt Bassmaster College Series championships this weekend was talking to Leigh Lee, the mother of Matt and Jordan Lee.
The emotions were running as high as the central Arkansas thermometers when Auburn brothers Matt and Jordan Lee stepped to the weigh-in stage for the Carhartt College Series Classic Bracket finals.
Oklahoma State University teammates Zack Birge and Blake Flurry went wire-to-wire across three bodies of water in three days to claim the title of 2012 National Champions.
It was an emotional weigh-in for the anglers, their family and friends, and all who watched as Matt Lee won his bid to fish the 2013 Bassmaster Classic.
