The 2020 season kicks off

That event also featured a 2-hour delay on Day 1 due to fog. The shortened event feature three fish over 8 pounds, including a 10-pounder which helped Wisconsin-Platteville take the victory. 

Connor Choate and Hunter DeSplinter are here this week hoping to defend their title. Cody Huff, the 2019 College Bracket Classic Champion from Bethel University is also in attendance. He is partnered with Dakota Pierce in what should be a busy year for Huff  He just finished the Bassmaster Eastern Open in Florida and has his sights set on the Academy Sports and Outdoors Bassmaster Classic presented by Huk.
