Brian Pahl is one of two anglers with prior experience in the College Classic Bracket format. He made it back-to-back years with teammate John Garrett.
They squeaked in by two ounces for this event this year and hope to have success against their Bryan College opponents.
Pahl hasn't registered a keeper in the first 30 minutes, but has landed two short fish so far.
The decision this week is if they target smallmouth, largemouth or both.
