John Garrett and Brian Pahl were the 2016 Runner-ups at the National Championship. They know how to get it done when the pressure is on. John Garrett took the bracket title to represent the entire College Series this year and would love to do it again.
After a slow start in their heavily pressure area they moved and have now completed their limit with 5 fish for 13 pounds. It's going to be tight at the Top 4 bracket cutline, but their flurries have them in contention. They would need 16 pounds or so to be neck and neck for 3rd or 4th spot.
