Slow start for Murray State

Coming into the final day of the Carhartt Bassmaster College Series National Championship, Adam Puckett and Brendan Bingham of Murray State University only trail first place by seven ounces. While the leaders Griffin Fernandes and Hayden Scott of Adrian College were still heading to their starting spot, the Murray state team just boated their first keeper of the morning.

It’s been a slow morning for Puckett and Bingham but they’ve been doing the majority of their damage later in the morning or early in the afternoon.

The second place team started their morning fishing a drift roughly 100 yards away from the tenth place team of Tyler Christie and Trey Schroeder of McKendree University who caught three solid keepers right off the bat.

Puckett and Bingham are making a short run up the river towards the Massena Dam to their heads primary area.
