EWU Fishing Team takes fourth place at B.A.S.S. College National Championships

ChatugeDay3

The Eastern Washington University Collegiate Fishing Team of Nick Barr of Lacey and Jarred Walker of Moses Lake took fourth place at the B.A.S.S. College National Championship on Lake Chatuge in Georgia on Aug. 1-3.

This was the first time a college fishing team from Washington has competed at this level, and both local anglers were also the first ever Western Division team to make the Top 5 in any collegiate national championship.

The two anglers caught 19 pounds, 4 ounces of bass on day one and took first place with a six pound lead on the other competitors.

On the second day the pair struggled to catch the fish, but madae a comeback on the final day to finish in fourth place.

Their win earned them a chance to compete in the College Bracket Fish-Off Sept. 26-28 on the Grand River in Michigan. The top four teams are split into eight individuals that compete against each other, and the winner of the fish-off will be invited to the 2014 Bassmaster Classic.
