Shippensburg University wins FLW College Fishing event on Lake Champlain

FLW College Fishing

PLATTSBURGH, N.Y. - The Shippensburg University team of Kevin Hollasch of Marriotsville, Md., and Hunter Chamberlin of Shippensburg, Pa., won the FLW College Fishing Northern Conference event on Lake Champlain Saturday with five bass weighing 17 pounds, 15 ounces. The victory earned the club $2,000 and advanced the team to the FLW College Fishing Northern Conference Invitational tournament.

After winning the FLW College Fishing Northern Conference event on the Potomac River, Hollasch and Chamberlin felt no pressure on Lake Champlain. "We took a gamble and went up north," said Hollasch. "With the rough waters I don't think a lot of other teams did that. We basically just went all-in on our spots up there and it paid off."

Hollasch and Chamberlin weighed three largemouth and two smallmouth, fishing rocks and weeds in 8 to 15 feet of water. "We started off the day and we were going to target smallmouth, but once we got up there and saw the conditions we figured we'd just go and work shallow." The spur-of-the-moment change worked to the tune of a 5-3 largemouth and a win by more than three pounds.

The pair said they exclusively fished a Senko on a drop-shot rig with Trokar hooks and Elite Tungsten weights and didn't lose a fish all day.

The top 15 teams that advanced to the Northern Conference Invitational tournament are:

1st: Shippensburg University - Kevin Hollasch, Marriottsville, Md., and Hunter Chamberlin, Shippensburg, Pa. (five bass, 17-15, $2,000)
2nd: Northwood University - Zach Lowe, Huntington Woods, Mich., and Travis Riedel, Falmouth, Mich. (five bass, 14- 4, $1,000)
3rd: Kent State University - Matthew Fernandez, Dallas, Pa., and Jennifer Newman, South Amherst, Ohio (five bass, 14-3, $500)
4th: Xavier University - Ty Styons, Fairfield, Ohio, and Andrew Decilles, Batesville, Ind. (five bass, 14-2, $500)
5th: Grand Valley State - Scott Taege, Algonquin, Ill., and Matt Smartt, St. Clair Shores, Mich. (five bass, 14-00, $500)
6th: Glenville State College - Brandon Abbott, Glandeeville, W.V., and Nick Lambert, Oceana, W.V. (five bass, 13-9)
7th: SUNY-Plattsburgh - Matt Ziomek, Amherst, Mass., and Myles Tallada, West Chazy, N.Y. (five bass, 13-3)

10th: SUNY-Plattsburg - Frank Benedetto, Islip Terrace, N.Y., and Ted Appleton, Penfield, N.Y. (five bass, 12-4)
11th: Mansfield University - Matt Novitski, Mansfield, Pa., and Colton Otto, Carlisle, Pa. (five bass, 12-3)
12th: Fairmont State University - Ryan Houser, Morgantown, W.V., and Andrew Walker, Fairmont, W.V. (five bass, 11-12)
13th: University of Akron - Christian Combs, Clinton, Ohio, and Brenton Casto, Massillon, Ohio (five bass, 11-11)
14th: Virginia Commonwealth - Alex Miller, Moseley, Va., and Donnie Miller, Midlothian, Va. (five bass, 11-7)
15th: Longwood University - Christopher Hubert, Virginia Beach, Va., and Greg Ewing, Bristow, Va. (five bass, 11-5)
