Fairmont State University Wins FLW College Fishing Northern Conference Event On Chesapeake Bay

Fairmont State University Wins FLW College Fishing Northern Conference Event On Chesapeake Bay
The Fairmont State University team of Aaron Davis of Pleasant Valley, W.Va., (L) and Bryson Grimes of Kingwood, W.Va., (R) won the FLW College Fishing Northern Conference event on the Chesapeake Bay Saturday with five bass weighing 19 pounds, 7 ounces. The victory earned the club $2,000 and advanced the team to the FLW College Fishing Northern Conference Invitational tournament.

NORTH EAST, Md. – The Fairmont State University team of Bryson Grimes of Kingwood, W.Va., and Aaron Davis of Pleasant Valley, W.Va., won the FLW College Fishing Northern Conference event on the Chesapeake Bay Saturday with five bass weighing 19 pounds, 7 ounces. The victory earned the club $2,000 and advanced the team to the FLW College Fishing Northern Conference Invitational tournament.

“My first cast this morning I caught a 4½-pounder,” said Grimes, a senior majoring in Criminal Justice. “We were fishing the southern end of the Susquehanna Flats, targeting the grass. All of our fish came real shallow – in two feet of water or less. We culled four or five times and I’d estimate that we caught around 10 keepers throughout the day.”

“We just moved down the grass lines,” added Davis, a freshman majoring in Occupational Safety. “We probably covered 15 square miles, but we had two spots that turned out to be pretty key for us. I would definitely say that we are comfortable fishing shallow and would consider it one of our strengths.”

The duo said that the majority of their fish came via on white and chartreuse-colored War Eagle spinnerbaits. Davis said that two key fish came late in the day on a white Spro Bronzeye Frog 65, allowing them to cull up two pounds and seal the victory.

“I fished here last year in the Conference Invitational tournament and I only weighed in one fish,” Grimes went on to say. “I really wanted to come back and redeem myself and I’m happy that we were able to do that. The Potomac River is one of my favorite fisheries so I’m really looking forward to fishing in the Invitational again and hopefully we can qualify for the National Championship.”

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

  1st:       Fairmont State University – Bryson Grimes, Kingwood, W.Va., and Aaron Davis, Pleasant Valley, W.Va. (five bass, 19-7, $2,000)
