UPCOMING EVENT: YETI FLW COLLEGE FISHING - 2019 - Sam Rayburn Reservoir

FISHING LEAGUE WORLDWIDE

FLW College Fishing Southeastern Conference Opener Set For Crescent Lake

FLW News Release

BUNNELL, Fla. – FLW College Fishing is headed to Crescent Lake Jan. 30 for the first of three regular-season stops in the Southeastern Conference. A full field of college teams will be competing for a top award of $2,000 and a berth into the 2017 College Fishing National Championship.
 
“Crescent Lake is a great place to fish right now,” said Walmart FLW Tour veteran Glenn Browne of Ocala, Florida. “The lake is full of eelgrass beds so anglers will have plenty to work with.
 
“Teams will likely be targeting prespawn bass in areas along the edges of the beds,” Browne continued. “In current conditions, black and blue-colored worms, vibrating jigs, spinnerbaits and swimbaits should do well. If the weather warms, I could see competitors pitching worms into grass holes to entice bass that are spawning early.
 
“Crescent Lake also has a lot of wood and docks,” said Browne. “Casting darker-colored worms in those types of cover could make a good secondary pattern if the grass edges aren’t firing.”
 
Browne said that the winning team will likely need an 18-pound catch to take home top honors.
 
“There are a lot opportunities out there on Crescent Lake,” said Browne. “It’s really going to depend on how much the water warms in the days leading up to the tournament.”
 
Anglers will take off from Bull Creek Fish Camp, located at 3861 W. County Road 2006 in Bunnell, at 7:30 a.m. EST Saturday. Weigh-in will be held at the takeoff site beginning at 3:30 p.m. Takeoff and weigh-in are free and open to the public.
