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

FISHING LEAGUE WORLDWIDE

FLW College Fishing Central Conference Opener Set For Table Rock Lake

FLW News Release

KIMBERLING CITY, Mo. – FLW College Fishing is headed to Table Rock Lake April 9 for the first of three regular-season stops in the Central 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.

“Table Rock offers a lot of opportunities to catch big bass,” said Walmart FLW Tour pro James Watson, of Nixa, Missouri. “There’s a lot of color in the water so it’s going to be a great tournament for moving baits.

“The spawning flats will likely play a big role in this event,” Watson continued. “If the water clears up and the temperature continues to rise, there could be some strong sight-fishing areas in coves, especially in the James River. Also, if the water clarity is there, I see a fast-moving jerkbait doing well near bluff-ends.”

In addition to jerkbaits, Watson said that crankbaits and spinnerbaits will likely dominate the field.

“Red or brown-colored crankbaits will be a good bet,” said Watson. “Spinnerbaits in chartreuse and white varieties should catch them as well.”

Watson finished by saying that he expects the winning team to weigh in a five-bass limit nearing 18 pounds.

Anglers will take off from Port of Kimberling Marina, located at 72 Marina Way in Kimberling City, at 6:30 a.m. CST Saturday. Weigh-in will be held at the marina beginning at 2:30 p.m. Takeoff and weigh-in are free and open to the public.
