SENECA FALLS, N.Y. – The Adrian College team of Myles Jackman of White Lake, Michigan, and Zachary Graham of Gallipolis, Ohio, won the YETI FLW College Fishing event on Lake Cayuga presented by Bass Pro Shops Saturday with five bass weighing 20 pounds, 2 ounces. The victory earned the Bulldogs’ bass club $2,400 and a slot in the 2019 FLW College Fishing National Championship.

The two anglers focused on a 75-yard stretch of docks on the eastern shoreline above the Interstate 90 bridge, specifically between the bridge and the lock system. Graham said there were bluegill beds in the area, near both the front and backs of the docks and between the docks along the seawalls.

“We started on the north end of the stretch and worked our way down,” said Graham, a junior majoring in Environmental Studies and Geology. “Myles primarily threw a frog on the grass mats and we ended up weighing two on it.

“I used the jig under the docks and the Zell Pop on the seawalls,” Graham continued. “I caught fish with the jig, but the topwaters got the big keeper bites. They were definitely the key to our success.”

Jackman’s frog was a white Strike King KVD Sexy Frog. Graham used a Booyah Boo jig with a green-pumpkin-colored Berkley Powerbait Chigger Craw and a a hitch-colored XCalibur Zell Pop.

Jackman, a junior majoring in Environmental Science and Geology, said the duo had a limit by 7:15 a.m. before Graham culled out three fish in a row with the Zell Pop to put the Bulldogs up around 17 pounds by 8:30 a.m.

“After the culls we ran down the lake to a point on the east side that had big chunk rock going out into the lake,” said Graham. “There was a 20- to 30-yard trough between the rock and the grassline that we thought the fish would be holding in. I threw the jig in there and on my third cast I caught a 4½-pounder. I culled out a small fish and that put us at 20 pounds.”

The top 10 teams that advanced to the 2019 College Fishing National Championship are:

1st:          Adrian College – Myles Jackman, White Lake, Mich., and Zachary Graham, Gallipolis, Ohio, five bass, 20-2, $2,400

Lake Havasu Midday Update – Day 1

Lake Havasu Midday Update – Day 1

The fishing is hot at Lake Havasu. By 9:30, many of the anglers we’d seen on the water for day one of the Toyota Series Western Division season opener already had limits or had kicker largemouths in the box. Most of those fish were caught off beds, with the majority being caught sight-fishing and the rest coming just by fishing through likely spawning areas. Others were caught out in front of spawning areas and around marinas. The fishing should only get better, too. Currently, there are scattered rain showers, but the sun is shining across many parts of the reservoir, making it a little easier to spot fish on beds.  READ MORE »
