2018 YETI FLW College Fishing National Championship Qualifiers

The 2018 YETI FLW College Fishing National Championship is presented by Lowrance C-MAP Genesis and goes down on the Red River in Bossier City, La., May 30-June 1. In 2017, teams from around the country qualified for the championship from the Central, Southern, Northern, Southeastern and Western conferences as well as the annual College Fishing Open, and the time has come to crown a champion. At stake is the title of National Champion as well as a Ranger Z175 with a 115-hp outboard. The anglers on the winning team will compete in a one-day fish-off to determine which angler qualifies for the Forrest Wood Cup this August on Lake Ouachita.

Typical winter fishing on Sam Rayburn would call for a lot of lipless crankbaits, Carolina rigs and a focus on offshore structure and submerged grass.

Sam Rayburn has risen steadily since December 10th, and as of January 3, the lake is at 171.43 feet, which is 7 feet over full pool of 164.4 feet. READ MORE »
