College Fishing National Championship Qualifiers

The 2019 YETI FLW College Fishing National Championship is presented by Lowrance and goes down on the Potomac River in Marbury, Md., June 4-6. In 2018, 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. Additionally, both anglers on the winning team qualify for the FLW Cup this August on Lake Hamilton.

Newberry Wins Southwestern Division AOY

Newberry Wins Southwestern Division AOY

It was sweet redemption in many ways for the Texas legend who still owns and operates his Houston-based HVAC company despite spending so much time on the tournament-fishing circuit. Redemption for missing out on the FLW Cup in his first season. Redemption for what Grand did to him earlier this year on Tour (dropping from sixth to 41st with only one fish on day two). And, in a way, validation for a career filled with big accomplishments. READ MORE »
