ASUMH is very proud to announce that will be joining more than 240 collegiate fishing teams with two teams in the Carhartt Bassmaster College Series bass fishing tournament this week in Mountain Home!
The tournament will take place April 25-27 on Bull Shoals Lake. “This is the first time ASUMH has entered into a collegiate sports event. ASUMH’s participation in college bass fishing is long overdue, so we are very excited to make this announcement,” said Matt Klinger, sponsor and coach.
The tournament take-off will be at the Bull Shoals Boat Dock at 6:30 AM. The teams will arrive back at the dock for weigh-ins at 2:30 PM. A high school tournament is also scheduled on Norfork Lake on Sunday.
“The Carhartt Bassmaster College Series presented by Bass Pro Shops gives college anglers a platform for competing with their peers in a national setting. Anglers can compete in one of five regionals and in a Wild Card tournament for the opportunity to advance to the national championship. From there, one college angler earns a coveted berth in bass fishing’s biggest tournament, the Bassmaster Classic,” according to the Bassmaster website.
