2017 Cabela's Collegiate Bass Fishing Chapmpionship


Every year for the past few years in, the sport of bass fishing heads to Florence, Alabama in May for the Cabela’s Collegiate Bass Fishing Championship on Pickwick Lake. Northern Alabama is truly one of the most supportive areas for bass fishing in the country. When you go to this event, what you notice is the participation by the sponsors, and the professionalism of the event. Every angler there walks away with a huge bag of sponsor products and there are also many incentive programs for the participants. The kids fishing are impressive as well. They have the new technology, and they know how to use it to graph big schools of fish on Pickwick. The tournament will either be won offshore or in the tail race. There is a lot of current moving on Pickwick right now, which usually makes the fish bite well. I love hearing stories the anglers have of the big schools they’ve seen and or caught fish out of. I also love their pure enthusiasm for tournament fishing. It’s going to be a great event. I can’t wait to see who wins.
