The AFTCO Collegiate Bass Open is the first Association of Collegiate Anglers event of the 2021-22 season of the Bass Pro Shops Collegiate Bass Fishing Series. Over 400 of the nation’s top collegiate anglers and teams are in Russellville, AR to compete in this two-day event. At the end of competition today, results will be finalized with the top teams being awarded over $20,000 in prizes and contingencies, as well as qualifying schools will earn double points towards the Bass Pro Shops School of the Year presented by Abu Garcia.
Robert Gee & Luke Byerly from 17th ranked University of Tennessee enter the final day in 1st place with a more than 1.5 pound lead over second place. The main storyline on this final day of tournament competition will center around Gee & Byerly. The duo is locking down to fish the Arkansas River below Lake Dardanelle. Early in the morning, anglers are notified that heavy barge traffic will shorten the amount of fishing time considerably for the teams that lock. Can Gee & Byerly fill out a tournament winning limit in the two and a half hour time window they will be provided?
During the final segment in the show we provide comprehensive coverage of final day weigh-in for the AFTCO Collegiate Bass Open. Tune in to see how it all plays out!
