2018 AFTCO Collegiate Bass Open – Day 2

It’s time for the final day of competition at the AFTCO Collegiate Bass Open.  Nearly 500 college anglers will take to Lake Dardanelle in hopes of winning this prestigious event.  Following the first day of competition, weights are stacked closely at the top and it appears to be anyone’s ballgame to win.  However, Lake Dardanelle is known for being a very stingy fishery.  This means that although a team may have caught them well on day one, they may have a great deal of difficulty duplicating their performance again on day two.

Tournament fishing is one of the most difficult sports out there.  Each day anglers take to the water not knowing what conditions may be presented to them, and what pattern the fish will be targeting on.  Add to the mix the fact that several hundred boats have been going down the bank casting to the same areas, and all indications point towards extremely difficult conditions. Tune in to see exactly how final day action will play out.

During this episode we will also introduce you to more great initiatives from AFTCO.  AFTCO is known for their dedication to conservation.  Conservation is what ensures there will be healthy bodies of water and fish populations for future generations.  From the Bass Bus Live Release Boat, to the Bank Bag Program, AFTCO has measures in place to make sure they are doing their part.  We will hear from the competitors as they express their appreciation and gratitude for what this great company is working to accomplish.
