Sunday's event was the fifth annual Bassmaster College Classic, and it was held on Lay Lake in Alabama. The winning anglers used pre-spawning movement hints to determine where they should fish, and utlized crankbaits among others to win the day.
The College Classic started at 6:10 a.m. and anglers fished until the weigh-in at 3:45 p.m., purposely earlier than the big weigh-in for the Bassmaster Classic later that evening.
Both the University of Oklahoma and the University of West Alabama have earned berths to next year's Bassmaster College Classic in Greenboro, South Carolina.
