At the conclusion of Saturday's final round of the 2016 FLW College Fishing National Championship, Tournament Director Kevin Hunt announced that Lake Russell on the South Carolina-Georgia border will be the site of the 2016 Forrest Wood Cup collegiate fish-off on Sunday.
After weighing in only 10 1/2 pounds on day one of the tournament, Illinois State's Bryce Wegman and Taylor Umland cracked a tournament-best limit of 17-1 on day two to move into the lead at the 2016 FLW College Fishing National Championship on Lake Keowee. The Redbirds will lead the top-10 field into competition tomorrow on the final day of the National Championship, which is presented by Insight Genesis College Cup and hosted by Mountain Lakes Convention and Visitors Bureau.
The pros caught a slew of quality fish on day one of the Walmart FLW Tour presented by Evinrude and hosted by Anderson Convention & Visitors Bureau, and with a little warmer start we might well see that again today.
Though we aren't covering the FLW College Fishing National Championship with a Tour-sized crew, we'll still do our best to keep you updated throughout the day. Day two looks like another perfect one for fishing the championship, which is presented by the Lowrance Insight Genesis College Cup.

It's safe to say day one of the Walmart FLW Tour event presented by Evinrude and hosted by the Anderson Convention & Visitors Bureau on Lake Hartwell was a sight-fisherman's fantasyland. Bright sun, no clouds and zero wind for much of the day gave the sight anglers a clear advantage.
There are times when you feel like you did the wrong thing in practice. I did at Hartwell, but that didn't mean I let it get the better of me.
Day one of the Walmart FLW Tour presented by Evinrude on Lake Hartwell featured a ton of strong bags, but only one man cracked 20 pounds. That man was Darrel Robertson of Jay, Okla., who brought 20 pounds, 6 ounces to the scale.
Zackery Hines and Reed Foster of Dallas Baptist University jumped out to the early lead at the 2016 FLW College Fishing National Championship presented by Insight Genesis College Cup on Lake Keowee. Hines and Foster caught a five-bass limit for 15 pounds, 3 ounces and hold a 6-ounce lead over Texas A&M's Josh Bensema and Matthew McArdle in second place. The entire top 10 is packed together, with less than 3 pounds separating first from 10th.

Mother Nature has jumped the gun, but Lake Keowee hasn't quite caught up. That's the dilemma facing the teams competing in the FLW College Fishing National Championship presented by the Lowrance Insight Genesis College Cup and hosted by Mountain Lakes Convention & Visitors Bureau on South Carolina's Lake Keowee.
