“It’s hard to believe that we’re hosting our 13th BoatUS Collegiate Bass Fishing Championship Presented by Cabela’s. This event is the one that all college anglers want to win and they’re willing to travel from around the nation to get to Pickwick Lake in Florence, Alabama. The week-long event is always a highlight of the year for me as well as all the supporters of college fishing,” said Association of Collegiate Anglers Director and President of CarecoTV, Wade Middleton.
