CSU-Pueblo wins Bass Fishing State Title and Qualifies for Nationals

The 2018 Carhartt Bassmaster College Series National Championship will be held on Lake Tenkiller in Oklahoma on July 19 and The CSU-Pueblo team will be making it’s first trip to the national tournament since the team’s inception in 2015.

CSU’s Austin Miles and Cooper Brown took the state title and earned their birth to the Nationals with a two day total of 14lbs. 6oz on the Pueblo Reservoir earlier this month.  CSU was able to surpass CSU-Fort Collins, Fort Lewis College and Colorado Mesa for the victory.  This represents the first college state championship in Colorado and CSU-Pueblo can hang their banner high with the victory.

Although it was a tough couple of days on the lake as the field was fishing in 39 to 43 degree water temps but with some good teamwork and plenty of hard work they were able to figure out the winning pattern.

In order for the team to make it to the national championship in Oklahoma, they have set-up a GoFundMe account with a goal of $2,000 to pay for expenses. Let’s give these guys some love and send them on their way. The GoFundMe page can be found here or on the team’s Facebook page.

Hey! I am a Married outdoorsman with two wonderful boys. I Love to fish for largemouth bass and love the backwater creeks and cuts of bigger waters. I was a full-time Bass angler who was lucky enough, along with two of my buddies to have numerous Bass lures with patents. I also, enjoy hunting, Mtn. Biking, Ultra trail running and basically anything to do with the outdoors.
