Bethel University’s Huff claims Classic berth
All week long, Cody Huff was the most impressive angler in the Bassmaster College Classic Bracket, and the Bethel University angler concluded his championship run through the tournament at Watts Bar Lake on Thursday.
Huff, a 22-year old senior from Ava, Mo., caught a five-bass limit that weighed 9-14. It wasn’t a tremendous haul, but it was enough for the No. 6 seed to seal a win over teammate and No. 2 seed Carter McNeil in the finals.
It also helped Huff lock down a berth in the 2020 Bassmaster Classic to be held on Alabama’s Lake Guntersville. He claimed $7,500, courtesy of Carhartt, to help pay for travel fees next year. He’ll need the cash, as his win on Watts Bar also earned him entry into each of the Bassmaster Opens to be held next year.
