Bryan College Wins College Classic Tournament on Watts Bar Lake
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Cole Sands and Bailey Fain got ahead of today’s unfavorable weather conditions, sacked up a five-bass limit that weighed 13 pounds, 11 ounces and won the Bassmaster College Classic tournament on Watts Bar Lake. A passing cold front left the typical “bluebird” day — high, bright skies and light wind — in its wake, so the winners were happy to secure a limit by about 9:30 a.m. After that, the day grew brighter and the bite became more difficult.
“We thought we’d upgrade the rest of the day,” said Sands, a senior business management major. “We upgraded three times, but they were little upgrades.”
Targeting main-channel banks, the Bryan College anglers caught most of their bass on a Rapala DT6 crankbait and a Strike King KVD 1.5
