CHATTANOOGA (WRCB) - Tennessee Tech University fishing team finished in fourth place in the Cabela's Collegiate Bass Fishing Open held April 20th and 21st on Kentucky Lake in Paris, TN.

The Tennessee Tech University fishing team weighed 24.83 pounds on day two to give them a total combined weight of 45.16 lbs for the event. Their day two catch was the heaviest weight to be weighed in on the second day of the tournament.

The Tennessee Tech University team consisted of anglers Matt Townson, Will Stansell, Bryson Dalton, and Joe Ellis . According to Joe Ellis, there were some missed opportunity that hurt the Golden Eagles, including some large fish that broke off during the tournament, but their second day rebound helped with the disappointment.

Matt Townson went on to add, "Our team keyed in on an Alabama Rig bite late on day one and we let our partners know about it.  We started the second day on those fish and we camped on them together all day Saturday.  It was exciting to be catching fish and doing it all in sight of each other, it kept both of our boats fired up all day and we had a blast."

The next tournament for these anglers will be the BoatUS Collegiate Bass Fishing Championship, presented by Cabela's on Pickwick Lake May 23rd and 24th.
