University Of Louisiana-Monroe Wins FLW College Fishing National Championship On Beaver Lake

ROGERS, Ark., April 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The University of Louisiana-Monroe team of Paul Clark of Monroe, La., and Brett Preuett of Pineville, Ala., brought four bass to the scales Sunday totaling 12 pounds, 4 ounces to win the 2013 FLW College Fishing National Championship on Beaver Lake. Their three-day total of 14 bass weighing 40-3 gave them a slim 9-ounce margin of victory in a dramatic finish over the University of North Carolina-Charlotte team of Shane Lehew of Charlotte, N.C., and Adam Waters of Denver, N.C.

"I thought we blew it today by only bringing four fish to the scales," said Preuett, who has a degree in business. "I really thought that I had lost it for us. I lost two good ones shallow today, and I felt horrible about it the whole time. I thought we were going to be losing by a couple of ounces. It's been one heck of a ride, and it really hasn't even sunk in yet."

"I don't know whether to laugh or cry right now, I'm so excited," added Clark, a senior majoring in Construction Management.

Pruett said that the Warhawk bass club changed their strategies and techniques each day. He estimated that eight of the 14 bass that they brought to the scales came on a Yum Yumbrella Flash Mob Jr., with the rest of their catch falling prey to a Storm Wiggle Wart crankbait, jigs and shaky-head rigs trailered with a green pumpkin-colored crawfish.

"We hadn't thrown a shaky head all week, but we went back into the very backs of the creeks and Paul pulled one out and started throwing it," Preuett said.
