SAN ANTONIO, TX (June 7, 2023) – On May 25-26, the Association of Collegiate Anglers contested its 18th BoatUS Collegiate Bass Fishing Championship presented by Bass Pro Shops.  College fishing’s longest-running National Championship event paid out over $30,000 in prizes and contingencies.  One of the major contingencies awarded at the conclusion of the event was Garmin Tournament Rewards.

As the winner of the event, and being the highest placing Garmin user, Tucker Smith claimed the $500 Garmin Tournament Rewards.  Tucker Smith, along with his fellow teammate Hayden Marbut, won the BoatUS Collegiate Bass Fishing Championship presented by Bass Pro Shops with a two-day total weight of 35.24 pounds. The two anglers representing 2nd ranked Auburn University ran a herring spawn pattern out on Lake Hartwell, using a combination of jigs, drop shots, and topwater baits to sack up the winning fish.
