THIS JUST IN: Clarkson team wins the University of Buffalo 2019 College Open bass fishing tournament on Lake Ontario. Read about it here.
Go Golden Knights! Clarkson Bass Fishing Club members Ben Seaman and Dante Piraino reeled in 7th place in the Northeast Regional Competition of the 2019 Carhartt Bassmaster College Series presented by Bass Pro Shops. Next, they'll go on to the national tournament.
The competition took place on the St. Lawrence River in nearby Waddington and at Clarkson's Potsdam campus June 18-21. It drew 149 teams from across the country.
Many of the competitors had never fished the St. Lawrence before, and were awestruck at the size of local smallmouth and largemouth bass. "This place is unreal," one angler said.
