RUSSELLVILLE, Ark. – The Drury University duo of Hunter Baird of Salina, Kansas, and Beau Browning of Hot Springs, Arkansas, weighed a five-bass limit totaling 16 pounds, 10 ounces to earn the win last weekend at the Abu Garcia College Fishing presented by YETI at Lake Dardanelle. The victory earned the Panther’s bass club $2,000 and qualified the duo to compete in the 2022 College Fishing National Championship.

According to post-tournament reports, the duo caught their fish targeting deep offshore structure with a deep-diving crankbait and a shaky-head rig.
