National Guard FLW College Fishing National Championship

The Capital City Lake Murray Country Regional Tourism Office is gearing up to host the National Guard FLW College Fishing National Championship April 13-15, 2012 on Lake Murray and in Columbia. Twenty-five participants from colleges and universities from across the country have competed in 20 qualifying events. The top five teams from each region will compete for a top award of $100,000 in this three-day nationally televised event through NBC Sports. Each of the 25 teams competing in the National Championship will be sporting jerseys and fishing out of wrapped Ranger boats towed by Chevy trucks for the competition.

The college teams will fish Lake Murray, April 13-15th, launching at 7am daily from Lake Murray. Daily weigh-ins will be held adjacent to the USC Baseball Stadium at the corner of Blossom and Williams Streets in downtown Columbia. FLW’s College Fishing Festival, a FREE event featuring a sports zone, tailgate games, a climbing wall and Ranger Boat simulator, will coordinate with USC’s home baseball series against Mississippi State.

The FREE festival and daily weigh-in times are below. Weigh-in on April 15 will immediately follow the conclusion of the USC baseball game (approximately 4:30 p.m.).
