The Collegiate birth to the classic last year, and just missed the elite cut this year in the opens.

Nothing too specific but a few questions about the growth off college fishing and any insight in how it might grow in the future. Scholoships or NCAA events and would if the anglers like that idea or keep the format the same?

Andrew said that colleges are starting to recruit anglers. He didn't give any specifics on how to go about applying but he did say that Dallas Baptist University started a scholarship program and the numbers behind advertising costs for a University suggest that this might be a great avenue for them to explore.

UB: Did you like the college Formats or would you like to see it change somehow?

Andrew: Both FLW and B.A.S.S. had their great advantages and both weaknesses. FLW gave winning moneys directly to the schools and then it was difficult to get those funds to the anglers to help with fishing. However they are changing that some in the future. BASS just wasn't as much money, but again that's changing with big donations from different BASS sponsors. Both are getting better with the winning purses.

Boats were always an issue in BASS but if you didn't have one on the FLW side they made it happen. So when fishing FLW everyone was in a bass boat but on the BASS side you'd see us out there in johnboats with kickers. It's hard for a college angler to have his own boat as such an early start in their career. Sure many do, but many don't as well and FLW was better for those.

FLW worked much harder for the angler to make sure they got to fish and had the tools to fish, but BASS gave you a shot at the classic. So both have their appeal to college fishing and why most colleges that do have a team fish both.


UB: Do you think Shcolarships ar in the future for bass anglers?

Andrew: They already are, Dallas Baptist University has a scholarship program and is recuiting it. I think you'll see a lot more colleges get involved in the way of scholarships. If you look at it this way. It cost 20,000 to put a billboard up on a predominant highway, a school could offer that to a student and then get exposure on ESPN, the Outdoor Channel, all kinds of venues that will draw students to their schools. That's the short of it, I could break it out better but I do think we'll see more scholarships.[/b]
