TRENTON, Mich. (Aug. 25, 2021) – The Adrian College duo of Jacob Emery of New Boston, Michigan, and Aaron Jagdfeld of Rochester, Michigan, weighed a five-bass limit totaling 23 pounds, 4 ounces to earn the win last weekend at the Abu Garcia College Fishing presented by YETI at the Detroit River. The victory earned the Bulldog’s bass club $2,000 and qualified the duo to compete in the 2022 College Fishing National Championship.
