Berkley Baits Prove Key on Day 2

PARIS, TN (October 5, 2019) – The final day of a major bass fishing tournament is one of the most exhilarating moments of an entire event. Everything is on the line, and the sole goal of each and every angler is to go out and win the whole thing. Day two of the 2019 Bass Pro Shops Big Bass Bash presented by Berkley lived up to that hype.

Using only Berkley baits to catch their fish, these college anglers hauled fish after fish across the stage, including the Overall Big Bass of the event. During today’s competition, anglers were permitted to fish with solely Berkley baits. Berkley, a long time sponsor of the ACA and Collegiate Bass Fishing Series, is known for their quality fishing lures and soft plastics. Those Berkley products proved to be a key contributor to anglers who weighed in fish today.

Bennet Kudder from 16th ranked Bryan College won Session 1 presented by Abu Garcia with 4.20 pounds. Entering today with limited expectations, he was not sure that the morning bite would produce a quality fish. “It was a big surprise, I wasn’t really expecting to do well today. Having a good fish early was a surprise,” said Kudder.

Following in compliance with the regulations for tournament action on day two of the event, the Bryan College angler caught the session winning fish on a Berkley bait. Bennett was chunking the Berkley Cane Walker to shallow cover when the bass decided to strike. “We pulled back into a pocket with some rocks in it, and there were some shad there. I threw a Cane Walker, I was reeling the thing in…and it ate my Cane Walker as I was reeling it in,” added Kudder.
