Day one of the College BASS Central Regional delivered exactly what was expected from the 110 participating collegiate anglers of the, wind a large Lake Amistad bass.  Led by Trent Newman and Cameron Burger, the Patriots stand firm in fifth and 32nd place overall out of the 55-boat field after day one of competition.  Newman and Burger net 15 pounds-14 ounces, repectively, and find themselves in fifth place overall – nearly three pounds shy of the first place New Mexico State team of Tanner Cooper and Memo Nunez.

“We caught them quick this morning and then we worked on our sack throughout the day.  We slowed down for about three hours after the morning bite shut off,” Newman stated.  Burger added, “After we caught our limit in the morning, we were looking for that big bite – we look forward to day two.”

The Patriot Bass Team of Jacob Sepeda and Michael Romagosa were able to secure their limit on day one with 10 pounds-2 ounces and currently sit in 32nd place overall, nine pounds shy of the overall lead.  “It was tough out there today but we managed to catch our limit early,” shared Sepeda.  “We will do our best tomorrow and see what type of day we can create,” added Sepeda.

In order to qualify for the National Championship, which will take place in July, teams must finish in the top 11 teams overall of the 55-boat field.  The Patriot Bass Fishing Team will be back in action on Saturday, March 9th, for day two of the College BASS Central Regional on Lake Amistad.
