The University of Georgia fishing team advanced to the FLW College Fishing Southeastern Conference Invitational tournament with a win Saturday at Lake Guntersville.
"We saw a few boats, but a lot of our areas we had to ourselves, I think one of the main keys for us today was our rods,” Treadwell explained. “We fished with both ALX Rods and Fenwick Rods and they were clutch when we were throwing that 10XD."
"Our Lowrance electronics were pretty crucial, too,” added Kenney. “We were able to find those big schools out deep and get on the winning fish.”
