Two CMU anglers win college tournament

Two Colorado Mesa University students from Grand Junction won the FLW College Fishing Southern Conference tournament Saturday on Grand Lake in Monkey Island, Oklahoma.

Kennedy Kinkade and Josh Worth caught a five-bass limit weighing 16 pounds, 4 ounces. Winning the Southern Conference title earned them a spot in the Southern Conference Invitational on Sam Rayburn Reservoir near Jasper, Texas.

The top 10 teams in each of the five conference invitational tournaments advance to the 2015 FLW College Fishing national championship.

It was the first tournament Kinkade, who used to play baseball at CMU, and Worth had entered. After landing one big fish early in the competition, they moved to another area of the lake and caught roughly 14 pounds of fish in about 15 minutes, Worth said. The two had 2½ days to practice and scout Grand Lake before the competition. Several students formed a fishing club in April at CMU. Their winning total was nearly two pounds more than the second-place team. Kinkade and Worth won $2,000 for the championship.
