ACA To Host Second Online Tournament During Holiday Break

Anglers will be competing for thousands of dollars in prizes, and the Top 10 at the close of the competition will earn valuable points towards the Bass Pro Shops School of the Year presented by Abu Garcia

During the spring of this year, the Association of Collegiate Anglers hosted its first-ever Online Tournament designed specifically for college anglers. The event was a major hit, with anglers from all across the country submitting legal fish catches and vying for valuable prizes from the top brands in the industry. With the fall semester coming to an end and students having a month-long break from the classroom, the ACA wants to present an opportunity for everyone to get outdoors and engage in some friendly competition with their peers.
