Lake Guntersville with Lee brothers

Ranger pros Jordan and Matt Lee will lend an assist on the fabled frog fishery

The “Big G” in north Alabama will play host to the Ranger Cup University Team of the Year championship, but with an interesting a twist: Ranger pros Matt and Jordan Lee will be at the disposal of the finalists to offer hints and advice on topics ranging from dissecting the fishery itself, to pursuing a pro fishing career and procuring sponsors.

The Ranger Cup University Team of the Year Challenge pits the highest-finishing Ranger Cup-qualified team from the FLW College Fishing National Championship against the Ranger Cup-qualified team with the highest finish in the BoatUS College Fishing Bass Championship. For their respective finishes, the two teams will receive a prize package that includes an all-expenses-paid trip to Guntersville, Ala., where they will square off in a made-for-TV fish-off that will be aired nationally on “Americana Outdoors.”

In addition to the Lee brothers’ tutelage, the 2018 Ranger Cup University Team on the Year Championship sill prove to be one of the richest in college fishing thanks to the cash and prizes up for grabs. Additionally, both teams will be competing from a brand-new fully rigged Ranger boat.

“The growth of tournament fishing at the collegiate level has been phenomenal to be a part of,” said Ranger Boats Marketing Director Matt Raynor. “The sport is becoming more widely recognized and mainstream every year and we’re excited to partner with Matt and Jordan on this unique event. They both fished their way to the pros by starting at Auburn and are great examples of how far you can go with college tournaments as a starting point.”
