FLW College Fishing
LSU Wins College Fishing Southern Conference Event On Toledo Bend

The LSU team of Richard Murdock of Lawrenceville, Ga., and Beau Hadskey of Baton Rouge, La., won the FLW College Fishing Southern Conference event on Toledo Bend Reservoir Saturday with five bass weighing 20 pounds, 13 ounces. The victory earned the club $2,000 and advanced the team to the FLW College Fishing Southern Conference Invitational tournament.

"Last weekend my partner and I had some really good pre-fishing action going," said Hadskey, a petroleum engineering major. "We were fishing up north and catching them pretty good. But today there were waves out there that were four-feet tall. We chose to stay down on the south end of the lake where it was calmer and ended up doing all of our fishing between Mill Creek Bay and Six Mile Bay.

"We caught all of our fish in six-feet of water or less today," Hadskey continued. "It wasn’t necessarily a grass bite, but we were mainly focusing on the side of points. It really didn’t matter where we were on the lake. We were catching them in the main lake and back in the coves. The key to our success was fishing the shallow areas along the sides of points. We didn’t catch many fish out on the points themselves, but once we got along the sides, we started getting bites.

"We were swimming a jig and using a lipless crankbait," Hadskey went on to say. "We looked for water that was a little bit colored because we weren’t getting as many bites in the clear water. The main baits that were producing for us were brightly colored chartreuse and crawfish patterns."

This is Hadskey’s first brush with FLW College Fishing success. His partner, Richard Murdock, a natural resources ecology management major, is a little more experienced. He has been fishing with FLW College Fishing since 2011 and competed in the National Championship last year at Lake Murray and placed 16th.
