Fishing after high school

Recommended Posts

So I am a sophomore in high school right now. I am wondering how college fishing works and what type of time and effort needs to be put in. What can I do now to better my chances of making the team (I’m assuming there are tryouts of some sort?)? Any tips are appreciated!

Really depends on where you go. Some big teams in the south do the tryouts, but most schools do not. At WVU, if you have a boat, you can fish, and I think that is pretty standard across the board. You just have to have access to a boat.

 

If you want to be able to compete at the collegiate level, you are going to have to put some time in. Look at the amount of time an average college athlete spends practicing. Time on the water is 100% the most important thing.

 

College fishing is a blast, I would highly recommend pursuing it!
