SnapTail sponsors NCBF Champ Team

SnapTail sponsors National Collegiate Bass Fishing Championship Team The National Collegiate Bass Fishing Champion was held at Lake Lewisville last weekend. After heavy competition all week, the final five teams went after the trophy on Saturday; 4 teams from Texas, including the '07 Champs from Texas A&M, and 1 from Arkansas.

SnapTail Lures of Tulsa, Oklahoma (who sponsors this site) is also a sponsor the University of Arkansas team of Kazuki Kitajima and Bodie Drake who, it was announced, consistently brought in heavy bags all week and their efforts paid off.

Last year's champs weighed in first and held off the next two challengers. Next came University of Arkansas who claimed first place by nearly 2 pounds over Texas A&M with a total of 17.37 lbs. Texas Tech, who claimed big bass of the day, tried to knock out Arkansas, but couldn't do it.

During the trophy presentation, Kazuki wiped away a few tears and who can blame him. It was announced to the crowd that his parents had flown in from Japan to watch him compete. A proud moment for the Kitajima family which drew an loud round of applause from the crowd.

Congratulations to Kazuki, Bodie, University of Arkansas, and SnapTail Lures.

Editor's Note: Thank you SnapTail for promoting the sport of fishing being one of our sponsors too!
