SAN ANTONIO, TX (March 25, 2017) - Day two of the Cabela's Collegiate Bass Fishing Open on Lake Dardanelle was full of changes - not only with the weather but also on the leaderboard. Though Murray State University dominated 1st, 2nd, and 3rd places going into day two, they knew they would have other strong teams challenging their positions.

As they were all looking to finish strong - in this event as well as in hopes of making a big move in the Cabela's School of the Year presented by Abu Garcia race - the Murray State team of Hunter Mills, Hunter McKinley, Mike Lowry, and Brian Koch brought a very solid 21.21 pound bag to the scales to move up from their 2nd place position to 1st place for the win! With a two-day overall weight of 47.92 pounds, fishing shoreline grass proved to be successful in bringing the pounds they needed on day two into their live well.

As all the teams set out on day two of the Open, they noticed the strong north wind was gone and there were no clouds in the sky. Although the temperatures were starting off cooler than on day one, the anglers expected to see the thermometer climb into the 70's by noon.
