Tournament fishing

Two Inland Northwest bass fishing teams traveled to California this weekend and thumped the home-state rivals on their own water.

A two-man University of Idaho bass fishing team – North Idaho boys – won the FLW College Fishing Western Conference Invitational tournament on Clear Lake with a two-day total of 10 bass weighing 41 pounds, 11 ounces.

They finished more than 6 pounds heavier than the runner-up team from Eastern Washington University.

Tanner Mort of Moscow and Austin Turpin of Coeur d’Alene earned their club $4,000 and qualified the team for the 2015 FLW College Fishing National Championship.

EWU’s veteran collegiate angling duo, Jarred Walker and Nick Barr, both of Cheney, finished second with 10 bass totaling 35-pounds, 1 ounce. They won $2,000.
