MLF releases '22 schedules for college, high school

Major League Fishing (MLF) announced today the 2022 schedules for the organization's college and high school levels, culminating in the national championships for each circuit.

“We are thrilled to announce our 2022 college and high school fishing schedules, and are looking forward to a fantastic year,” said Kevin Hunt, MLF Senior Director of Tournament Operations, College and High School Fishing. “MLF continues to provide student anglers from high school through college the chance to compete for scholarships and prizes, as well as multiple advancement opportunities to elevate their schools, sponsors and personal brands while working their way up through the MLF circuits. We are looking forward to 2022 being our most successful college and high school fishing seasons yet.”

The majority of high school tournaments are held on Saturdays and are preceded by a college tournament the day prior. This provides students and parents the opportunity to network with prospective college teams and coaches during college weigh-ins to facilitate decision-making on future collegiate fishing careers.

The 2022 College Fishing National Championship will be on Fort Gibson Lake in Wagoner, Oklahoma, March 29-31. Held in conjunction with REDCREST, the 2022 College Fishing championship will provide unique networking opportunities for college anglers with Bass Pro Tour pros and potential sponsors, as well as advancement opportunities for anglers to compete as pros and co-anglers in the 2022 Toyota Series Championship.
