Hunter Bland and Conner Young are students at the University of Florida.
During the FLW College Fishing tournament on Lake Seminole this past weekend the two were ejected from their boat while running to their first spot. Sources at the event claim a locknut came loose on their hydraulic steering at nearly 60 mph.
Thankfully FLW requires all participants to wear life jackets and kill switches while running.
Neither angler was injured and the footage is some of the most amazing we’ve seen of an on the water accident during a fishing tournament. Always be sure to wear your life jackets and use a kill switch.
