Some good advice above. Being a smaller school, I was a boater my freshman year. I will say that every college trail, BASS, FLW and Boat U.S. do everything they can to help and are very well run events. You have to qualify for FLW and BASS championships, Boat US is dependent on how many tournaments you fish.
Stay on top of your classes like stated above. Fish will always be there, so will school, but school is actually more expensive believe it or not.
Not every angler is a pro, at fishing and driving a boat. I'm not saying I am a saint, but some things you see at take off can be pretty mind blowing on how some of us drive.
Always stay in good ties with administration at the school you attend. They can/will be a big help on making decisions for the club or someone to get advice from.
If the school you attend does not have a fishing team, make one. I've only heard of 1 school turning down a fishing program and that was in High School!
