So you thought you’ve had some good days on the water? Chances are none have been as good as Ryan Patterson had last weekend while fishing on South Carolina’s Lake Murray. He’s headed back to Kansas with about $100,000 in cash and prizes.
E-mails I’ve gotten say Patterson is from the Wichita area, though which town varies from e-mail to e-mail. He is a member of the K-State Fishing Club who was fishing in the College Fishing National Championship. Patterson earned his way to the tournament by doing well at other fishing events.
The tournament, by the way, is based on two-man teams. When Patterson’s brother/partner was ruled ineligible, he was forced to fish the event by himself.
