Justin Atkins didn't know what to expect at last year's Carhartt Bassmaster College Series National Championship.
The Mississippi State senior and his partner finished in the top 15 last year, but this year Atkins feels like he and partner Joseph Marty have a good chance of having a better finish.
This year's championship will be held at the same place – Chatuge Reservoir in northeast Georgia – on July 31-Aug. 2.
"Going back this year, I'm looking forward to it," Atkins said. "I got a lot of knowledge on the lake last year, (and) I met a lot of friends that are from over that told me things. That lake is a big spotted bass lake and they just fish different. (in) talking to them, (it's) the things I've learned about how to approach a spotted bass lake than large mouth fishing like I do here. 
"I just feel like I'm a lot more prepared this year and I'm really looking forward to going back."
