Greg Vance and Kyle Coffman represented the IBN at Nationals last week at Lake Conroe in Texas. Greg was in second place after the first day of competition and slipped to 12th just out of the top 10 cut for the final day. Thanks guys for doing a great job representing Iowa at Nationals. Also a Non Boater from LA won the entire tournament and is headed to the BASSMASTER CLASSIC!
